CM: Strong display from Tomori and Kalulu the highlight for Milan against Inter

By Oliver Fisher -

In a game without goals under the lights of San Siro, it is natural to take a look at the defensive department and to praise AC Milan’s resilience. report how Milan put in a strong performance against their city rivals and certainly could not be accused of playing the game in a half-hearted way, playing the better football but failing to find a way past the excellent trio of Bastoni-Skriniari-De Vrij.

Not having conceded an away goal in the first leg is very much a bonus and the best news of the evening was the performance of Fikayo Tomori, who made several vital interventions to put any notion of post-injury struggles behind him.

The English defender cancelled Lautaro with disarming ease and restored some confidence to a defensive department that seems to have become the team’s Achilles heel in early 2022.

However, Alessio Romagnoli was forced off in the 25th minute of the first half due to groin issue but Pierre Kalulu came on and put in a confident display that we have now become used to. Matteo Gabbia is not the only alternative though, which will worry Pioli.

  1. Once again we prove we don’t need to buy more defenders, its our attack that is suffering.

    We need a strong 10, a proper one. Brahim is cool in the last few minutes off the bench. We also need a good RW, Saladmaker and Messias are just not it.

    We also need a striker in its prime or close to it. Giro/Ibra too old, Lazetic too young.

  2. I’m much happy seeing Tomori and Kalulu pairing so well too.

    This brings us to the basis that, we need just another confident defender just to rotate the team and also create depth.

    The only problem we are facing now is, the wings, AM, and striker. Rebic could have turned up for the striking position in the meantime but, he is so inconsistent.
    Salesmaker have so much to learn, and Messias is just a shadow of what we need.
    We also need a competition for Leao, should in case he gets tired or fame starts getting into his head.

    All in conclusion, we need good depth and not a crowded team
