Tahirovic to replace Pellegrini in Spezia-Roma

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho is expected to make some changes to the Giallorossi’s starting eleven in their upcoming match with Spezia on Sunday.

According to Corriere dello Sport, team captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is expected to be rested as he’s played through a minor calf injury over recent weeks and is now doubtful for Sunday.

In his place Benjamin Tahirovic could start. The young midfielder has regularly contributed to recent games and is now favorite to start in the midfield.

Stephan El Shaarawy is likely to slot in on the wing, with Zalewski remaining on the bench.
