Stefano Pioli will be able to call upon Ante Rebic from the start in Sunday's huge clash against Napoli.

Rebic has suffered from numerous injuries since the start of the season, and has only started one game from the beginning, which was on the opening day of the campaign.

Milan have no long-term injuries, and Pioli can implement his full-strength starting XI against Napoli, in what is a clash between first and third.

Through injuries and coronavirus quarantines, Pioli is yet to have a full senior squad available to him, but steadily players are coming back.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will lead the line for Rossoneri, as he hopes to continue his excellent early season form. The legendary Swede has scored nine goals in nine games in all competitions.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to start in goal, with right-back Davide Calabria believed to retain his spot at right-back.

Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer are expected to start in the central midfield two position, with Sandro Tonali again consigned to the bench.

Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers have been in good form recently, but the latter is expected to get the nod, at the expense of the former.

Hakan Calhanoglu will play behind Ibrahimovic.
