Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen won’t be the only player making his Milanese derby debut tonight against AC Milan, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how the 27-year-old Dane is set to make his Milanese derby debut tonight against the Rossoneri, after arriving from Premier League side Tottenham last month. Eriksen will either start behind striker Romelu Lukaku or start on the bench, although it’s likely that Conte will deploy him in the second half.
Another playing set to make his Milanese derby debut is former Manchester United full back Ashley Young, the report continues. The Englishman has played a lot of derby games prior in his career for the Red Devils, and so his experience may be invaluable tonight. Italian shot stopper Daniele Padelli will make his Milanese derby debut tonight due to the injury to captain Samir Handanovic.
There are a few more players who are less likely to make their debut tonight, the report highlights. Victor Moses and Cristiano Biraghi are both set to start on the bench later and aren’t likely to be brought on by Conte. Sebastiano Esposito could also make a brief debut.
