AC Milan travel to face Empoli in the very early kick off on Sunday. The Rossoneri are coming off a big win in the Coppa Italia and a hard fought victory over Sassuolo in the league. Stefano Pioli’s side have struggled against the weaker sides in the league as evidence with the 2-2 draws with Salernitana and Lecce.
The manager will revert to his usual eleven hence will not be rewarding Luka Jovic for his recent form nor Jan-Carlo Simic for his big start to life in the senior team. Veterans Simon Kjaer and Olivier Giroud get the nod alongside Alessandro Florenzi too. Yacine Adli will start again as Ismael Bennacer has left for AFCON and Yunus Musah is not fully fit to start yet.
Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Calabria, Kjaer, Hernandez, Florenzi, Reijnders, Adli, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao, Giroud.
