Lukaku predicted to start in Sassuolo clash despite recent hip injury

Andy Mattioli

Romelu Lukaku is back with the team after missing Thursday’s Europa League match with Brighton.

The Belgian striker had been rested ahead of the weekend’s fixture with Sassuolo and as a result of a recurring hip injury that forces him to remain on the sidelines every now and then.

According to La Repubblica, Lukaku has managed to overcome the physical issue and is now predicted to feature in Roma’s starting line-up.

With Lukaku up top – reports the Italian newspaper – Daniele De Rossi could still choose to start Sardar Azmoun alongside him with either Stephan El Shaarawy or Houssem Aouar behind.
