Eriksen starts from the bench

Christian Eriksen is predicted to be only fit for Inter bench against Torino, so with Arturo Vidal injured, Roberto Gagliardini will start.

It kicks off on Sunday at 14.00 GMT.

Eriksen has been struggling all week with an inflammation of the left knee, but Sky Sport Italia report that he took part within the full training session today.

Nonetheless, the Dane won’t be risked within the starting XI for tomorrow’s trip to Turin.

With Vidal already ruled out for a minimum of three weeks following knee surgery, Antonio Conte doesn’t want to potentially lose another big midfield name.

Instead, Gagliardini is tipped to start out with Marcelo Brozovic and therefore the ever-present Nicolò Barella.

As for the remainder of the line-up, it’s expected to be the standard suspects, with Ivan Perisic and Achraf Hakimi on the wings supporting Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku.
