GdS: Probable Milan XI to face Udinese – Pioli to keep faith in team that beat Roma

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will look to extend their running win in the league to four games tomorrow night when they face off against Udinese at the Stadio Friuli.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below) states that Stefano Pioli is not expected to change anything in terms of the starting line-up compared to the team that beat Roma.

That means Mike Maignan will be in goal again with a back four of Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Matteo Gabbia and Theo Hernandez ahead of him. Gabbia has the confidence of Pioli, while having Theo back on the left has positives that the Roma game showed.

In midfield, the paper state that it will be a double pivot of Yacine Adli alongside Tijjani Reijnders. The former scored his first goal for the club during the victory last weekend and will look to build on arguably his best game.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be ahead of them in a more advanced midfield role, flanked by Christian Pulisic to his right and Rafael Leao to his left.

Olivier Giroud is down as the centre-forward but he has been battling with the flu this week and only returned to training yesterday, so Luka Jovic remains ready.

Predicted Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Gabbia, Theo; Adli, Reijnders; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Giroud.
