Stephan El Shaarawy returns to the AC Milan attack for the Serie A clash with Hellas Verona on Sunday.
Stephan El Shaarawy has returned to the starting lineup for AC Milan's meeting with Hellas Verona in Serie A this afternoon.

There's also a recall for Michael Essien, who starts alongside Nigel de Jong and Sulley Muntari in the centre of the Milan midfield.
Verona head coach Andrea Mandorlini, whose side can climb above Milan with a victory, elects to start with Bosko Jankovic in an attempt to provide support for veteran striker Luca Toni.
