Line-ups: Roma v Torino

Roma have Edin Dzeko and Lorenzo Pellegrini back in the starting XI against Andrea Belotti’s Europe-chasing Torino.

You can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from today’s three Serie A games on the LIVEBLOG.

Only three points separate the two teams in the Serie A table as they start the second half of the season.

Eusebio Di Francesco must do without Alessandro Florenzi, Daniele De Rossi, Juan Jesus, Diego Perotti and Antonio Mirante.

Dzeko is back to lead the way, sending Patrik Schick to the bench, with Nicolò Zaniolo, Cengiz Under and Justin Kluivert supporting him.

Lorenzo Pellegrini is also available again in midfield following injury concerns, though Steven Nzonzi is rested after dislocating his toe.

There is a rare start for Rick Karsdorp, perhaps also as a test amid reports of a return to the Netherlands.

Torino are still unbeaten on their Serie A travels this season, but have a dire record at the Olimpico, suffering eight consecutive defeats in this fixture.

Defender Armando Izzo and midfielder Soualiho Meite are suspended, with Daniele Baselli and Emiliano Moretti on the treatment table.

Lyanco gets the nod ahead of Bremer in the back three for Walter Mazzarri, while Ola Aina and Lorenzo De Silvestri take the wings.

Iago Falque supports hitman Andrea Belotti, who over the last 24 hours has been linked with a move to West Ham United.

The change is a 3-4-3 formation with Vittorio Parigini completing the trident.

Roma: Olsen; Karsdorp, Manolas, Fazio, Kolarov; Cristante, Lorenzo Pellegrini; Under, Zaniolo, Kluivert; Dzeko

Torino: Sirigu; Djidji, N'Koulou, Lyanco; De Silvestri, Rincon, Ansaldi, Aina; Falque, Belotti, Parigini
