Inter Milan head coach Roberto Mancini names Mauro Icardi on the bench for the Serie A clash with Roma at the San Siro.
Inter Milan head coach Roberto Mancini has left Mauro Icardi on the bench for the Serie A clash with Roma at the San Siro.
Stevan Jovetic is given the job of leading the attack ahead of Icardi, with Adem Ljajic and Ivan Perisic starting in the wide attacking roles for the hosts.
Jeison Murillo returns in defence after serving a suspension as Mancini makes five changes, but there is no place in the side for Geoffrey Kondogbia, who starts on the bench.
Serie A leaders Roma are aiming to make it six wins in a row in the league and Rudi Garcia decides to make just one change as Mohamed Salah earns a recall.
Edin Dzeko and Gervinho continue their attacking partnership, while Daniele De Rossi is forced to settle for a spot on the bench once again.
Inter Milan: Handanovic; D'Ambrosio, Miranda, Murillo, Nagatomo; Guarin, Medel, Brozovic; Ljajic, Perisic, Jovetic
Roma: Szczesny; Maicon, Manolas, Rudiger, Digne; Florenzi, Nainggolan, Pjanic, Salah; Dzeko, Gervinho
