Giorgio Chiellini hopes to be in Juventus's starting lineup for their Serie A clash against AC Milan on Sunday.

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has said that he hopes to regain full fitness for his side's Serie A clash against AC Milan on Sunday.

The Italian centre-back has been suffering from ankle problems in recent days and missed the Bianconeri's 2-0 away win against Lazio on Monday.

"I'm feeling better," he told reporters. "And I'm certainly hoping that I will be available to face Milan. We'll just have to see what happens."

Juventus are currently 11 points clear at the top of the Serie A table, while Milan are third.
