Hernanes not 100% in Naples

Lazio midfielder Hernanes won't be 100 per cent fit for the trip to Napoli on Wednesday, but should play a part in the game.

According to reports in the Italian media, the Brazilian playmaker is nursing a swollen left foot after the 1-0 loss to Genoa last night, but should feature as the Biancocelesti look to get their positive start to the season back on track against Walter Mazzarri's men.

There were initial concerns that the 27-year-old would be completely ruled out of the midweek visit to the Stadio San Paolo, but Lazio's medical team have since examined the bruise and confirmed that the No. 8 will be available against the Partenopei.

The former Sao Paolo man has been in inspired form so far this season, scoring three goals and providing two assists in three Serie A games.
