MILAN (AP) - AC Milan strikers Stephan El Shaarawy and Giampaolo Pazzini are back in training after injury.

Italy forward El Shaarawy hasn't played for Milan since the beginning of September after injuring his foot in training, while Pazzini has not played all season after undergoing knee surgery in May.

The duo scored 31 goals between them last season. Fellow forward Robinho will be out for three to four weeks after dislocating his shoulder during Tuesday's 3-0 Champions League victory over Celtic.

AC Milan is 13th in the Italian league and is without a win in its past five Serie A matches. It plays bottom of the table Catania on Sunday.
