AC Milan are on the brink of Serie A glory for the first time since 2011 as they travel to face Sassuolo on the final day, needing only a point to seal the title.

The Rossoneri have embarked on a five-game winning run following their goalless draw with Torino last month to move two points clear of reigning champions and stadium neighbours Inter at the top, with the superior head-to-head record to boot.

Stefano Pioli's side have recorded eight clean sheets in their last ten games, with the central defensive partnership of Pierre Kalulu and Fikayo Tomori - supplemented by goalkeeper Mike Maignan - providing the backbone to the side's title assault.

Here's how Milan could line up for their most important league fixture in eleven years.

Mike Maignan (GK) - Among the world's best goalkeepers on current form.Davide Calabria (RB) - Leads by example in the Milan backline, rarely dropping below his high standards.Pierre Kalulu (CB) - Bizarrely overlooked by Didier Deschamps for the upcoming Nations League fixtures for France.Fikayo Tomori (CB) - Made the bold decision to leave Chelsea for Italy, but it has paid dividends and then some.Theo Hernandez (LB) - A memorable solo goal to seal all three points against Atalanta last time out, underlining the self-belief among this Milan squad.Sandro Tonali (CM) - Enjoying an incredible season in midfield, playing the highest number of outfield minutes for Milan this season.Franck Kessie (CM) - Set to be his last game for the club as his contract expires next month and an expected free transfer to Barcelona awaits.Rade Krunic (AM) - Played the pass to Theo Hernandez last weekend, before the Frenchman ran the entire length of the pitch.Alexis Saelemaekers (RW) - His end product can often frustrate, but his directness is ideal in this Milan side.Olivier Giroud (ST) - His second half brace against Inter in the Derby della Madonnina earlier this year was pivotal in Milan's surge to the top of the table.Rafael Leao (LW) - Still only 22-years-old, but likely to finish as Milan's top scorer this term.
