Cerci has recovered from injury in order to make the matchday squad against his old side, however Bonera and De Sciglio will miss this game through injury, whilst Jack and Suso are suspended after last week's dismissals.

Torino meanwhile will be missing Maxi Lopez through injury and Maksimovic through suspension.

AC Milan Squad: Diego Lopez, Abbiati, Donnarumma; Abate, Alex, Bocchetti, Felicioli, Mexes, Paletta, Zaccardo, Zapata; De Jong, Mastalli, Piccinocchi, Poli, Van Ginkel; Cerci, Destro, Di Molfetta, El Shaarawy, Honda, Mastour, Pazzini

Once more, Inzaghi has populated the matchday squad with youth players. Let us hope he has the courage to field some of them, particularly Mastour, however my prediction is we will see none of them debut.

With nothing to play for this season, this is the line up I would like to see take the pitch.

Diego Lopez
Abate---Paletta---Mexes---Felicioli
De Jong---MVG/Poli
Suso---Mastour---El Shaarawy
Destro

With Di Molfetta to replace Mastour and Honda to rest El Shaarawy after an hour.

We can expect the usual side, with Bocchetti in at left back and Pazzini arriving after an hour instead of course.

Can't wait for another pointless match , yayy

and yes , i also hope we see Mastour play . That would be really nice .

Will it happen?? hmm. probably not , but we may or may not see El Shaarawy play later on . I would certainly give him a few minutes in the 2nd half , that's for sure.

Inzaghi's Milan coming to an end guys , long may it be forgotten

Yes , the red cards have been stupid this season. I don't remember another season with so many red cards like this one . Reckless plays and much scrubness overall .

Good game so far , even after the red card we kept calm and thankfully it got balanced out.

El Shaarawy , you pretty beast Proud

Van Ginkel and El Shaarawy ffs , such a beautiful play Proud

So glad El Shaarawy bagged those goals, almost scored a hatrick today. He is the future and i aint even talking about Seth Rollins.

Mastalli looked really good in the short time as well, kid showed some confidence.

I feel as if this team would play much much better if we had a great experienced manager and played with some motivation. Talent wise i dont believe we're that far off from some of the other Italian teams. Our 1023400239184089 CBs we have gathered are all a joke though. I hope they all GTFO from Milan. Except for Bonera of course.

Of the CB's that should stay, i'm hoping for Paletta and Mexes. They're the best of a bad bunch imo. Bonera can always stay and regulate things in the dressing room, but shouldn't be a starter.

Also, this is possibly Abby's last game Laughing Molenation

An excellent result in our final home fixture of the season that went along way to restoring a measure of dignity to both Inzaghi and the squad. This was not a vintage performance by any means nor were we consistent over the ninety minutes but it was punctuated by several moments of quality that saw us emerge as deserved winners.

El Shaarawy must be considered our man of the match. He was restricted by Antonelli's absence and our stunted midfield play which often saw him go long periods without touching the ball in the first half however he won the game through his moments of quality. His first goal was a purely instinctive finish having taken the ball down beautifully in the box and his lovely give and go with Van Ginkel tore Torino's backline to shreds. Though the lack of an overlapping threat limited his involvement, he grew into the game after his first goal and was effective at combining when coming inside and he was dutiful in pressing Peres when he received the ball inside his own half to reduce his threat.

On the other flank, Honda had a positive game overall. Molinaro and Moretti often had to resort to fouling him which acted to relieve the pressure on our side and he looked confident when taking Molinaro on down the flank. Pazzini meanwhile seemed invigorated by the captain's armband and put in his most effective performance of the season as a reference point and credit must be given to him for his role in our second goal, showing great strength and awareness to feed Van Ginkel's run into the box.

In midfield, we were not as comfortable as I would like to see and whenever we play this trio we always struggle to break through the opposition lines but each were dedicated in their defensive duties when covering their fullbacks. We struggled to cover the back four when they broke through the middle due to the pace of El Kaddouri but a crucial, desperate block was always eventually made.

At the back, we missed a great opportunity to give a youngster - and more importantly a true fullback - playing time and instead had to put up with watching central defenders put in incomplete shifts. Zaccardo's Milan career fittingly finished in disgrace though he deserves credit for assisting our first goal and doing his best to get forward, though had we had a true attacking threat at right back we might have been able to better stretch Torino's backline and exploit Molinaro to a greater extent. Bocchetti on the left hand side was largely absent in attack but I will commend his efforts, particularly compared to Bonera last week. In contrast to Daniele, he was aggressive in pushing up and intercepting or putting immediate pressure on the ball carrier at the half way line or even inside Torino's half and it helped to reduce the threat a dangerous Peres posed. As soon as Peres was allowed an opportunity to run at us, he stood absolutely no chance and we were fortunate at times that this did not lead to a clear cut chance early on thanks to De Jong's intervention. He limited Peres' opportunities to wreak havoc however, helped of course by the cover provided by El Shaarawy and Van Ginkel. Bocchetti was caught napping in the final minutes however by Basha's through ball and he has Abbiatti to thank for sparing his blushes.

In the centre, Alex and Paletta were dragged apart on several occasions in the first half by Amauri and Martinez's simple lateral runs. For the most part they shackled Amauri but when he was able to get to the ball first and shield it, they often lost track of the run in behind from Martinez and we were fortunate that a combination of poor touches, poor decision making and hard work by our midfield covered on each occasion. Paletta enjoyed a much better second half however with Mexes beside him, whilst Zapata managed to stay out of trouble in surely his final performance.

We were treated to the debut of Mastalli in the final quarter of an hour and he acquitted himself well. It is difficult to judge him not only on such a small amount of play time but also the fact that after his arrival, we spent a solid two minutes passing it amongst the back four before Torino realised they should probably push up the pitch. His movement during this period in the centre could have been better but we weren't in the mood for moving the ball vertically through the centre in any case. When he did get the ball however he showed excellent initiative to move it forward, also winning a foul from Darmian, whilst he safely completed his passes backward. Nothing spectacular overall but a nice taste for the youngster and a nice moment for the fans.

Finally, we must pay tribute to Abbiatti. Given barely anything to do all game, he preserved our clean sheet with a terrific save as he has often done. It may not have meant much for the result, but it was a fitting way to depart the San Siro for the final time. Thank you Abby, for all of your hard work over the years. You have been a loyal and dependable servant and you shall be missed.
