Atalanta get Caldara back, drop Gomez again

Mattia Caldara and Matteo Ruggeri are back in the Atalanta squad to face Sassuolo, but Papu Gomez is again left out.

It kicks off on Sunday at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

The Gomez situation seems to be beyond repair, with the club standing by coach Gian Piero Gasperini and the captain repeatedly dropped following their row.

He is training separately from the rest of the team at the moment and is not in the squad to face Sassuolo tomorrow.

Caldara and Ruggeri return from injury, but Mario Pasalic and Rafael Toloi are still unavailable.

So is new signing Joakim Maehle, because the January transfer window doesn’t open until Monday.

Atalanta squad for Sassuolo: Caldara, Depaoli, De Roon, Djimsiti, Freuler, Gollini, Gosens, Hateboer, Ilicic, Lammers, Malinovskyi, Miranchuk, Mojica, Muriel, Palomino, Pessina, Romero, Rossi, Ruggeri, Sportiello, Sutalo, Duvan Zapata
