Line-ups: Milan-Fiorentina

Stephan El Shaarawy hopes to continue his scoring streak as Milan welcome Fiorentina, who have to reshuffle without Stevan Jovetic.

The Rossoneri are rediscovering their San Siro form thanks to a 5-1 win over Chievo and 1-1 Champions League draw against Malaga.

El Shaarawy is the Serie A Capocannoniere with eight goals and hopes to add to that tally, even though he is playing with a slight tendon problem.

Ignazio Abate, Luca Antonini, Djamel Mesbah, Didac Vila and Sulley Muntari are injured, so Kevin Constant and Mattia De Sciglio are the full-backs.

Kevin-Prince Boateng returns to the starting XI with El Shaarawy and Alexandre Pato.

Fiorentina have been a revelation this season and sit in fourth place, but still have only one away victory.

The bad news for Vincenzo Montella’s men is that Jovetic is out with a thigh problem, joining defender Michele Camporese.

It means a reshuffle in attack with Luca Toni partnering Adem Ljajic.

This is also a very special game for Riccardo Montolivo and Alberto Aquilani, who are facing their former clubs.

Milan: Abbiati; De Sciglio, Mexes, Bonera, Constant; Ambrosini, Montolivo; Emanuelson, Boateng, El Shaarawy; Pato
Fiorentina: Viviano; Roncaglia, Rodriguez, Savic; Cuadrado, Aquilani, Pizarro, Borja Valero, Pasqual; Ljajic, Toni
