Samuel Chukwueze Is Set To Start Against Newcastle

AC Milan will take on Newcastle in the first round of the Champions League group stage on Tuesday. Following the defeat against Inter, Stefano Pioli could make three changes to the starting XI.

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is said to be tinkering with his lineup with the possibility of handing Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze his first start in tomorrow’s UEFA Champions League tie against  Newcastle.

Milan will open their UCL account at the San Siro where they were roundly beaten by their neighbours Inter at the weekend.

According to Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, Pioli could make an additional two changes to the line-up.

Samuel Chukwueze is set to get his first start on the right flank, as Christian Pulisic needs some rest, and there could also be a change in midfield.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Rade Krunic, and Tijjani Reijnders have all been playing a lot at the start of this season and one of them will be rested, per the report. Pioli will likely give Tommaso Pobega or Yunus Musah a chance, therefore.

The Rossoneri will need to bounce back with a good display against the English side after the humiliation in the derby.

Fikayo Tomori will be back from his suspension and he will certainly play from the first minute, replacing Simon Kjaer.
