AC Milan face Atalanta in Bergamo this evening as the side look to build momentum and fight their way back into the title race. Stefano Pioli will be aiming to make a statement after a shaky couple of weeks and will be keen to get a victory before their final Champions League fixture in the midweek.

Olivier Giroud will return from his two-game suspension and slot right into the starting line up replacing Luka Jovic. Theo Hernandez will remain as a makeshift centre back amidst the defensive crisis and will have a big task on his hands while Alessandro Florenzi keep his spot on the left.

Samuel Chukwueze remains as the right winger with Christian Pulisic on the left as Rafael Leao is not called up yet. Ismael Bennacer is expected to feature after he got his first minutes in over six months last time out.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Calabria, Tomori, Hernandez, Florenzi, Musah, Reijnders, Chukwueze, Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic, Giroud.
