It is no harm if you have a plan B to take the train from Milan main station directly to Zurich airrport, you might need it as Milan is strike prone.
The train takes about 4 hours and costs the same as the taxi ride from the city center to Malpensa which is in the middle of nowwhere.

Thinking of this kind of mileage run with LX later this year, which airport as starting point for connection in ZRH is "safer" regarding strikes, LX plane cancellation, fog, weather delays:

MXP, BCN, FCO, MAD, BUD?
