Simone, for the love of God rotate the squad a bit in this one. Some players are dead tired.
I think he will, we certainly won’t play the same middle 5 that we’ve played 3 games in a row now. Especially since it looks like Darmian will probably be out.

Also, I think it makes more sense to rotate against Spezia at home then Venezia on the road, who actually came into the match in good form.

I would start Dimarco in place of Perisic and give Barella a breather. This match should be easy.

Barella and Brozo are the only 2 players to play every minute of Serie A (I think) but if we rest these 2 players its a massive problem. I think we should give these players 60 mins and sub them off, like I am saying we have 2 weeks off coming up at end of December.

Also we really don't know if these 2 players are saying they want to play every game and with the Brozo contract and Barella future captain status you don't want to upset these players.

Nope both Brozo and Barella have been subbed during games

if i see Dzeko play 90 minutes i am gonna lose my mind. He is pretty much finished after 60 min and even thats probably too kind to say.
The last 30 min of the last game Dzeko was actually rly good helping in the middle and even going deeper to defend. I think that it's the reason that Inzaghi keeps Dzeko on the pitch almost every time he starts. He defends well, good to have on set pieces and corners where Martinez and Correa are lacking in those areas. So if you can have a fresh Correa or Martinez try and hit them on counters late in the game, Inzaghi have opted out to use Dzeko in a defensive role in the late parts of the game.

Vidal and Sanchez have returned to group training. Darmian and Ranocchia will be out for at least 15 days. There's optimism De Vrij will be back against Roma.

Switch Perisic to the right and play Dimarco on the left.

If we can't beat spezia with some rotation we are in big trouble. Rest dzeko and barella. Dumfries needs to start and dambro could as well but with our injuries that may be too much disruption. Perisic should also get a rest.

What a shame Darmian pulled a thigh, he is currently as important as our main backbones, defense3, mid3, Perisic, Dzeko, Lautaro.

Dumfries is simply not good enough at this moment, he can do his job vs Spezia, but not vs Roma. We have to win in Rome!

But what I like about Spezia match is that we play earlier and with a win, can pile some pressure on Bilan and Naples, Pioli already gifted 6pts difference on us, sooner or later Napoli will do.

So only Handanovic isn't considered main backbone? :yao:
