Danilo D’Ambrosio should feature in defence but would be aware of the fact that he’s just a yellow card away from missing out the next game. Roberto Gagliardini’s injury could incline Antonio Conte to opt for a three-man midfield of Matias Vecino, Borja Valero and Marcelo Brozovic. Cristiano Biraghi is also expected to come in place of Antonio Candreva.
Alexis Sanches, Nicolo Barella, Stefano Sensi, Kwadwo Asamoah and Roberto Gagliardini are all sidelined due to injuries.
Nicolo Zaniolo is back from suspension and should retain his spot in midfield. With Javier Pastore and Justin Kluivert being out injured, Henrikh Mkhitaryan could get a spot in the starting eleven. Leonardo Spinazzola could come in as the full-back since Davide Zappacosta is also rule out due to an injury. Bosnian centre-forward, Edin Dzeko did miss out a few training sessions due to illness but should be back in the starting lineup.
Inter Milan- Handanovic; Skriniar, Vrij, D’Ambrosio; Biraghi, Brozovic, Valero, Vecino, Lazaro; Martinez, Luaku
Roma- Lopez; Spinazzola, Mancini, Smalling, Kolarov; Diawara, Veretout; Zaniolo, Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan; Dzeko
