AP Sports Writer

MILAN (AP) — What a difference a week makes. Chelsea was at the bottom of Group E but two straight victories over Serie A champion AC Milan has seen it move into pole position to progress to the Champions League round of 16. Chelsea moved to the top of the group with a 2-0 win at Milan. The Rossoneri played most of the match with 10 men after former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori was sent off in the 18th minute after also giving away a penalty. Jorginho converted the spotkick and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled the visitors’ advantage in the 34th minute to help Chelsea to its first win on Italian soil since 2003.
