Roma vs Leicester City Team News

After the recent returns of forward Nicolo Zaniolo and midfielder Bryan Cristante, Roma are expected to be without any forced absences, with full-back Leonardo Spinazzola also able to play after a long break since Euro 2020.
Mourinho rested many important players in the weekend’s game against Bologna, including Chris Smalling, Tammy Abraham, Lorenzo Pellegrini, and Nicola Zalewski, and while he had to bring on some late in the game, they are all likely to return from the start on Thursday.
Abraham will lead the line, having scored 24 goals in all competitions for the capital side since joining from Chelsea in the summer.

Leicester City have questions about midfielders Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and James Maddison’s health after they missed the Tottenham game due to calf and hip injuries, respectively, while Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand will continue their layoffs.

Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana, who were both rested over the weekend, are anticipated to return to the starting XI on Thursday, with Caglar Soyuncu only expected to maintain his spot if Rodgers employs a back three for the trip to Italy.

Jamie Vardy was fit enough to start last time out, while Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka are also vying for a starting spot at the top of the pitch, with Ademola Lookman and Harvey Barnes likely to play if the Foxes line up with a wide front three.

Roma possible starting lineup:

Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Karsdorp, Cristante, Pellegrini, Zalewski; Mkhitaryan, Zaniolo; Abraham

Leicester City possible starting lineup:

Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu; Pereira, Soumare, Tielemans, Castagne; Barnes, Vardy, Lookman
