MN: Milan must exploit Chukwueze’s positive form as Pioli faces Roma decision

By Isak Möller -

Samuel Chukwueze has gone from strength to strength in recent weeks and against Sassuolo, the winger should get the chance from start. Indeed, AC Milan should make the most of his recent form, perhaps by starting him against Roma as well. 

As highlighted by MilanNews, Chukwueze has certainly come to life after what was a tough start to the season. Coming off the bench against Roma last time out, he created the best chance of the game after some great dribbles, delivering the ball on a silver platter for Olivier Giroud (who somehow missed).

Tomorrow, taking on Sassuolo away from home, the Nigerian is set to get the chance from start on the right flank. With the reserves playing up front, he will need to lead the line and help Milan create chances, which he can do so well.

In the event of positive performance, it will almost be impossible for Pioli not to consider him for a starting spot against Roma. His creativity will be needed as Roma likely will play with a low line in front of their home fans, and with a 1-0 aggregate lead in the bag.

What was an easy decision in the first half of the season has now become very difficult. Therefore, Pioli might even have to opt for a Lecce-esque solution, starting both Chukwueze and Christian Pulisic in the attacking trio.

  1. Yeah definitely replace Pulisic who has some of the best numbers amongst all serie a players this year for a guy who has made a couple decent dribbles lately — if you want to see what happens if you do this go see how Chelsea was managed the last couple years. You will lose Puli if you start benching him –

    1. It’s called rotation, not permanent starting.

      Pulisic just played against Roma 2 days ago and we want him to play again on the 2nd leg with a fresh legs. Meanwhile Chuk also in good form. So it’s not wrong to start Chuk against Sassuolo.
