Inter forced into changes with Sassuolo

Inter are due to make big changes in defence and midfield against Sassuolo tomorrow, with Marcelo Brozovic and Alessandro Bastoni suspended.

This is the rescheduled Serie A fixture that was postponed before the break for international duty due to the COVID outbreak in the Nerazzurri camp.

All four players have now fully recovered and two of them are expected to start, namely Samir Handanovic and Stefan de Vrij.

Bastoni and Brozovic are suspended, so De Vrij and Matteo Darmian are expected to step into the back three with Milan Skriniar.

Andrea Ranocchia had played on Saturday in the 1-0 win away to Bologna.

Roberto Gagliardini is tipped to take the midfield spot more than Matias Vecino, who was one of the COVID cases.

Ashley Young should again play on the left, as Ivan Perisic left the Croatia team with a muscular issue.

There’s no moving Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez from the attack, as Inter aim to go 11 points clear at the top of the table.

Inter (probable): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Darmian; Hakimi, Barella, Eriksen, Gagliardini, Young; Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku
