We'll win this 2-1. Gonzalo, Hakan, and then a defensive error which allows Callejon a goal.
Hakan is suspended?

We're Lucky that the game is played in Palermo. I give us a good chance at a good result. (Which would be at least 1 pt)
Really curious about our starting XI

That's gonna be the team most probably. Unless Laxalt or Samu impress and take the LW spot and push Bakayoko to the bench.

Points will be my number one concern this season. Points points points. We have to win every match where we're the favourites, and clinch more than a couple of the difficult h2h. Two derby wins would be absolutely awesome.

We really are underdogs this season. If everything falls into place we're 3rd. If we start fucking up and have to change coach as usual then we're out of the race I think.

Just read Bonaventura is favourite for LW this week and Castillejo is also in the running. Personally I’d love to see Samu start but not for this game, too soon and not enough time to build chemistry with the team. If we need a spark off the bench it’ll be nice to see him.

Has to be a hat-trick of uncelebrated goals from our Gonzalo. It's written in the stars

I agree with you

The spark you mention are exactly what Samu and Laxalt give to our team...we missed that so bad....

But Bakayoko as our only midfield signing was bad business from leo...

I honestly have a good feeling about that midfield, and i think Biglia will find his Lazio form this season.

He is being paired with two tanks now, that will surely take some of the pressure off.

My hope is that Samu impresses and pushes Jack out of the first 11, i can't stand his fucking stupid runs with his head down, crossing & passing to absolutely nobody except the position.

Kessie - Biglia - Bakayoko
Suso - Higuain - Samu

This could be a lethal attack & midfield if everybody performs up to their best. Also it would work better if Gattuso would actually tell the players to pass into space on the wings, something we rarely do.

Sure they all do. A bit of panache would be preferable, but even for tap-ins one has got to read the game and get into a good position, innit? Superpippo and all that. No point in having balls whizzing just in front of the goal if no one's there to nudge it in.

Goes for Andre Silva, Bacca or Gonzalo (who is not above the tap-in goal from 5m in addition to more spectacular efforts), but for me the important thing is that they score for us!

We don't need creativity in the midfield to win games. But Gattuso has to speed up our play. Let Biglia sit and dictate and let Kessie and Baka loose. They are physical and can run, and we can completely bully teams with them on the field. We really need to see higher pressure this season, and play quicker offensively. Harass opponents in midfield, play the ball to the wings QUICKLY, and get balls in the box.

I'm not saying we are completely similar, but there are free flowing attaching teams like Liverpool and Monaco from two seasons back who score goals at will with not much midfield creativity. You have to create turnovers and move the ball quickly, but I think we can set our midfield up like that. If we play the same slow paced Milan style we've seen for years now, teams will fall deep and we won't break them down enough. Gattuso changed it after montella and had Jack and Kessie running the channels well, and we created a lot of chances last season. All our creativity is in our wingers. Gotta keep that mentality and improve on it. One things for sure, we shouldn't be losing any midfield battles from here out

.@cmdotcom reports that Caldara could start along with Romagnoli in defence when Milan face Napoli on Saturday even though Gattuso was heading towards starting Musacchio against Genoa.
