MN: Probable Milan XI for trip to Lazio – one small doubt as Pioli makes choices in attack

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will be looking to take comfort from their travels once again when they face Lazio tonight at the Stadio Olimpico.

MilanNews writes how the Rossoneri are ‘angry, determined and focused’ and will immediately have to prove that they have learned the lesson from the Sassuolo defeat both from a technical and psychological point of view.

In terms of selection choices there is one dilemma to resolve in the back four and that is whether Theo Hernandez will be ok to start over Diogo Dalot, and the feeling at the moment is positive regarding the Frenchman. Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori will be the centre-back pairing with Davide Calabria at right-back and Gianluigi Donnarumma in goal.

Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie will be tasked with shutting down the creative elements of the Biancoceleste midfield and in particular Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. In attack, Mario Mandzukic should get the not over Rafael Leao with Hakan Calhanoglu as the No.10 plus Ante Rebic and Alexis Saelemaekers either side.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria; Tomori; Kjaer; Theo; Kessie; Bennacer; Saelemaekers; Calhanoglu; Rebic; Mandzukic.
