Empoli vs AC Milan team news

Empoli

Empoli picked up a point away at fellow strugglers Cagliari last time out. Neither side could find a breakthrough in a game that both teams would have been desperate to win, but a draw isn't a bad result for Empoli who stay about Cagliari by a single point.

Gabriele Guarino, Simone Bastoni and Giuseppe Pezzella are the three main injury concerns for Empoli this weekend, while Liberato Cacace will miss the game after picking up another yellow card in the draw with Cagliari.

Predicted Lineup: Caprile (GK), Luperto, Ebuehi, Ranocchia, Walukiewicz, Grassi, Kovalenko, Maleh, Caputo, Cambiaghi & Maldini 

AC Milan

AC Milan struggled somewhat at home to Sassuolo last weekend but managed to see their way to victory thanks to a second-half effort from former Chelsea midfielder, Christian Pulisic. The hosts could and probably should have won by more goals than they eventually did but the result was all that mattered at the end of the day.

Fikayo Tomori, Tommaso Pobega, Noah Okafor, Yunus Musah, Malick Thiaw, Pierre Kalulu and Marco Sportiello all miss the win over Sassuolo and look set to miss out this weekend through injury as well.

Predicted Lineup: Maignan (GK), Kjær, Florenzi, Calabria, Hernández, Loftus-Cheek, Bennacer, Pulišić, Reijnders, Giroud & Leão

Player to Watch: Christian Pulisic

AC Milan's American international midfielder is enjoying an impressive debut season in Serie A.

The former Chelsea man has scored six league goals, the second highest amount behind Olivier Giroud, as well as setting up four goals. We're backing Pulisic to put in another impressive display away at Empoli on Sunday, helping to guide AC Milan to another victory.
