Line-ups: Milan trident in Lecce

Milan have the Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Antonio Cassano trident for the lunchtime trip to Lecce.

The Rossoneri hope to continue their climb up the table after crushing Palermo 3-0 and finding consistency in the Champions League. This game kicks off at 11.30am UK time.

Massimiliano Allegri still has an injury crisis on his hands, missing Alexandre Pato, Thiago Silva, Gennaro Gattuso, Clarence Seedorf and Mathieu Flamini.

Ibrahimovic again partners Cassano, but this time with support from Robinho in an attacking trident.

Mario Yepes steps in for Thiago Silva at centre-back, while Massimo Ambrosini returns from a long injury lay-off.

Lecce have lost all their home games so far this season, but it's also true that Milan haven't conquered the Stadio Via del Mare since 2001.

The Salentini are without David Di Michele, Souleymane Diamoutene, Julio Sergio and Stefano Ferrario.

It means Benassi has to take over in goal, while former Milan men Rodney Strasser and Massimo Oddo line up.

Lecce: Benassi; Oddo, Tomovic, Esposito, Mesbah; Obodo, Strasser, Giacomazzi; Cuadrado, Grossmuller, Corvia

Milan: Abbiati; Abate, Yepes, Nesta, Antonini; Ambrosini, Nocerino, Van Bommel; Robinho; Cassano, Ibrahimovic
