Sky are reporting that Giampaolo will switch to a 4-3-3 from the start against Torino moving further away from his prized 4-3-1-2 formation. The manager is also expected to make three changes to the line-up from the derby: Calabria for Conti at RB, Hernandez for Rodriguez at LB and Bennacer for Biglia at CM.

There are conflicting reports on the make-up of the attacking trident. Sky is reporting that Leao would start as either the LW or ST. The attack would be dynamic as a front three however Giampaolo would be shifting away from his philosophy. The Torino game is critical for Milan as a strong reply is needed after the derby loss.
