Line-ups: Udinese-Milan

Both Milan and Udinese make surprising changes for this afternoon’s showdown, as there are new attacking options.

The pressure is piling on both clubs, as Massimiliano Allegri is hanging by a thread and Francesco Guidolin’s Friulani are yet to win a single game this season.

Riccardo Montolivo returns from a thigh strain, but the Rossoneri are still without Robinho, Alexandre Pato, Mathieu Flamini, Mario Yepes, Sulley Muntari, Didac Vila and Rodney Strasser.

Kevin-Prince Boateng is dropped after recent poor performances, making way for a new trident attack of Urby Emanuelson, Giampaolo Pazzini and Stephan El Shaarawy.

Udinese snatched a late 1-1 home draw with Anzhi in the Europa League on Thursday.

Andrea Lazzari is suspended, joining the injured Luis Muriel and Maurizio Domizzi in the stands.

Antonio Di Natale is given a brand new partner in attack, 28-year-old Swedish summer signing Mathias Ranegie.

Milan: Abbiati, Abate, Zapata, Mexes, Mesbah, Montolivo, Ambrosini, Nocerino, Emanuelson, Pazzini, El Shaarawy
Udinese: Brkic, Benatia, Danilo, Coda, Faraoni, Allan, Pinzi, Pereyra, Pasquale, Ranegie, Di Natale
