AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is set to make a few changes to his starting XI to face Udinese compared to the team that beat Roma.
Ante Rebic, Hakan Calhanoglu and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all came off with muscle problems in the win against Roma, but La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Rebic will be available for the game against Udinese, however the latter two wont.
A back four of Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez will be in front of Gianluigi Donnarumma, with Tomori and Calabria rested. Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie will be the double pivot, with Samu Castillejo, Brahim Diaz and Rebic acting behind the centre-forward Rafael Leao.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Kalulu, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Castillejo, Brahim, Rebic; Leao
Probable Udinese XI (3-5-2): Musso; Becao, Bonifazi, Nuytinck; Stryger Larsen, De Paul, Walace, Arslan; Zeeglaar, Pereyra; Llorente.

if that’s the starting XI, we are going to get plastered
might be a good match for Romagnoli de regain confidence, but in attack we’ll be lucky if we get 1 or 2 shots on goal
Udinese are going to steal so much possession from us in the final 3rd that one can only pray for our counter attacks to work
