Milan injury crisis

Milan have an injury crisis on their hands for the trip to Sampdoria, missing the likes of Riccardo Montolivo, Davide Calabria and Luca Antonelli.

It kicks off on Sunday at 11.30 UK time (10.30 GMT), click here for a match preview.

Coach Vincenzo Montella will have to do without several players in similar roles, as Calabria and Antonelli have joined long-term absentee Andrea Conti on the treatment table.

Initially there were no recognisable right-wing-backs in the squad, so Fabio Borini was expected to take over the unusual role in their 3-5-2 system, but the club website later updated its list to include Ignazio Abate.

However, Gabriel Paletta is back in the side after he was frozen out seeking a summer transfer.

Riccardo Montolivo also missed out in midfield.

Milan squad for Sampdoria: A Donnarumma, G Donnarumma, Storari; Abate, Bonucci, Musacchio, Paletta, Rodriguez, Romagnoli, Zapata; Biglia, Bonaventura, Calhanoglu, Kessie, Locatelli, Mauri; Cutrone, Borini, Kalinic, Suso, Andre Silva
