Milan are slowly shrugging off their selection problems once again as Ciprian Tatarusanu and Fikayo Tomori have both recovered from Covid-19 while Ante Rebic came off the bench to feature in the win at Venezia.
They come into the game against Genoa looking to make it three wins in three games across league and cup to begin 2022, having followed up the impressive victory over Roma with a positive performance and a clean sheet in Venice.
According to what is being reported by MilanNews, the probable starting XI includes Mike Maignan in goal and not Antonio Mirante or Tatarusanu, with the latter having only recovered from Covid-19 this morning. The defence in front of him should feature Pierre Kalulu at right-back, Matteo Gabbia and the returning Fikayo Tomori at centre-back and Theo Hernandez at left-back.
Sandro Tonali will get the nod in the double pivot as he is suspended for Monday’s game in the league against Spezia with Rade Krunic likely to partner him. Alexis Saelemaekers, Daniel Maldini and Rebic should be in the attacking trident behind Olivier Giroud, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended after his red card against Inter in the cup last season.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Gabbia, Tomori, Theo; Tonali, Krunic; Saelemaekers, Maldini, Rebic; Giroud.
Probable Genoa XI (3-5-2): Sirigu; Vanheusden, Bani, Ostigard; Ghiglione, Sturaro, Badelj, Rovella, Cambiaso; Caicedo, Pandev.
