Icardi dropped for Inter-Roma?

Mauro Icardi could be sensationally dropped for tonight’s Inter-Roma, while Daniele De Rossi requires a fitness test.

It kicks off at San Siro at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

This is a huge game between the current Serie A leaders and the team in joint second place with Napoli and Fiorentina, but also a fight between the best defence in the Division and the most prolific attack.

Felipe Melo is suspended following his red card in the 1-0 win over Bologna, but Roberto Mancini otherwise has a full squad to choose from.

It’s reported that Mancio could drop Icardi after the centre-forward complained he received little to no service.

“I want goals from him, not excuses,” replied the Coach in a Press conference.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Icardi could be ‘rested’ in favour of Stevan Jovetic, Ivan Perisic and ex-Roma talent Adem Ljajic.

Gary Medel returns to midfield and Jeison Murillo is available again after his one-match ban.

There are major doubts in the full-back roles, as Davide Santon and Yuto Nagatomo battle for right-back, Juan Jesus and Alex Telles for the left.

As for Roma, much depends on the condition of midfielder De Rossi, who is returning from suspension and a muscular problem.

He’s likely to require a last-minute fitness test and if he cannot make it, we’re expected to see the same XI that beat Fiorentina 2-1.

Francesco Totti, Seydou Keita and Kevin Strootman remain long-term absentees, but Mohamed Salah is back after his ban.

Inter (probable): Handanovic; Nagatomo, Miranda, Murillo, Juan Jesus; Guarin, Brozovic, Medel, Perisic; Jovetic; Icardi

Roma (probable): Szczesny; Florenzi, Manolas, Rudiger, Digne; Pjanic, De Rossi, Nainggolan; Salah, Dzeko, Gervinho
