Theo Hernandez was booked in the clash against Lazio last night and this means he’s just one yellow card away from suspension. Fortunately, he’s the only player that has been so ‘reckless’ for AC Milan so far.
It was a rather unnecessary challenge from the Frenchman that resulted in a card last night and he will now have to be careful. Genoa are up next in the league and it’s possible that he could be rested, given that Juventus are next after the break.
Taking a look at the yellow cards standings at Milan, Hernandez is obviously at the top with four and then we have Malick Thiaw with three. Ruben Loftus-Cheek has two cards to his name but the rest of the players only have one. Of course, Fikayo Tomori got a so-called double yellow card and was sent off against Roma.
It remains to be seen if Stefano Pioli will play Alessandro Florenzi or Davide Bartesaghi on the left, should he decide to rest Hernandez. In any case, the latter will be an important player in the game against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
