AC Milan will take on Roma in front of a sold-out San Siro on Sunday evening, hoping to bounce back with a strong performance. Compared to the mid-week clash, Stefano Pioli is expected to make a few changes to the XI.

Milan got knocked out of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday and will thus have to focus on the league, as well as the Europa League, moving forward. A strong display is needed tomorrow to raise the confidence, as well as cement third place in the league standings.

According to MilanNews, Theo Hernandez will be back on the left-hand side of the defence after playing many games as a centre-back. Matteo Gabbia and Simon Kjaer will be the starting centre-backs, as a result, and this will hopefully allow the Frenchman to use his best qualities.

Yacine Adli got a bit of rest against Atalanta and will be back from the first minute tomorrow evening, hoping to convince Pioli in the No.6 role. He will team up with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tijjani Reijnders, making for a solid midfield.

Luka Jovic failed to impress mid-week and will be on the bench, with Olivier Giroud completing the attacking trio this time out.

Probable Milan XI (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Gabbia, Hernandez; Loftus-Cheek, Adli, Reijnders; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
