The injuries are near crippling for Milan at the moment with multiple starters out for extended periods of time and to top it all off Gonzalo Higuain is still serving on his suspension from the Juventus game. Milan got a scare mid-week when they went down 2–1 at home to Dudelange before a quick succession of goals gave the Rossoneri a lead and ended in a 5–2 rout.
There have been tons of rumors about who will join the team in January with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Denis Saurez, and Cesc Fabregas among the names being tossed around, along with the already agreed deal for Lucas Paqueta who is supposed to arrive in Milan in the next few weeks from Brazil. He should be an exciting player who will celebrate with “jubilation” when he scores.
Q: Will you perform dancing jubilation after a goal in Italy?— TheMilanBible (@TheMilanBible) November 30, 2018
Paquetà: "While I score, I’m always very happy, I always dance with jubilation. I will not make any difference in Italy. We'll see if someone will come to my side to do some ballet [laughs]”. pic.twitter.com/wjRH70c4vK
Sunday the starters will be different because of the injuries with predictions that Rino Gattuso will go with a 3-4-3 and have Ignazio Abate, Christian Zapata, and Fabio Borini starting. He also may end up going with the frequently used 4-3-3 and give the start to Jose Mauri. Both Tiémoué Bakayoko and Patrick Cutrone picked up knocks in the Dudelange game but will be available this weekend. The boys need to pull one out and keep us on pace to achieve the season goals. The injuries make this a very challenging task but if the team responds like they did last Wednesday they should be able to get it done against Parma.
