Inter coach Antonio Conte will keep Romelu Lukaku on the bench, at least from the start, in tonight’s Serie A clash with Torino according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport.
The Belgian national team player hurt his back and right thigh in the recent 2-2 draw away to Hellas Verona and has been following a personalised training schedule in the days since the match.
Provided the medical staff raise no concerns prior to the match, Conte would like the 27-year-old to be on the bench against La Granata at San Siro.
Alexis Sanchez and Lautaro Martinez therefore appear set to start together in the attack and the report points out that Inter have won each of the two games they have started together in Serie A with the team scoring nine goals in the process. Three came against Sampdoria earlier on this season and six came against Brescia a few matches ago.
