    Now it makes sense why he was so poor against N'castle.

    Yes, a lot of our young guys get hurt with overuse at those young ages. It's great they're good enough to play so young but it may hurt their long term health as their bodies are still growing and maturing.

    Musah is reportedly in line to return for Milan for their next Serie A match in a week against Empoli, though that would mean he misses a midweek Copa Itslia match.

    Ha svolto invece un lavoro personalizzato Yunus Musah che non sarà certamente a disposizione domani contro il Sassuolo: il centrocampista americano, out per un problema muscolare, punta a rientrare in casa dell'Empoli il 7 gennaio. Marco Pellegrino non sarà convocato per domani per motivi di gestione: si guarda al Cagliari in Coppa Italia. Okafor e Sportiello dovrebbero rientrare dopo l'Empoli.

    More encouragement from SempreMilan …

    “According to MilanNews, the team had training this morning and there were a couple of positive notes: both Matteo Gabbia and Yunus Musah did the entirety of the session with the rest of their team-mates.

    Both the centre-back and the central midfielder will therefore both be fully available for the away match on Sunday at 12:30 CET against Empoli at the Stadio Carlo Castellani, a game in which Milan will look to make it three wins in a row in league and cup.”

    {An earlier report said that Musah had resumed training individually.}

    After missing approximately 4 weeks, Musah returned to action today with a 20 minute appearance in a 3-0 win over Empoli on the road.

    Looked very solid in thr cameo. Many Milan fans actually felt the team missed Musah as they lacked someone who would cycle the ball in possession as needed

    Seemed a bit slow to react, not surprising due to his time off. But he is so strong on making a turn under pressure in the midfield; great to see. Looking forward to seeing him get a run of games now.

    SempreMilan projects a start for Musah in today's Coppa Italia match v Atalanta ...

    " Di Marzio reports that Pioli will not rotate as he did for the Cagliari game a week ago given the importance of the match. The formation chosen will be 4-3-3, which could also become 4-2-3-1 based on the position of Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
    ....
    In the middle of the field should be Loftus-Cheek joined by Tijjani Reijnders and Yunus Musah, with the USA international also ready to make a first start since coming back from a muscle problem.

    In attack, Christian Pulisic will be confirmed on the right, with Rafael Leao on the left and Luka Jovic should be the striker, with Olivier Giroud initially on the bench after playing a full 90 in Tuscany on Sunday.

    Predicted Milan XI (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez, Jimenez; Musah, Reijnders, Loftus-Cheek; Pulisic, Jovic, Rafael Leao.

    Yet he got a 7.5 on FotMob playing out of position, and was a lot better than the other wingback, who went 1/10 on duels and conceded the game-losing penalty. I think the 7.5 is ridiculous, but if we're looking for blame in this one - Jovic was terrible, Jimenez was completely unready, the formation decision was very questionable, and their defensive injury luck continues to be as bad as any good team has had this year.

    They nailed it too perfectly, and now they're out of the Cup.

    Oh Jiminez was bad. He looked good his last 2 appearances and was not good vs Atalanta. But hearing Musah's score was well beyond generous

    Disappointing but not surprising projection from SempreMilan …

    “In midfield, Yacine Adli will be back from the start and he will partner up with Ruben Loftus-Cheek as well as Tijjani Reijnders. The best trio for that department right now, one could argue, as Yunus Musah didn’t exactly impress against Atalanta mid-week.”

    I think we have to fault Pioli substantially for Musah’s two poorest showings: the disaster at right back some weeks ago and this past match. Just put your players in position to succeed.

    I hope Musah is 100% physically. He needs to step things up and produce next time out.

    In Pioli’s defense …

    “AC Milan lead Europe in a particular statistic, a report has revealed, but it is not necessarily one that you would want to be a leader in.

    As the CIES Football Observatory states, no other team in the ‘top five’ European leagues has used more players than Milan up to this point in the season.

    In total, the Rossoneri have played 32 different players which is ahead of four teams who are joint-second on 30: Newcastle, Granada, Real Betis and Sevilla.”

    This projection is also correct - Musah will begin on the bench today for Milan against Roma.
