MN: Probable Milan XI for trip to Lazio – Tomori and Theo recover; choice made up front

By Oliver Fisher -

It seems as though AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli will be able to count on two key defenders for the trip to face Lazio tomorrow, a report claims.

Pioli gave an update on the situation regarding a number of different injured players ahead of tomorrow’s game during his pre-match press conference. He confirmed that Ibrahimovic won’t be available but will return against Benevento, while Theo could play a part and Fikayo Tomori is struggling with a minor problem.

According to the latest from MilanNews, both Tomori and Theo Hernandez should be fit enough to start the game in the capital, with Simon Kjaer and Davide Calabria completing the defence. Kessie and Bennacer will be the double pivot, with Saelemaekers wide on the right, Rebic on the left and Calhanoglu the playmaker behind striker Mario Mandzukic, preferred to Rafael Leao.

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