Missing Players and team news:
After being sent for surgery on a torn meniscus, Inter boss Antonio Conte will be without midfielder Arturo Vidal – who had finally started on Monday after a prolonged spell out of the team – until some time next month. Otherwise, only Christian Eriksen (knee) and Aleksandr Kolarov are doubtful ahead of the trip to Turin. If Eriksen is fit to start, the former Tottenham playmaker should come back in to replace Vidal, with the rest of the XI that faced Atalanta unlikely to change. Following his late red card in Crotone, midfield mainstay Tomas Rincon must serve a suspension for Torino, but Davide Nicola will be buoyed by the return of several first-teamers after they emerged from quarantine protocols. The Granata’s COVID-19 outbreak seems to be subsiding, as Karol Linetty, Bremer and top scorer Andrea Belotti returned negative tests during the week, with both Wilfred Singo and Nicolas Nkoulou awaiting the results of re-tests before kickoff. If Bremer is not thrown back into the deep end against the fearsome Inter attack, then former Milan defender Ricardo Rodriguez would continue to deputise in the Toro back three, while Serbian midfielder Sasa Lukic could cover for Linetty again if needed. After scoring his first goal for the club, having returned from his own brush with the virus, Antonio Sanabria is set to continue in the front pairing alongside Simone Zaza, with Belotti perhaps playing a part from the bench.
