RW Bonaventura

I get the feeling the time has come for Suso to move away from the RW position because defenders know how to deal with him now. He never plays outside of the foot and hardly ever uses his right foot, so perhaps he should move to the left wing and send in his inward curved crosses and perhaps he would combine well with Theo. I also think that for this particular match a player like Mario Rui would be able to keep up with Suso, whereas Hysaj would probably face more difficulty.

The reason why teams with overlapping fullbacks tend to play with an inside forward is to force defenders to defend both in and out. If you know that both players prefer to go outside then that makes your defending choices far easier. If there's both a threat that the winger can cut inside as well as pass to an overlapping defender then you have a harder choice to make.

The best thing is to have a more versatile winger that can do both obviously, but what Suso can do with his left is so good that most managers can excuse his lack of ability to go around defenders on the outside (although in the past two years he has been getting a lot better at this).

Suso's problem isn't that he needs to shift away from the right side. His problem is that he slows our game down a lot when he's not exactly in that perfect spot at the corner of the area. He can't run with the ball for very long without defenders catching up with him, and once he's doubled up on he doesn't have a plan B.

I’d like one real winger instead of Suso or hakan.
This would give us tactically more options.
With two players cutting inside without the proper midfielders who can cover the space...we will get lost from time to time.

But I agree, Deulofeu would actually lift this team up right now. Him and Theo running up and down the flanks would make us an actual counter threat for a change. Dude also only cost Watford a measly 13 mil

Watford's probable relegation from the Premier League could turn out to be a blessing in disguise for us. Deulofeu could sign for a cut price (€15m)?

Yup. Moving Suso to the left flank would take away what he's good at while adding nothing.

I think Suso has a pretty good idea of how to play, but laziness, comfortableness in cutting in all the time, lack of athleticism, and stretching 60 mins of football into 90 mins explains his performances.

Way to late, we would need him now. Next summer I'd hope we'd aim higher for a better RW than that.

No offence to Deulofeu - better than current Suso but we need to aim higher.

Ibra still could do a lot of good for Milan. He is a leader, a champion and can score goals out of the blue. Deulofeu only plays for himself and has failed at every club he’s ever turned out for - maybe except for 6 mediocre months at Milan.

Biglia and Rebic could replace the suspended Bennacer and Calhanoglu against Napoli [Sky]

Rebic needs to get a couple of 90min games before we can dish him out. Bakayoko was shit at the beginning of last season as well and then he blossomed.

True, I think he can provide some of the hustle and physical prowess we have been lacking.

Milan 1 - 1 Napoli
Lozano 23 (N), Bonaventura 28 (M)
Stadio San Siro

Giacomo Bonaventura’s scorcher earned Milan a point, but Napoli had more possession and scoring opportunities at San Siro in a draw that pleases nobody.

These were the two sides whose tallies were worse off compared to last season, as Napoli were on 19 points (28 by this stage in 2018-19) and Milan 13 (21). The Rossoneri were scrabbling in the bottom half of the table after losing three of their previous four games, with Hakan Calhanoglu and Ismael Bennacer suspended. Suso pulled out in the warm-up, so with Samu Castillejo, Fabio Borini, Leo Duarte and Ricardo Rodriguez injured, Ante Rebic stepped in.

The Partenopei were tearing themselves apart after the squad refused to go into a training retreat, prompting the club to order a press silence and threaten huge fines. Arkadiusz Milik, Mario Rui, Faouzi Ghoulam and Kevin Malcuit were injured, but Lorenzo Insigne was returned to a forward role rather than on the left wing.

It was a very aggressive start from the hosts and Alex Meret got his fingertips to a Rebic cross, taking it away from Jack Bonaventura sliding in at the back post.

Alessio Romagnoli’s header from a corner was straight at Meret, but it was Napoli who took the lead with their first genuine foray forward.

Insigne’s curler from the D bounced off the crossbar and Chucky Lozano was quickest to react, nodding in the rebound at the near post.

However, it lasted for only five minutes, as Jack Bonaventura hit a screamer into the far top corner from the edge of the box and there was little Meret could do about it. This was his first Serie A goal since October 2018 and marked the end of the injury nightmare.

Napoli should’ve gone 2-1 up moments later, but Jose Callejon fired wide after Lucas Paqueta’s poor midfield pass sparked the counter.

Elseid Hysaj was fortunate not to score a bizarre own goal, as he fell on to a low Theo Hernandez cross from the left and could only watch as the ball dribbled millimetres past the post.

Rade Krunic showed great vision to spot the Rebic run at the back post, but the Croatian misjudged the flight of the pass and scuffed his header wide.

Insigne thought he’d scored on the stroke of half-time when the offside trap failed, but Gianluigi Donnarumma rushed off his line to block the finish with his legs, one-on-one.

Rebic had a knock to the knee in the first half and made way for Franck Kessie during the break. Kalidou Koulibaly’s overhead kick from a corner was not far off target at all, while Insigne wasted a promising chance by turning wide at the near post.

Mateo Musacchio had to make a perfect sliding tackle on Lozano as the Mexico international was sprinting into the penalty area, but Insigne went off following a knock to the elbow.

Eljif Elmas completely wasted a great chance after Lucas Biglia’s error sent him clear, as he tried to draw a foul from Donnarumma and was instead quite rightly booked for simulation.

Theo Hernandez managed to excellent pull-backs from the left in the space of three minutes, but both times Koulibaly was there to clean up, above all with his block on Piatek’s tap-in.

Allan tested Donnarumma both at the near post and with a volley from the edge of the area.
