Giovani Lo Celso came in to replace him in the starting XI, and did exceptionally well, scoring two goals in 3 starts.
He too has picked up a knock, missing the last game and remains a doubt for the next game too.
Kulusevski has played as a number 10 in the last two games and has put in man of the match performances.
But the update from O Keefe suggests that Maddison’s return is not too far away.
