Gennaro Gattuso is planning some changes to the XI and Nikola Kalinić is expected to start again.
After playing the same 11 for three consecutive matches, Gattuso is going to change some men in Sunday’s game against Genoa away from home.
According to Sky Italia yesterday and this morning’s La Gazzetta dello Sport, Patrick Cutrone will go back to the bench at the Luigi Ferraris with 30-year-old Kalinić being given the starting role.
The Croatian striker has been a huge disappointment so far, netting just four Serie A goals in 20 appearances, but he will be given trust once again, despite showing a glaring lack of confidence in front of goal in his last matches.
Sky also spoke of the possibility of using Fabio Borini in the place of Suso or Hakan Çalhanoğlu but Gazzetta expects the Spaniard and Turkish to start, although things will be a lot clearer after today’s training session.
In midfield, Lucas Biglia is expected to get a chance to catch his breath with ex-captain Riccardo Montolivo stepping in to the regista role. He would be flanked by Franck Kessié and Bonaventura.
