Picking the Best Potential AC Milan Lineup to Face Atalanta on Saturday

​AC Milan host Atalanta at San Siro on Saturday evening, and a win for the home side would see them leapfrog their opponents into seventh position.


Here is the best potential lineup for the match.

Goalkeeper

  • G. Donnarumma

​Still only 18-years young, Gianluigi Donnarumma continues to gain admirers from all around the world with each passing game - although some of ​his club's own fans are less than enthused.


Despite only keeping four clean sheets in the league this season, Donnarumma is still regarded as Italy's next number one.

Defence

​After picking up his fifth yellow card against at Hellas Verona last weekend, Alessio Romagnoli is suspended. The man that will likely step into his place is ex-Villarreal man Mateo Musacchio. 


The Argentine has not featured as much as he would have liked this season, with only ten appearances in the league so far. This weekend's game against Atalanta will be tough, however if Musacchio is to perform well, he could well find himself as a regular starter in the not so distant future.

Midfield

  • Kessie
    Kessie79
  • Montolivo
    Montolivo18
  • Bonaventura

Despite their league position, the trio in midfield have been very good this season. Both Franck Kessie and Giacomo Bonaventura have chipped in with goals and assists this campaign.


Veteran midfielder Riccardo Montolivo will be the most defensive of the three in midfield and will look to break up play and start counter attacks when possible.​

  • Borini

Due to the suspension of star man Suso, the front three of ​Milan are in need of a reshuffle. Former Bayer Leverkusen man Hakan Calhanoglu is likely to replace Suso.


Ex-​Sunderland man Fabio Borini's move to Milan in the summer came as somewhat as a surprise to many. The Italian is yet to score for his new side, and will be looking to get off the mark come Saturday.
