The chaotic Champions League schedule continues through October as clubs across the continent churn out football games like they’re going out of fashion. The winter break is set to serve as a big hurdle for these teams to overcome and as such, they need to determine their European progression before the World Cup gets underway.

Last night, Chelsea took a big step forward in their own season as they saw off the challenge of AC Milan with a 2-0 win at the San Siro.

The Potter show

Graham Potter has now won four of his first five games in charge of Chelsea Football Club and one of the most intriguing things about that is how composed he’s been since taking the job. He’s found a system that works, and he’s already executing it brilliantly. The masses are already raving about him and with results like this, it’s not hard to see why – and it’s clear that the England job could be there for the taking if he so desires, depending on how the Three Lions perform in Qatar.

Harsh Milan luck

Fikayo Tomori, who was playing against his former employers, was sent off and gave away a penalty early in the first half. When you take a look back at the evidence it’s really hard to justify both of those decisions being made, and in reality, it completely changed the course of the game. If it hadn’t have happened, perhaps Milan would’ve been able to grow more into proceedings, especially with their talent in the final third.

A group of unpredictability

Chelsea have seven points, RB Salzburg have six points, AC Milan and Dinamo Zagreb both have four. With just two games left to be played for all four, it really is anyone’s guess as to how this thing is going to play out. We suspect the Blues will now be able to march towards qualification but the manner in which every team has stepped up has made Group E must-see viewing, something very few expected it would be when the draw was made.
