The Nerazzurri will be looking to extend their winning streak to five games when they welcome Franco Colomba's men to San Siro on Saturday

Dutch playmaker Wesley Sneijder is still sidelined with a thigh injury and will miss Saturday's clash. Diego Forlan sustained an ankle knock in training earlier in the week and is also likely to sit out the encounter, while Jonathan and Cristian Chivu will have to pass late fitness tests in order to feature at San Siro.

Parma coach Franco Colomba has the luxury of choosing from a fully-fit squad, with Cristiano Lucarelli the only absentee as he is serving a suspension.

The 23-year-old had his best game for the Nerazzurri in the 4-1 victory over Lecce before the Christmas break and will look to replicate that performance when Parma pay a visit to San Siro on Saturday.

S. Giovinco

Position: Attacker

The pint-sized dynamo leads the team in scoring with seven goals and will no doubt be eager to add to his tally as Parma look to spring a surprise over the resurgent hosts.

Editor's Prediction

The Nerazzurri should kick off the New Year in style with a comfortable win over the visitors at San Siro, and continue their recent run of good form.
