Chelsea beat AC Milan 3-1 on Wednesday evening in the first event ever to be held at the brand new U.S. Bank Stadium. New singing N’golo Kante made his first appearance in a Blue shirt and fans liked what they saw from the Frenchman. 

 

Bertrand Traore opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 24th minute, but AC Milan managed to pull one back in the 38th minute through a brilliant Giacomo Bonaventura freekick. Both sides looked threatening in the second half, forcing saves from keepers Thibaut Courtois and Gianluigi Donnarumma on numerous occasions.

Mid-way through the second half, Oscar scored his first of the night after converting a penalty conceded by Milan’s Andrea Poli, who blocked a cross from Cesar Azpilicueta with his hand. The Brazilian added his second of the night in the dying stages of the game after rifling in a low shot from Juan Cuadrado’s perfectly weighted pass.

Chelsea fans were happy with Oscar’s performance, but it was N’golo Kante and young midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah who had the Blues’ supporters most excited.
