England international defender, Fikayo Tomori has asserted that AC Milan are determined and ready to make amends for the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea when they meet again for the Matchweek 4 of the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
Goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James earned all three points for the West London outfits who had already suffered a defeat away at Dinamo Zagreb, and a draw against RB Salzburg.
The Rossoneri responded perfectly to the defeat at Stamford Bridge by winning 2-0 against Juventus in the Serie A. Goals from Fikayo Tomori and Brahim Diaz ensured they established themselves as a major contender to retain their title.
When speaking to Standard Sport ahead of the Tuesday match, Tomori’s anger and determination to make things right came to light.
“We are here to redeem ourselves. Against Chelsea [last week] it wasn’t the real Milan, and it wasn’t the reaction we wanted. We know we have to learn from this match.”
“After the match against Chelsea I was angry and I wanted to give everything on the pitch, when I scored the goal [vs Juventus] that was my feeling. I wanted to cancel the performance against Chelsea, and I expressed how I felt.” he said.
Chelsea and AC Milan are currently joint on the same points in Group E as they fight for first and second in a very tight mix.
