Players to Watch

Franck Kessie

The midfielder is set to return following some time off with a flu. He has been sorely missed this past week in the loss against Porto and the tight call with Bologna. Kessie is always noticeable when he is absent in the side as we get pushed around more, we miss the loose balls and lack some hold up play. This will be a very physical game as expected with Torino and having Kessie pushing us forward will be a massive help with Diaz still on the sideline.

Antonio Sanabria

He has 2 goals and 1 assist thus far this season and is bouncing off a very solid performance against Genoa this weekend. His confidence will be high and Milan are coming off a number of shaky games for the backline with 2 conceded against Hellas and Bologna as well as 1 against FC Porto. Sanabria has pace and plays well off Belotti drawing defenders in hence will be a major threat to us.

Olivier Giroud

The Frenchman is rumoured to start over Ibrahimovic in this one and it will be an exciting opportunity to see him play as he looked fitter in the previous game. What a header from him but what a save from Skorupski on Saturday. Milan are getting better at putting crosses into the box for the two tall strikers as Leao, Ballo-Toure and Calabria are hitting the mark but there is lots of room for improvement as Giroud can be deadly if he gets good service.

Prediction: Milan 3 - 1 Torino
