Coming off the back of a 2-1 home defeat against Lazio, Milan have so far acquired just 13 points in the standings: four wins, a draw and six losses. Since Stefano Pioli's arrival on the bench (in place of Marco Giampaolo), the Rossoneri have won just one match (Spal), drawn another (Lecce), and have lost the rest (Roma and Lazio).
The Rossoneri's top-scorer is Piatek with three goals (he is also the first choice penalty taker, alternating with Kessié), followed by Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez with two goals. The latter is undoubtedly the new face of Milan who until now, has had the biggest impact at the club. The Frenchman, born in 1997, arrived in the summer from Real Madrid after spending the previous season on loan to Real Sociedad. He is a left-back that boasts great excelleration and also has a flair for goals, as shown by the two he has already scored for his club. In the last few fixtures, the Algerian Bennacer (who Africa Cup of Nations in the summer), has been getting more game time alongside Krunic.
Practically guaranteed to be between the posts is Donnarumma: the Milan goalkeeper has played every game except for the away match at Marassi against Genoa, where Reina saved a decisive last-minute penalty. In defence, Romagnoli is the star, as well as captain, and he is in his fifth consecutive season at the club.
