The club website has confirmed that Gareth Bale has not travelled with the squad to Milan and will therefore take no part in this evening’s clash.
Some brighter news appeared to be the presence of Luka Modric, but Harry Redknapp feels it’s a little too soon for him to get involved.
“He joined in yesterday and will do a little bit tonight, but at the moment I wouldn’t see him starting the game.”
Rafael van der Vaart is expected to be OK, while Peter Crouch faces a late fitness test after receiving a painkilling injection in his back.
Jermaine Jenas is out through suspension and joins injury victims, Bale, King, Huddlestone and Kaboul in sitting this one out.
Here’s our team to face AC Milan. What would yours be?
