GdS: Probable XIs for Atalanta vs. Milan – Kjaer back in while faith in Rebic persists

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is set to persist with Ante Rebic up front yet again in Sunday’s game against Atalanta, a report claims.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pioli will pick Mike Maignan in goal yet again with a back four of Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez for the game in Bergamo against Gian Piero Gasperini’s side.

Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie are expected to be the double pivot with Ismael Bennacer getting a rest and the Ivorian being given a chance to redeem himself after Tuesday night’s red card.

The attacking trident of Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao should once again get the nod as per the newspaper, while Olivier Giroud is not yet back to 100% so Ante Rebic is anticipated to be the man leading the line in the last game before the upcoming international break.

    No, no, no, no, no… This has to be wrong! Why Pioli?!?! Please tell me why Kessie again?!?! WTF is wrong with you?

      Pioli must be asked to be leave…

      Are you well? Do you realise that only 3 people have been available in the midfield since Krunic and Bakayoko got injured? Do you understand team management? You think Tonali and Bennacer should be overworked until they pick up a long term injury?

      When Krunic and Bakayoko returns from the treatment table, then the coach has more options to rotate and Kessie can be ignored till he leaves.

        Then you start with good players, score a few goals and then change the formation and play with 5 in the back and 1 in front of them instead of 4 and 2 and remove the need to have that sack of s*it on the pitch entirely.

        Anything is better than having one of your players actively plying against you.

          They said kessie is getting bad performance after coming from international duty cus of injury. So maybe it’s something like rollercoaster

    Bench Kessie – play Calabria w/ Tonali and Kalulu right back. Kessie is in shit form due to contract biz… DROP HIM

    Yo personalmente como gran fanático del Milan creo que la hora kessie ya terminó , deberían de venderlo en la ventana de invierno para sacarle algo de dinero ,y no dejarlo y gratis , de todos modos el Milan está muy bien armado en el medio y más con el jugador que compraron en Francia que está a préstamo ,adli y hay otro que está en la mira no me recuerdo el nombre , en realidad es hora que se termine de ir kessie , ya no cuadra en el equipo , se nota que perdió la pasión por el Milan , y si no hay pasión no hay nada que se valla
