AC Milan host AS Roma at the San Siro tonight as Stefano Pioli needs to bounce back from the embarrassing 2-1 loss to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia as Roma reel from their 1-0 loss to Lazio too. The stadium is sold out and the pressure will be on.

The Rossoneri will play with two natural centre backs for the first time in a while as Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia both get the nod. This means Theo Hernandez returns to his natural left back position and can contribute more in the attacking phase.

Noah Okafor is continuing to recover and will be with the squad on the bench.

Yunus Musah getting dropped is the main piece of news after a poor performance in the humiliating loss in the Coppa Italia which brings Yacine Adli back into the starting line up. Olivier Giroud starts over Luka Jovic up front.

Expected Line Up (4-3-3): Maignan, Calabria, Kjaer, Gabbia, Hernandez, Loftus-Cheek, Adli, Reijnders, Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
