Milan face the Napoli at the San Siro on Saturday after falling 2-1 to Roma last weekend.
Maurizio Sarri’s men are without a win in Serie A since October 28.
“They have a big game coming up on Saturday,” Milan boss Giuseppe Marotta told Rai Sport.
“We’ve got to be able to take care of our defence.
We’ve seen the results.
“The most important thing for us is to play with a positive attitude.
We want to win and that means doing things in a good way.
“Mariano Lippi’s men have a great chance of avoiding their worst ever defeat in Serie B after falling 1-0 to Parma on Sunday.
They have a good start to the season, but it hasn’t gone well,” Marotta said. “

I know how tough it is for them.
We know they have a difficult game coming, but we can take that as a positive.
We are not trying to make it a perfect game, but a game where we can give everything we have.”
Marianosopoli will have to win if they are to keep pace with the league leaders.
The Rossonerio have a game in hand on Roma, with Napoli having to defeat Parma, Roma and Sassuolo.
In a game marred by poor performances by the Giusepines defense, they have conceded three goals in the last three matches.
Milan have been without top scorer Simone Zaza and have only two goals from their starting XI.
Zaza will be available after his ankle injury, but is unlikely to feature against the visitors.
Parma, meanwhile, are without striker Mario Balotelli and striker Leonardo Bonucci after both were injured against Sassuoli.
A loss would put them eight points adrift of second-placed Juventus, who travel to Turin for the second leg of the play-offs on Saturday.
Roma, meanwhile are without star striker Andrea Ranocchia and captain Massimo Luongo.
Mario Balotucci and Andrea Ranoccchi have been suspended for the match Rome were without their top scorer and top scorer, Mario Balletucci, who is expected to be sidelined for up to four weeks with an ankle injury.
Rossoneri defender Mario Mandzukic will also miss the match due to a thigh injury.
The Bianconeri’s next game is against Sassucola on Sunday and the match against Napoli will not take place until Saturday night.
