Italian champions AC Milan have suffered their first defeat in the UEFA Champions League after the 3-0 loss to Premier League giants Chelsea. AC Milan and Chelsea have been drawn together in the same Champions League group this year in addition to Red Bull Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb. The four teams are in Group E as far as the Champions League group stage campaign for this season is concerned.

AC Milan were unbeaten in their first two GroupE games before the Chelsea game at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. The two-match unbeaten run came to an end courtesy the 3-0 defeat to the Blues. On their part, Chelsea had not won any game in the group before the victory over Milan.

Chelsea took the lead at the expense of Milan in the first half through Wesley Fofana. The Frenchman scored for the Blues from close range before he departed the game as a result of a knee injury. Chelsea paid £70m to sign Fofana from Leicester City in the summer and he scored his first goal for the club with his first half opener.

Gabonese attacker Pierre-EmerickAubameyang has made a decent start to his Chelsea career with a goal in three games before the Milan game. His debut goal for the Blues came during the 2-1 comeback victory over London rivals Crystal Palace on Saturday. He made it two goals in two games in all competitions and two games in four Chelsea games with the second goal during the win over Milan off the assist from England international right-back Reece James. James then turned goalscorer to seal the three points for Chelsea with three goals scored and none conceded.

After the win over AC Milan, Chelsea move off the bottom in Group E to second spot. On their part, AC Milan drop from first to third.
