Palermo manager Roberto De Zerbi could hand recalls to Edoardo Goldaniga, Ivaylo Chochev and Alessandro Diamanti at the weekend.
Defender Giancarlo Gonzalez remains sidelined for the hosts with a muscle tear, and new signing Slobodan Rajkovic is also ruled out of action due to a knee injury.
As for Milan, full-back Luca Antonelli is ruled out for the next 10 days with a calf injury joined by midfielders Andrea Bertolacci (thigh) and Ricardo Montolivo (cruciate ligament rupture).
On the plus, Gabriel Paletta returns from his one match suspension and is likely to replace Gustavo Gomez in a straight swap at centre-back.
Palermo play host to third-placed AC Milan at the Stadio Renzo Barbera on Sunday afternoon, looking to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat in Serie A.
Currently, the Rosanero sit second bottom in the league following their 2-1 defeat to Cagliari last week, and it’s already desperate times for De Zerbi’s men who have only picked up one win from their last 11 league matches.
Palermo’s downfall has been at the spine of the team, who have the second worst defensive record in the league, conceding 21 goals already this season.
In contrast, AC Milan bounced back after their disappointing defeat to Genoa with a 1-0 victory at home to Pescara last weekend, to lift them third on the table five points adrift of leaders Juventus.
Vincenzo Montella will fancy his side’s chances against an opposition low in confidence, and he’ll be hoping Colombian striker Carlos Bacca can break his goal drought this weekend who is without a goal in his last four matches.
Rossoneri will be overwhelming favourites having won their last three meetings against their weekend opponents, which included a 2-0 victory in their previous visit to Palermo thanks to first half goals from Carlos Bacca and M’Baye Niang.
