Davide Calabria seems likely to miss out of the London encounter and Gennaro Gattuso is considering to play Cristian Zapata as right back on Thursday.
Calabria struggled a lot against Arsenal in the first leg but overall he has been one of the better performers since Rino Gattuso took over, playing the best football in his short career and establishing himself as the starting right back of the Rossoneri.
It seems, however, that Calabria won’t get a chance to get personal revenge against the Gunners, as according to Milannews.it the 21-year-old is suffering from muscle fatigue and is in big doubt for the match at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday (21:05 CET kickoff).
Sky Italia’s Manuele Baiocchini reported earlier today that Calabria did not take part in today’s training session and since Ignazio Abate is out too, Gattuso tested center back Cristian Zapata in his place. The Colombian has hardly featured this season but could start in this important match-up.
Gianluigi Donnarumma is also suffering from a slight injury to his finger in his right hand, but he should be ready to play. Milan lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the first leg at Stadio San Siro last week.
