Milan Defense Finally Whole For the First Time in Ages

After being undermanned for four months, the Milan defense has all his center-backs healthy and available. Marco Pellegrino and Pierre Kalulu were the first to go down in October. The thigh problems suffered by Malick Thiaw in late November and Fikayo Tomori in early December were particularly hurtful. Simon Kjaer also spent time on the sidelines with a strain, Tuttomercatoweb relays.

The Dane and the returning Matteo Gabbia carried the rearguard in January and February but also showed some cracks. The Rossoneri have conceded 14 goals in the last 10 matches, keeping just 3 clean sheets. The German talent has already started once since returning, while the others will resume doing it soon.

Milan are particularly glad to have Tomori back in the fold. He came off the bench late versus Lazio. He should see more minutes against Slavia Prague and be in the XI either in the Empoli match or the return leg in the Europa League.

The Englishman has been their top performer at the position. The Rossoneri have blanked the opponents in 9 out of 23 matches with him on the pitch, conceding 24 goals.

Our Take on the Milan Defense

It hasn’t been super stingy in the last couple of months but also wasn’t a massive problem. It’s obviously better to have all the pieces. It’ll be interesting to see how the hierarchy shakes out, as it could have big consequences for the future of Kjaer and Gabbia.
