Mike Maignan will start between the sticks, with Fikayo Tomori and Malick Thiaw taking the centre-back roles. Nonetheless, the source leaves a 30% chance for the experienced Simon Kjaer to start instead of the young German.
As usual, club captain Davide Calabria and Theo Hernandez will operate in the fullback roles, while Rade Krunic joins Sandro Tonali in the double pivot.
