Stefano Pioli has got a plan in place that could deliver another title for this AC Milan team, with the change in shape being at the centre of it.
As highlighted by La Gazzetta dello Sport, there are many that think Milan are the favourites to win the Serie A title this season, a year after Napoli took their crown away.
These whispers began when multiple new players started to arrive, and they have only intensified after winning the first two games of the season.
The main part of Pioli’s Scudetto-winning project this season is the decision, after four years of using a 4-2-3-1 formation primarily, to move to a 4-3-3.
He has revitalised some players and allowed the club to shop more effectively in the transfer market this summer.
The arrivals of Tijjani Reijnders and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the midfield have provided more dynamic running, whilst there are more interchangeable parts when it comes to full-backs with Davide Calabria and Alessandro Florenzi fully fit.
