It seems as though Yacine Adli could get his first start of the season after all with Stefano Pioli strongly considering using him as Rade Krunic’s replacement.
That is according to Sky (via MilanNews) who gave an update in view of tomorrow’s match away against Cagliari. They stated Pioli is increasingly thinking of fielding Adli in front of the defence in place of the injured Krunic.
It would be the Frenchman’s first start of the season, and it would be in a position that he was used in throughout preseason, meaning Pioli will stick to his guns. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tijjani Reijnders should play alongside him.
In attack, there should be rest for Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud and therefore a new-look trident formed of Samuel Chukwueze, Noah Okafor and Christian Pulisic. We will see if these hypotheses will be confirmed in the final session scheduled for this afternoon at Milanello.
