It was a good result for Chelsea at San Siro, as the Blues defeated AC Milan 2-0.

Goals from Jorginho and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the win for Chelsea.

The bad news however is that there’s an injury scare for key player Reece James.

During the second half of the game, James was forced to hobble off after struggling to shake off an issue that he had picked up minutes earlier.

Chelsea boss Graham Potter is hopeful it isn’t a long-term injury.

James will undergo a scan on the injury over the coming days, but Potter has hinted that the problem may not be as bad as initially feared.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Graham Potter said: “We’re hoping he’ll be ok. We’ll need 24 to 48 hours. We’ll know more after that.”
