Milan’s best start ever in a Serie A season – 31 points from 33 available – has been made all the more impressive given the amount of injuries to Stefano Pioli’s intricately composed squad.
Davide Calabria may have avoided joining the likes of Samu Castillejo (hoarding), Ante Rebic (ankle) and Junior Messiah (muscle) in the treatment room despite being forced off at half-time after a blow to the head against Porto in the middle of the week.
Gianluigi Donnarumma’s replacement Mike Maignan has had his seamless start to life in Milan clouded by a wrist injury that could keep him out until December, while Theo Hernandez denied himself a derby appearance with a rejection in the club’s recent domestic trip to Roma.
But Rossoneri welcomed Alessandro Florenzi back to training and was able to rest the team’s backbone in the middle of the week – Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Franck Kessie and Simon Kjaer – certainly with the derby in mind.

Simone Inzaghi also has a whole compliment to choose from. Apart from the remarkable exception Christian Eriksen, who has been suspended from playing in Serie A throughout the campaign after his cardiac arrest in the European Championships.
Milan: Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Ballo-Toure; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic
Inter: Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Martinez, Dzeko
These giants in the Italian game will meet for the 229th time in all competitions on Sunday. Inter advance Milan with 84 wins to Rossoneri’s 77 in total and can also boast a superior record in the match recently; win six of the last seven disputes with their “cousins”.
Despite the glittering talent on the pitch, the events of the San Siro’s at a Derby della Madonnina – whether it’s a flame lit by a torch or the fantastic typhus coordinated across the curve – seldom fail.

A place in the table may be all that separates these famous enemies, but there is a seven-point abyss between runner-up Milan and Inter in third place. The last time Rossoneri went into a derby with major advantages was their current coach Stefano Pioli in Inter’s dugout.
Milan – with a delicately balanced squad of experience and youthful abundance – has been impressive this term; create and make an abundance of chances while boasting the second best defense in Serie A with their number two between the sticks.
As Inter push forward on all cylinders, Inzaghi’s inherited squad is replicating the defensive determination that defined Antonio Conte’s reigning champion. Although neither side is a nailed winner, the plot of this highly specific deal is almost guaranteed.
Prediction: Milan 2-1 Inter
