Line-ups: Fiorentina v Udinese

Fiorentina have Jose Callejon and Giacomo Bonaventura in the starting XI against Udinese’s Rodrigo De Paul, Roberto Pereyra and Kevin Lasagna.

It kicks off at 17.00 GMT, you can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from all today’s Serie A games on the LIVEBLOG.

The pressure is already piling up on Viola coach Beppe Iachini, with everyone from Maurizio Sarri to Luciano Spalletti mentioned as potential replacements if results don’t turn around soon.

Callejon gets his first start after the deadline day signing as a free agent from Napoli, but it seems to be upfront rather than on the wing, as Franck Ribery isn’t fit enough to play.

German Pezzella does shake off a knock to take his place in defence.

Bonaventura, Sofyan Amrabat and Gaetano Castrovilli provide a quality midfield.

Udinese have some big names in their team too, like Argentina international De Paul and former Watford star Pereyra, although Gerard Deulofeu is only on the bench.

There are also quite a few problems, as Juan Musso, Jens Stryger-Larsen, Rolando Mandragora, Mato Jajalo, Walace and Bram Nuytinck are on the treatment table.

Kevin Lasagna and Stefano Okaka form the front two.

Fiorentina: Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Caceres; Lirola, Bonaventura, Amrabat, Castrovilli, Biraghi; Vlahovic, Callejon

Udinese: Nicolas; Becao, De Maio, Samir; Molina, De Paul, Arslan, Pereyra, Ouwejan; Okaka, Lasagna
