Afriyie Acquah has been ruled out of Empoli’s crucial League game against AC Milan on Thursday.

The Ghanaian international who joined Empoli in the summer has been one of their standout players in the ongoing campaign.

The 27 year old picked up an injury in the defeat to Sassuolo on matchday five.

Acquah limped off as early in the 14th minute after a muscle problem.

The Blues are looking to bounce back from successive defeats as they welcome the former Italian Champions to the Stadio Carlo Castellani tonight.
