Line-ups: Milan-Sassuolo

Milan start 16-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in a must-win game against their bête noir Sassuolo.

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, follow the build-up and action from this match, Juventus-Atalanta and Udinese-Frosinone on our LIVEBLOG.

Sinisa Mihajlovic is already under huge pressure following a string of disappointing results that leave them 13th in the Serie A table.

The Coach makes a very risky decision by dropping ex-Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez in favour of Donnarumma, who is 16 years and eight months old.

He becomes the youngest ever shot-stopper to start a Serie A match and it’s his first competitive appearance for the club at senior level.

Mario Balotelli, Mbaye Niang and Jeremy Menez are injured, while Carlos Bacca and Andrea Bertolacci are not 100 per cent fit, but the Colombian does start in a new trident.

Donnarumma certainly doesn’t have a simple fixture to start with, as the Milan ultras already announced they will stage a protest at San Siro and Sassuolo have a remarkable record against them.

Home and away, the Neroverdi have won three out of four Serie A meetings, with Domenico Berardi scoring seven goals.

Luca Antei is the only injury absentee, as Gregoire Defrel and Antonio Floro Flores complete the trident.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s side went into this weekend in fourth place thanks to four victories, three draws and only one loss.

Milan: Donnarumma; Abate, Alex, Romagnoli, Antonelli; Kucka, Montolivo, Poli; Cerci, Bacca, Bonaventura

Sassuolo: Consigli; Vrsaljko, Cannavaro, Acerbi, Peluso; Laribi, Magnanelli, Missiroli; Berardi, Defrel, Floro Flores
