Chris Smalling ruled out for Roma-Empoli

Chris Smalling will not be available for tomorrow night’s Serie A affair with Empoli.

The English defender did not train with the team over the past few days and has been excluded from Mourinho’s squad list for tomorrow evening.

Similarly, Lorenzo Pellegrini will also be unavailable after picking up an injury on international duty.

The two players are expected to recover ahead of Roma’s first Europa League match of the season with Sheriff in Tiraspol.
