AC Milan will have to shift focus from the Champions League to the league as they will take on Napoli this Sunday. It’s a huge game for the Rossoneri and some of the XI choices can already be predicted.
Stefano Pioli and his men will need to bounce back with a win after two defeats, but the injury situation is still not ideal. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Noah Okafor could be back for this one, though, which would be a huge boost.
In defence, Davide Calabria should play from start after coming off the bench against PSG, with Theo Hernandez on the opposite side. The heart of the department, however, is a bit up in the air as Fikayo Tomori might need some rest. Simon Kjaer appears to be in line for a starting spot, especially since Malik Thiaw is suspended.
Further up the pitch, a lot will depend on the condition of Loftus-Cheek. His return would likely put Yunus Musah on the bench, with Tijjani Reijnders and Rade Krunic/Yacine Adli completing the department.
Finally, Noah Okafor should be back for this game after struggling with some fatigue and is set to replace Olivier Giroud. Luka Jovic is suffering from muscle fatigue, forced to abandon the warm-up yesterday, and his condition will have to be monitored.
Probable Milan XI (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Kalulu (Tomori), Hernandez; Loftus-Cheek (Pobega), Adli/Krunic, Reijnders; Pulisic, Okafor, Leao.
