With the injuries to seemingly all of the first choice central defenders at Milan, will Gennaro Gattuso be forced into changing his formations yet again?

Last season under Gattuso, Milan went with a 4-3-3 and didn’t look back, not really changing styles or formations once settling on it.

This season has seen Milan go with a 4-3-3, a 4-4-2, and a 3-5-2, and with Higuain out for the next two games after getting suspended, along with all of the injuries, will Milan go to a 3-4-3 formation with Ricardo Rodriguez line up as a part of a back three?

It’s going to be a mess defensively against Lazio, but then again, when has it not been a mess defensively this season?
