Milan will have at least two new faces as they take on Newcastle United on Tuesday night in their Champions League debut. They’ll look to move on from the Derby drubbing. Samuel Chukwueze and Tommaso Pobega are favorites to start over Christian Pulisic and Tijjani Reijnders, Sky informs.

Stefano Pioli wants a more muscular midfielder for the bout against the Premier League outfit. The Italian youngster is likely to get the call over newcomer Yunus Musah because of his traits and better familiarity. He has played eight times continentally last season.

Instead, the turnover between the two right wingers has long been rumored. It will happen regularly in the upcoming games. Pulisic got off to a glorious start but struggled like the rest of his teammates in the Milan derby.

The Rossoneri announced that Mattia Caldara had surgery for a right ankle injury. He will miss at least three months. Despite his limited role, he was inserted into the UEFA list for technical reasons.

Our Take on the Milan Lineup

Rotating on the flanks is normal. The switch should have arguably occurred versus Inter, as Pulisic looked discombobulated after all the traveling. Instead, it’s odd that Pobega and not Musah is the first option off the pine in the midfield and that Reijnders, who seems less replaceable than Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Rade Krunic, is the odd man out.
