Nicola Rigoni and Perparim Hetemaj will probably not travel to San Siro, thus limiting Rolando's Maran options in midfield.
Jonathan de Guzman will drop into a deeper midfield role to cope with the situation.
Inter claimed their fourth consecutive league victory last time out, which is the longest current winning streak in Serie A together with Juventus. Milan have one game in hand but the Neroazzurri are catching up fast.
Chievo suffered back-to-back defeats after as many victories and need to regain their focus after the winter break, not that this will make for an easy task for the hosts.
Inter's improvements have been clear to see, especially in defence, as they have only conceded one goal in the last four games. Given Chievo's style it is possible that this game will hardly excite, but the tactical battle could be interesting.
