Pirlo's Juventus revert to three?

Andrea Pirlo is reportedly planning a return to the three-man defence at Juventus, potentially with Alex Sandro and Danilo in more central roles.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pirlo is open to switching back to the system that had proved so successful under Antonio Conte and at times also Max Allegri.

Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system didn’t work as well as it could’ve done, especially at the back, where the Bianconeri conceded a massive 43 Serie A goals.

Chiellini only nine-Scudetto man for Juve

Giorgio Chiellini is the only player to have featured in each of the nine consecutive title-winning Juventus seasons.

The centre-back is out injured at the moment, but his contribution to the record-breaking run is undeniable.

Since the domination of Serie A began in 2011-12, Chiellini is the only man to have registered at least one league appearance in each of those campaigns.

That’s because Andrea Barzagli retired last summer, while Leonardo Bonucci spent a season at Milan and Gianluigi Buffon had a spell with Paris Saint-Germain.

“Caputo, Boga, Berardi and Locatelli won’t be sold,” he told Tuttosport.

Sarri: 'Consistency is key'

Chiellini and Alex Sandro back in training

There is some good news for Juventus, as while Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt are suspended against Milan, Alex Sandro and Giorgio Chiellini return to training.

The Bianconeri are now seven points clear at the top of the Serie A table and take on Milan on Tuesday.

Dybala and De Ligt picked up yellow cards in the 4-1 win over Torino and are therefore suspended for the next round.

This would in theory leave only Daniele Rugani available to fill in at centre-back, but there might be time for Chiellini to make his return.
