Sky: Paqueta and Kessie to switch sides in Milan’s midfield vs. Lecce

By Oliver Fisher -

Franck Kessie and Lucas Paqueta will reportedly switch positions in Milan’s game against Lecce at San Siro.

The Rossoneri will play their first game under new head coach Stefano Pioli as they welcome their newly-promoted opponents on Sunday night.

Pioli will be looking to turn around a team who have lost four of their first seven league games to start the season.

A 50,000 strong home crowd is set to welcome Milan back after the international break, though protests are expected from fans.

According to the latest from Sky Italia, Pioli will use a 4-3-3 formation and bench Krzysztof Piatek, with Suso, Rafael Leao and Hakan Calhanoglu set to be the starting front three.

In the midfield though there could be a small change, as they expect Kessie to swap over to the left side and Paqueta to move to the right.

MILAN (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Conti, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Theo; Paquetá, Biglia, Kessie; Suso, Leão, Calhanoglu.
