A total of seven AC Milan players are currently on the sidelines and that is far from ideal for head coach Stefano Pioli. Ahead of the important clash against Napoli on Sunday, a report has taken stock of the injury situation.
The Rossoneri were without some key players in last night’s 3-0 defeat against PSG, including Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and had few options on the bench as well. For the game against Napoli, therefore, Pioli is hoping for an improvement on that front.
According to MilanNews, Noah Okafor and Luka Jovic could both recover in time for the game after struggling with muscle fatigue. As for Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he still recovering from his muscle inflammation and will be assessed day-to-day. He could make the game, but it depends.
Samuel Chukwueze and Marco Sportiello are dealing with injuries to the left hamstring and left calf respectively. It will take some time for them to return to training and thus there are no real updates on them today.
Finally, Fikayo Tomori left the game against PSG with some pain (replaced by Simon Kjaer) but it was only due to a knock. He’s considered fit, in other words. Ismael Bennacer and Mattia Caldara are also on the injury list, but their respective recovery will take much longer.
