Having claimed a confidence-boosting win at Stamford Bridge in the reverse fixture, Chelsea will be looking to land a similar blow on struggling AC Milan at the San Siro this evening in this intriguing Champions League Group E fixture. 

Chelsea have named a much changed side from the weekend, with Christian Pulisic dropped to the bench, Jorginho coming in for Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield and Trevoh Chalobah replacing the injured Wesley Fofana, with N’Golo Kante unavailable.

Former Chelsea star Olivier Giroud meanwhile leads the Milan forward line, with support from Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao.

Last Wednesday's emphatic victory for Graham Potter's men saw Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubayemang and Reece James all get on the scoresheet. Can they do it again? Here's how to watch an AC Milan vs Chelsea live stream online, wherever you are.

Chelsea made it three successive victories on the bounce with another comfortable 3-0 win at home to Wolves in the Premier League at the weekend, a match that saw Potter rest a number of players ahead of this European clash. Milan meanwhile managed to put their midweek disappointment behind them with an impressive 2-0 win at home against Juventus on Saturday.

The two teams come into this game both on four points after two games and trailing surprise Group E leaders RB Salzburg. Milan have failed to beat the Blues in their last five meetings, with their last win against the West Londoner's coming in the Fair's Cup all the way back in February 1966.

Quite the record to overturn. Follow our guide to get an AC Milan vs Chelsea live stream and watch the Champions League online from anywhere.

How to watch AC Milan vs Chelsea from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream AC Milan vs Chelsea in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to watch Champions League football like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also really easy to use.
