Sky: Injury worries increase further with Kjaer set to miss Napoli game – Gabbia ready to step up

By Oliver Fisher -

Just as it seemed AC Milan would have some continuity in the centre-back department, bad news has arrived regarding Simon Kjaer.

Milan will be looking to take a big step towards top four qualification with a win against Napoli at San Siro tonight. Despite the injury crisis, playing without six potential starters, the Rossoneri did well at Old Trafford in midweek and could perhaps have got more than a draw.

Milan will be without Calabria, Romagnoli, Bennacer, Ibrahimovic and Mandzukic for the game against Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli at San Siro tonight, but Calhanoglu, Theo Hernandez and Rebic are back.

According to what is being reported by Sky Italia (via MilanNews), Kjaer seems destined to miss tonight’s match against Napoli. The Dane is not at an optimal physical condition and therefore there will be a chance for Matteo Gabbia, who will partner Fikayo Tomori.
