#3 Achraf Hakimi (Inter Milan)
Prior to his move from Real Madrid, Achraf Hakimi had made a reputation for himself during his two-season stint at Borussia Dortmund.
Thus Madrid's decision to sell the Morocco international was a shocking one, as the 22-year-old is widely regarded as one of the finest attacking full-backs in the game.
Hakimi has been in superb form for Inter Milan, scoring six goals and creating four assists in 23 Serie A matches.
His unique ability to balance his defensive duties with marauding forward runs to join the attack on the right side has immensely helped Inter Milan.
Considering his runs on the flanks and excellent link-up play, Hakimi could give AC Milan full-back Theo Hernandez a run for his money.
#2 Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan)
Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku makes the list not only for his excellent performances for Inter Milan this season but also for his rivalry with his AC Milan counterpart Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibrahimovic saw red when both sides met in a heated Coppa Italia clash a month ago. Tempers flared between him and Lukaku, with the duo locking heads and exchanging a few words.
Nevertheless, Romelu Lukaku has been a key man for Inter Milan this season; he leads their scoring charts with 16 goals in 21 appearances.
The former Manchester United man is tied with Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo on 16 goals at the top of the Serie A scoring charts. He has also provided four assists and has had a staggering goal involvement every 79.8 minutes in the league.
#1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan)
AC Milan’s self-proclaimed 'god' takes on his former employers, with whom he spent three seasons between 2006 and 2009.
The veteran striker leads the hosts in terms of goals this season, scoring 14 in only 12 Serie A games.
His last outing in this fixture saw him pick up a red card for violent conduct, though. Ibrahimovich will look to set the record straight with a stellar performance this time.
Zlatan Ibrahimovich is third in the Serie A scoring charts and has been pivotal in AC Milan’s surprise push for the Scudetto.
Should AC Milan get a win, the 39-year-old Ibrahimovich would have played a pivotal role.
