AC Milan have conceded too many goals at the start of this season, as became very evident in the 1-2 loss against Napoli. And there are many factors behind this decline, as a report highlights.
Despite controlling large parts of the game, especially after the equaliser, Milan ended up losing the game 1-2. The two goals conceded stemmed from two defensive mistakes: first Dest’s tackle on Kvaratskhelia and then Tomori’s poor marking of Simeone.
As Corriere Della Sera highlights (via MilanNews), Milan have already conceded eight goals in seven games. Last season, they conceded just 31 goals and it’s becoming clear that the figure could be higher this campaign.
Tomori has performed below his standard thus far, as the newspaper continues, and Kjaer has only just regained good fitness. Kalulu has perhaps been the better of the three, but his inexperience has also shone through at times.
Milan are expected to work a lot on the defence during the international break, using video analysis, and hopefully this will help. But above all, the players need to raise their individual performance.
