Suso is fully recovered and is ready to play from the first minute against Palermo with Deulofeu and Bacca.

The Spaniard trained normally with the squad in the last few days and according to Mediaset Premium and Sky Italia, he will play from the start in the next match, instead of Lucas Ocampos.

Suso suffered a left thigh biceps femoris injury last month but on Sunday (15:00 CET kickoff at Stadio San Siro) he will make his return to the squad and to the starting XI and will most likely play with Gerard Deulofeu and Carlos Bacca in the 4-3-3 of coach Vincenzo Montella.

Sky also reports that Mattia De Sciglio will return to the XI with one of Davide Calabria and Leonel Vangioni playing on his opposing side in defense. It’s also said that Jose Sosa will be the regista with Juraj Kucka on his side and one of Mario Pasalic and Matias Fernandez in the other midfield position.

Milan have to beat Palermo in order to keep the chances to make it to the Europa League alive. The Rossoneri are currently in 7th place, one point behind Inter, who they face later this month

Good to see Suso and Kucka back. And MDS also coming back.
Should start Calabria as RB and MDS as LB imo.
But why on earth won’t Loca get start and Pasalic might?
Especially Kucka will be vital for the last 8 matches. I cannot think of a single game where we actually managed to control the midfield when he was not playing.

Our 3rd midfielder is always so weak whether it’s Fernandez, Pasalic or bertolacci. It’s almost like we play with a man down because they are so useless. Play locatelli and sosa together with kucka, or play a two man midfield with Sosa and kucka and suso as a number 10 with del and Ocamp on the flanks

Talk about weak. Ocampos dosen’t contribute to anything. Might as well have Lapadula on the wing.

Fake news! Montella will play Ocampus instead and once again, there will be no Bacca and Lapadula together upfront. Smh

Comment:if its possibel we can play kuco/gomez as DMF while sosa pairs him for passes and suso n del from flanks bacca n lapa upfront we need goals and yet we need to defend while attacking kuco, loca n gomez are good at that as DMFs just pair a good passer, sosa is the only one i know that passes well we can have suso n del handling d job at the flanks but need to do more of passing not holding balls for too long lapa at right bacca on the left. I PREFER 10% HONDA TO 200% OCAMPOS… Read more »

hahaha good one. But actually no. Depends how you use it. Same one can be watched as 3-4-3 with a same set of players. We don’t use cdm anyway so we can play Gomez instead of it. He loves to advance forward and in this formation that could be his chance.
And yes I did this for fun, but believe me, that 4-3-3 that we used with Kucka.Loca,Pasalic is something better to use against Barcelona to stop being PSGd.
Btw Barca is a fraud team and I pretty much hate them
