AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is set to field a front four that he is yet to put on the pitch together this season for tonight’s game against Genoa.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pioli will use what many would consider to be his strongest defence with Pierre Kalulu (coming in for Alessandro Florenzi), Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori (back from injury and in for the suspended Romagnoli) and Theo Hernandez in front of Mike Maignan.
There should be a double change in midfield too with Franck Kessie and Sandro Tonali likely to get the nod, as Ismael Bennacer out due to an inner ear infection and Bakayoko set to be benched.
The attack is where things get interesting, as Alexis Saelemaekers is likely to swap over to the left wing and Junior Messias get his first start on the right side, with Rade Krunic acting as the playmaker behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Messias, Krunic, Saelemaekers; Ibrahimovic.
Probable Genoa XI (3-5-2): Sirigu; Biraschi, Masiello, Vasquez; Sabelli, Sturaro, Badelj, Rovella, Cambiaso; Bianchi, Ekuban.
