Lineups: Milan-Chievo
Milan must prove their crisis is over and welcome giant-killers Chievo, with familiar face Alberto Paloschi, to San Siro.
 
 
The Rossoneri ended their winless streak at the weekend, beating 10-man Sassuolo 2-1 with a late Luiz Adriano header, but the performance did little to silence critics.
 
Sinisa Mihajlovic is still under pressure and shoulders the responsibility of again picking 16-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma rather than Diego Lopez.
 
Mario Balotelli, Jeremy Menez and Mbaye Niang are still out injured, but Alessio Cerci gets the nod with prolific Carlos Bacca.
 
Chievo are only one point behind Milan in the standings and are coming off two unlucky defeats to Sampdoria and Napoli.
 
However, the Flying Donkeys have never won a League fixture at San Siro, managing just two points from 13 previous visits.
 
Home and away, Chievo have lost 13 of their last 15 encounters with the Diavolo and their most recent point here was 2-2 in March 2004.
 
Perparim Hetemaj and Federico Mattiello didn’t make the trip due to injury, but Paloschi starts and he’s no stranger.
 
The striker grew up in the Milan youth academy, scored for them on his Serie A debut at San Siro and was once tipped to be the next Pippo Inzaghi.
