Line-ups: Napoli-Chievo

Napoli aim to get back on track and match a remarkable club record as they host high-flying Chievo.

It kicks off at the Stadio San Paolo at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), follow the build-up and action on the LIVEBLOG.

The Partenopei were top of the table a week ago, but stalled 0-0 at Genoa on Wednesday evening and lost the leadership to Juventus.

Now Maurizio Sarri will rotate his squad ahead of the Champions League crunch match with Benfica.

That means resting Arek Milik, Dries Mertens, Allan and Elseid Hysaj in favour of Manolo Gabbiadini, Lorenzo Insigne, Piotr Zielinski and Christian Maggio.

Napoli are seeking a ninth consecutive Serie A home victory, something they haven’t achieved since April 1990.

Chievo have been a revelation so far this season, sitting alongside Roma and Inter in third place with 11 points, only one behind Napoli.

The Flying Donkeys are soaring, having beaten Inter and Sassuolo, while falling to a narrow defeat at Fiorentina.

Coach Rolando Maran has a full squad to choose from and has Valter Birsa pulling the strings behind Roberto Inglese and Riccardo Meggiorini.

Napoli: Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; Zielinski, Jorginho, Hamsik; Insigne, Gabbiadini, Callejon

Napoli bench: Rafael, Sepe, Hysaj, Strinic, Maksimovic, Rog, Tonelli, Giaccherini, Allan, Mertens, Diawara, Milik
