I'm wondering how are we going to play, to utilize both him and Patrick? Rotation and alternate formation or switch to 4-4-2, 4-3-1-2 as our main formation?

Them having similar characteristics might be bad or work out very well. Having to chase 2 mad dogs won't be easy for any defense, especially with Suso and Conti delivering crosses. Paquetta on right flank will help too.

Piatek and Cutrone will create the Kouame-Piatek effect, but unfortunately neither of them is as talented on the ball from a passing perspective as Kouame is. I think we'll really suffer in our creativity if we play both of them together.

Piatek should be the starter as of now, with his capability of playing in a wide variety of attacking positions when off-the-ball (which Higuain didn't have). Paqueta, Calhanoglu, Suso and Conti are 4 major offensive threats that will stretch the defense, giving Piatek enough space.

Moving to 4-4-2 for the last 20 minutes when searching for a goal is a very valid option that we should continue to use. Cutrone as a supersub can be devastating.

Think we will go with 1 striker.

I hope Patrick won't be disappointed by this and pull a Locatelli. He seems more grounded and humble, but you never know...

I think they should at least rotate as starting striker for some games. Both have similar potential of scoring goals, just that Piatek got more playing time.

Lol, pull a Locatelli? If Higuain hadn't managed to bench him, let alone Piatek that is even lower in the pecking order.

To those who saw him play, how strong is he in buildup plays (like Higuain was supposed to be)?
Or just a poacher?

They've been playing under quite different circumstances in the last two seasons.
Cutrone has mostly been starting off the bench, or next to another conventional CF.
Piatek on the other hand formed an attacking duo with a pretty versatile attacker.
He won't find such luxury at Milan, because at Milan we prefer a forward duo to consist of two rather similar CFs who'll depend on the wizard trequartista behind them for the service. Ok, maybe it's not that rigid anymore post-Berlu, but if we were to partner the CF with a different type of player this time then the best options are Castillejo and Borini....
If you thought Cutrone was feeding off Higuain, then you'll have similar issues with Piatek, who very much fed off Kouame.

Those of you that think we got a proven lone striker as alternative to Cutrone...think again.

i think Cutrone is more Inzaghi-esque , Piatek has a better shot from medium distance

Piatek and Paulina are fast becoming some of my favourite people.. seems like such a nice, grounded pair who genuinely loves their life.

Piatek: “I am going back to the hotel now. I have a lot to do to arrange finding an apartment, but Paulina will help me. I can’t wait for my debut. I am very happy.”

They are far more similar to each other than anyone of them is to Inzaghi, but yeah Piatek fires off more shots from distance.
We might see Cutrone do that as well eventually, as he gains experience.

Hope he gets around 30-35 minutes. Suso feeding him with crosses will be very dangerous for Napoli

I think Cutrone is better in off ball movements and he will grow further in that before seeing a significant improvement in his weak aspects.

That, except physical strenght and stamina, in which i think he's already much better than last season.
