Saelemakers was pretty crap vs Man U, maybe it would be good to start Samu this time.

Bench Leao and play Rebic if available.

Is Ben not ready for this game? Also, not sure how I feel abt metit starting over Tonali... pretty sure it makes Tonali look bad.

If Saelemaekers is healthy start him. Simple as that. Samu has to prove he is worthy enough to get that spot again. For me he can continue to mop up because he hasn't proven he can do much.

Once again yesterday I saw very little in both phases out of him. I know Goodfella believes he does good work defensively but I don't see it.

tbh, if we play with the same mentality against napoli, like we did against verona and manu, then everything is possible. The only problem is they have a few midgets upfront who are very quick and pacy, have to watch out as this most recent squad of ours is very physically strong, and therefore slower

We could keep the same that faced United, no 'wingers', no lonely strikers.. just two lines, and two moving strikers.

I remember a similar discussion after the first derby so I'm just going to quote the post where I uploaded 2 gifs of interceptions made by Samu in Inter's half that also lead to chances. He was only on the pitch for 20-30 mins iirc.

Huge tie for us. Make or break game for in-form subs.

I believe! We have kept Krunic basically in the shadows all season with some mediocre cameos, but he's suddenly emerged like this secret weapon. I think he might put in another important performance and possibly decide the game.

Meite and Dalot too.

I'm interested in seeing how fit Theo and Hakan are. We were very impotent in attack on Thursday and we need some of our weapons back. I'm really worried that Hakan is still having lingering covid effects. He hasn't been the same since he got it.

After this game we get 5 decent opponents in Serie A. With everybody coming back from injuries. This game could set us up for a final sprint.

Yup. A draw is a not a bad result, but something tells me we're winning. After some confusion and losses the squad seems to regain its confidence, even without the starters. Tonalis statements is an indicator.

Pioli says Theo, Hakan and Rebic have all recovered for the game. Romagnoli and Calabria doubts.

Mandzukic, Bennacer and Zlatan by next week. Probably after the intl break, i'd surmise.

I usually defer to your judgement and commentary as I respect it very much. This game was a long time ago though. For much of the start of the season and last year I was fine with him platooning as I thought it was a slow start but had no issue with his and Alexis' pressing.

As I have watched him lately I don't see that effectiveness. I am not sure if it's that I'm absolutely disgusted with his offensive play and tune him out or that he isn't pressing the same way now that he isn't the first choice. That's why after your comments I decided to watch him carefully in Manchester.

If you can point to games lately where he was effective then I might reconsider.

I don't think Rrahmani is playing, and Pioli hinted that Tonali will start.

Tomori vs Osimhen would be nice, a good match for us. Would have been more worried if it was Kjaer/Romagnoli against him. Very annoyed that Calabria isn't playing. He's really developed into such a great RB for us, his mentality has been superb and he's been very consistent. Dalot has played ok at LB but has been a disaster everytime he played at RB. I think Kalulu should start, but maybe Dalot has a bit more experience and will be preferred to make sure Insigne doesn't exploit that side. I don't agree, but I can see Pioli taking that decision.

Hopefully we start with Rebic on the left, or even maybe Leao rotation with him throughout the game. Pioli mentioned that Rebic is back training with the squad, so hopefully he can start ahead of Krunic. Hakan is back also so that's great, but he needs to play without pressure. He seems to have reverted back to the nervous player he was pre-2020.
