As per the report, considering the difficulties encountered in the last few games, Pioli is ready to make the needed changes that he sees fit. His trusted 'soldier' Rade Krunic should start from the first minute against Sassuolo. He will be playing next to Sandro Tonali in midfield as Ismael Bennacer is disqualified.
In the attacking midfield area, an eye is on Belgian playmaker Charles De Ketelaere. The Belgian can play from the first minute in place of Brahim Diaz. Up front, Olivier Giroud should start once again while Davide Calabria and Theo Hernandez will be on the flanks as usual. Meanwhile, AC Milan director Paolo Maldini is reportedly thinking of this centre-forward from La Liga.
