Sky Italia via MilanNews.it are reporting that Andrea Conti could miss the derby as the right back is still ill with tonsilitis. The right back missed the draw against Hellas Verona and was replaced by Davide Calabria. The Milan youth project thus could start again against Inter Milan as Milan looks to take a strong grip of the 6th spot.
New signing Saelemaekers came on as a substitution for Calabria against Verona and thus could be another late option of the bench to add some pace into the game.
