Stefano Pioli looks set to run with the line up he fielded in AC Milan's friendly victory over Rhodense against Sampdoria on Monday. The manager will be looking to an ultra-attacking 4-3-3 formation with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lucas Paqueta replacing Piatek and Kessie at striker and left midfield respectively.

The move looks to add creativity and technical ability into the squad that will be looking for an immediate response after the Atalanta debacle. Milan currently sit in 11th place with only 21 points from 17 games.
