Sky: Jovic may not start against Cagliari whilst Pulisic could hold his place

By Euan Burns -

Luke Jovic may not be set for his first AC Milan start against Cagliari despite previous suggestions that he would be replacing Olivier Giroud.

As has been reported by Sky Sport Italia’s Peppe Di Stefano at Milanello (via Francesco Nasato), the Serbian striker is not expected to start in Sardinia.

Stefano Pioli is almost certainly going to be giving Giroud a rest given he did not look at his best against Verona on Saturday and there is a game against Lazio at the weekend to think about.

Other reports said that the front three would be made up of Samuel Chukwueze, Noah Okafor and Jovic but Di Stefano thinks that Christian Pulisic is going to keep his place.

This suggests that Okafor would be the player at the centre of that three rather than Pulisic or Chukwueze, but the latter two players both prefer to be on the right wing rather than the left.

  1. Expensive bench warmer. Big Boss of Milan will be so upset to see his money burn away. Poli needs to put on a jersey instead of suit. He will be the best player on the field

  2. Puli prefers the left but since its hard to find a good rw he kinda end up doing that most of the time and he does it well enough. his best season ever 9G4A with chelsea was lw

  3. sooo….





  4. why not go back to 4-2-3-1?






      1. We won d league with that formation bro. It works but pioli need to play d best players and some players need to rest. That’s where d problem lies

        1. We won the league with players. Players that are no longer in this club.
          I could go into detail why a 4231 wont work on the long run for this set of players but i recon id just waste my time.
          We also won the CL with the xmas tree formation. lets play with that…

          1. Yep. The 4231 need players than can play double pivots which we don’t have anymore. We got players for the 433 so best to stick with that formation

        2. Yes we won the league with that formation. But outside Benacer and Krunic who played a lot on that formation, the new players never play together with 4231 formation.

          So it doesn’t makes sense to used 4231 again when new players already used that 433 formation at pre-season, league, and Champions matches.

  5. Jovic shouldn’t play until he gets fit, he is visibly not there yet. Okafor should play in front, at least from 1st minute. Also, Chukwueze should 100% play this one, ideal for him to get into it slowly.
