The games continue to come thick and fast for AC Milan and they have another commitment on Sunday at lunchtime as they face Sampdoria at San Siro.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below) Mike Maignan will be in goal with Alessandro Florenzi expected to play over Davide Calabria at right-back, with the latter shifting over to the left side to cover for the suspended Theo Hernandez. The returning Fikayo Tomori and captain Alessio Romagnoli will be the centre-backs.
Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie expected to start in the double pivot with Ismael Bennacer therefore on the bench. In attack Olivier Giroud should be the striker supported by a trident of Alexis Saelemaekers on the right, Rafael Leao on the left and Brahim Diaz as the No.10.
