Matias Fernandez is close to returning to action while the situations of Luca Antonelli and Davide Calabria will be monitored for the Pescara game.

After 10 rounds of football, Milan find themselves in 4th place, five points off leaders Juventus – who they beat at Stadio San Siro on Saturday night.

The Rossoneri have done fairly well so far this season but one glaring problem has been the lack of depth in the squad of coach Vincenzo Montella and this is partly due to the fact that many players have been suffering from long-term injuries. One of those players is summer signing Matias Fernandez.

The Chilean joined the Rossoneri on the last day of the market on loan from Fiorentina but picked up a thigh injury on international duty, before even training with Milan for the first time. Today, however, as reported by acmilan.com, the 30-year-old, who was also wanted by Cagliari, received a round of applause from his teammates as he took part in the first part of the session with the rest of the fold.

Antonelli meanwhile continued his personalized work in today’s session and it remains to be seen if he – and Calabria – will be available for the next match against Pescara (Sunday, 15:00 CET). With Gabriel Paletta suspended, someone else will have to play alongside Romagnoli. It will most likely be Gustavo Gomez, who today along with R. Ely trained with the assistant coach Daniele Russo.

Probable XI (via GdS): Gianluigi Donnarumma; Ignazio Abate, Gustavo Gomez, Alessio Romagnoli, Mattia De Sciglio; Juraj Kucka, Manuel Locatelli, Jack Bonaventura; Suso, Carlos Bacca, M’Baye Niang.

If even sosa cant make it into starting lineup then i think it will be hard for mati to be a starter.
Also, what happened to ely? I hope he wont be another digao

We seriously need to get our sh*t together, Mati and Sosa should be competing for that starting spot!
I’m looking forward to seeing a Gomez and Romagnoli partnership, could be interesting!

Milan fan since 94

Tbh I think gomez and roma will eventually make a better duo than roma and pala ..everything happens for a reason ! ..just look at loca!

Milan10

Yeah mate, gomez – romagnoli partnership would be interesting. To the salivating strikers of opposite teams at least. I think gomez needs to be loaned out to serie a minions so he can learn and adapt to the league. He’s clearly not suited to serie a gameplay yet.
As for mati the old injury prone fiorentina reserve, as much as i hate saying it, milan needs to send him back to his club and buy serious players in january.

Heisenberg

Spot on bro! You’re correct about Gomez and Mati. That’s exactly what needs to be done in January. For now let’s just try to win our next two matches first.

welly pan

Ac milan can play 3-4-3 & 3-5-2. Abate & sciglio in back wing. Roma, pala, gomez in central defender. Mati, kuco, alessio in middle. Suso, bacca, niang in front. Hopes thiago silva would join milan in free transfer. And hopes milan would buy daniele rugani .so in back defender milan are very good. Alessio, thiago, rugani. In wing we have abate sciglio, suso, hashim mastour. Hell yeah . With mastour, i can make 3-4-1-2 when defense & 3-3-4 when attacking. Prospect player to buy in january = thiago silva and daniele rugani, ngolo kante. Prospect player to call back =… Read more »

Is this the first time romagnoli and gomes will partner together this season???

montella

Ely romagnoli Gomez to start in pescara match

ck

Last season, miha started ely against Fiorentina and napoli. He is worse than Zapata. Zapata has pace and is powerful though he is a time bomb. Ely has nothing except the ability to he a time bomb. He got sent off early against Fiorentina if I am not mistaken

Jibola

We need Zapata fit early even though he’s an accident waiting to happen, he’s better at this point than Gomez who is yet to understand Serie A. Montella only needs quality bench to take this team up and its non existent now.

I believe Mati is better if he’s fit and will help Milan in some little ways.

saheed

welcome back to our team forza fernandes and calarabia forza milan

Rashad

The takeover should be fast.we need to track players for a better milan
