In a familiar look after all of the shake up Gennaro Gattuso will most likely at this point retain the use of his favored 4-3-3. Patrick Cutrone should be starting up top in the wake of Gonzolo Higuians move to Chelsea with little time for new signing Krzysztof Piątek from Genoa to be integrated into the team. Really though who should start up top will be a topic of conversation the rest of the year. Milan now has two of the more talented young strikers in Europe with Piątek’s arrival, hopefully this is the start of something good with both of them putting the ball in the goal as Milan push on in the fight for a Champions League spot.
Even after a good win over Genoa on the road Monday the team still looked shaky especially at center back. Luckily our Captain returns to the back and the long awaited return on Matteo Musacchio should put the back line in its best place from a health perspective since the early fall.
All of this plus the imminent returns of Mattia Caldera and Lucas Bigila should put Milan in a better place soon after the months of injury chaos. The flashes of “Monaco Bakayoko” and return of Andrea Conti have made a coming healthy Milan a more formidable as reinforcements get healthy. There may be more additions coming before the Mercato is over but if the team can get healthy, and stay that way we should have the horses to get over the line and grab that 4th spot.
