AC Milan are scheduled to face Empoli today and given the right schedule, Stefano Pioli is expected to make some changes to the starting XI. However, he has learned from the mistake made against Monza.

Milan bounced back with an important win against Lazio last weekend and will be aiming to put pressure on Juventus again, now just one point behind. Some changes are expected to the XI, as per Gazzetta dello Sport, with Noah Okafor replacing the suspended Rafael Leao and more.

As opposed to the game against Monza, when Pioli changed all of the forwards, he looks set to keep Christian Pulisic on the right flank for the balance. Samuel Chukwueze is eager to prove his qualities but he has not impressed and Milan are not in a position to take risks.

The post-match headlines, in the event of a defeat, would be brutal for Pioli in case he does decide to change all of the forwards. This is not likely to happen, therefore, and Pulisic is also beaming after his goal against Slavia Praha (although it was a tap-in).

Having said that, it is likely that we will see Chukwueze off the bench as Milan need to start seeing some return on their investment.
