CorSport: Pulisic and Chukwueze battle for Milan starting place against Inter

By Euan Burns -

There is going to be a straight fight between Christian Pulisic and Samuel Chukwueze for the starting spot on the right wing when AC Milan face Inter on Saturday, a report claims.

As has been reported by Corriere dello Sport (via Pianeta Milan), the American and the Nigerian both want to start in the same spot for the biggest game of the season so far.

Pulisic has been winning this battle so far this season as he has started all three Serie A games and has been impressive.

Chukwueze will have to perform very well in training to get Stefano Pioli to alter what has been a winning formula so far this season.

Pulisic will be one of the latest players to return from international duty, though, which could lead to some fatigue that Chukwueze can take advantage of.

Chukwueze came back to Italy on Monday and is already back at work, preparing for the derby.

  1. I think you would have to start pulisic ,,and if possible as close to the starting line up ,that was used against Roma ..( that of course perhaps) will not be possible.
    I think we will have to see how the team plays in the first half against inter ,..then of course make changes
    with substitutions ,,.at some stage of the game ..
    We must remember that the season is long and all squad members will / should be given a chance .

  2. Pulisic is Squishy, and Chukwueze is technically gifted. If opponent tends to “Park-the-bus”, Chukwueze will very handy to beat more than 1 defenders and break the bus.
    But if opponent tends to do high pressing, fast & physical, Pulisic will be the best choice.

    So it’s very logical to start Pulisic over Chukwueze.
