Mourinho to evaluate Zaniolo’s condition ahead of Empoli

Andy Mattioli

Roma are looking to bounce back from two consecutive defeats in the upcoming Serie A engagement with Empoli on Monday night.

The sixth league fixture will be an opportunity for Jose Mourinho’s men to return to winning ways.

Tammy Abraham and Rick Karsdorp are expected to return to the starting eleven after being excluded from Roma’s trip to Bulgaria due to fitness issues.

Moreover, Roma could recover Nicolo Zaniolo after the youngster went down with a dislocated shoulder two weeks ago with Cremonese.

The 23-year-old is expected to return to group training in the weekend leading up to the Empoli match, reports Corriere dello Sport.

Jose Mourinho will ultimately decide whether to call up Zaniolo on Monday night and have him feature from the bench.
