Picking the Best Potential AC Milan Lineup to Face Udinese on Sunday

​After a heavy defeat to Lazio last week, AC Milan will be looking to bounce back in the league after they breezed past Austria Wien 5-1 in the Europa League on Thursday. 


While they are still attempting to launch a title bid, they have dropped down to seventh, but are still well within the top teams and will stay in touch should they come away with a home win against Udinese on Sunday.


Here's the team that will be hunting those points.

Goalkeeper

  • A. Donnarumma
    A. Donnarumma90

​After some transfer controversy during the summer window, Gianluigi Donnarumma has reaffirmed his place in the No.1 shirt and he too will be looking for an improved performance after the Lazio loss.

Defence

  • Romagnoli
    Romagnoli13
  • Bonucci
    Bonucci19
  • Musacchio
    Musacchio22

​After enjoying the success of three at the back once again against Austria Wien boss Vincenzo Montella will continue to utilise the formation. 


Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli will keep their places at the back with the more experienced Mateo Musacchio coming in for Cristian Zapata after a strong display in the final moments of the Europa League match.

Midfield

  • Abate
    Abate20
  • Kessie
    Kessie79
  • Biglia
    Biglia21
  • Rodríguez
    Rodríguez68

With ​Andrea Conti being ruled out for six months after damaging the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, Ignazio Abate will take his place in the right-wing-back role.


Ricardo Rodríguez will move slightly up the pitch to left-wing-back, leaving Franck Kessie and Lucas Biglia holding the centre of the midfield.

Forwards

  • Suso
    Suso8
  • Cutrone
    Cutrone63
  • Calhanoglu
    Calhanoglu10

​After Suso was subbed on just after the hour mark and then scoring a minute later in their last match, he will start on the right hand side of the midfield attack just behind the lone attacker. 


Hakan Calhanoglu also managed to score during the humiliation of Austria Wein which will ensure he keeps his place partnering Suso on the left side of the attack. 


Nikola Kalinic had his chance to perform after starting over Patrick Cutrone in the Europa League but after failing to score Milan are likely to return to the young prodigy.
