Felix to start ahead of Zaniolo vs Salernitana

Andy Mattioli

Nicolò Zaniolo has reportedly still not fully recovered from the injury he picked up on international duty.

So much so, that the Italian attacker is unlikely to feature in the starting eleven for tonight’s league fixture against Salernitana.

According to Il Tempo, Jose Mourinho is thinking of giving Felix Afena-Gyan a chance to start ahead of Zaniolo.

The former Primavera is expected to start alongside Tammy Abraham in a 3-5-2 formation.

Moreover, Rick Karsdorp shall be rested tonight as well, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles slotting in on the right flank.
