Sarri Relying on Felipe Anderson & Luis Alberto to Impress for Lazio vs AC Milan

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri is relying on Felipe Anderson and Luis Alberto to be the creative outlets against AC Milan.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 62-year-old Italian coach wants the squad to be attacking and fast from the outset, using the quality and creativity of individual players to beat the Rossoneri at the San Siro on Sunday.

Both players have started the season well under the former Napoli and Juventus coach and will be looking to continue this progress on the weekend.
