Keisuke Honda is speculated as set for a start for Milan against Lazio tomorrow evening, but Adel Taarabt will remain on the bench.
With the Rossoneri searching for a positive result to turnaround recent form and ease pressure on Coach Clarence Seedorf, the Dutchman is reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport as set to give Honda another run from the first minute.
The 27-year-old has dropped to the bench recently, with his no-show from the bench last weekend against Parma seen as evidence that he has so far failed to convince.
It is understood that Honda will start in attack for the Diavolo against Lazio on Sunday evening, alongside most likely Ricky Kaka and Andrea Poli and one from Giampaolo Pazzini and Mario Balotelli.
Adel Taarabt, on from being dropped after the Champions League second leg defeat to Atletico Madrid, however, is seen as set to remain benched against the Aquile.
