AC Milan coach Massimilano Allegri is delighted with the form of Stephan El Shaarawy.

El Shaarawy is expected to start the derby after his stunning form, scoring five goals in his last four games.

"Is El Shaarawy the heir to Andriy Shevchenko? Now all the different comparisons have emerged, but I think he has completely different characteristics to Sheva. He has to grow in many ways, even if he has already improved so much from last season," said Allegri.
