Good evening from Stamford Bridge
Hello and welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of this evening’s Champions League group stage contest between Premier League giants, Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb.
Graham Potter can afford to relax, knowing that they are automatically through whatever the result this evening. However, a 4-1 defeat to his old club Brighton on the weekend will leave the Chelsea boss with a lot of making up to do, starting with a win tonight.
Their opponents are off the back of a domestic loss and 4-0 defeat to AC Milan. However, they have tasted victory over the London side already this year, winning 1-0 on a day that proved to be Thomas Tuchel’s last as Chelsea manager.
Three points are a must for the Croatian side if they are to stand a chance of slipping into the Europa League net. However, AC Milan must also secure victory if this is to happen.
The action is scheduled for 20:00 in West London and we will bring you team news shortly as we build up to kick-off at the Bridge.
