Inter coach Antonio Conte will turn to Matteo Darmian at left wing-back for tomorrow evening’s Serie A match against Napoli.

The Nerazzurri look to move a step closer to the Scudetto when they take on the Partenopei at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, but Conte is expected to make changes to his starting line-up.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Croatia international Ivan Perisic has not fully recovered from a muscular issue that has ruled him out for the past three games and will be on the bench, leaving the left wing-back slot open.

Ashley Young has deputised for Perisic in his absence but is in danger of losing his position to Darmian after the Italian netted the winner in last weekend’s 1-0 victory over Cagliari.

Elsewhere, Nicolo Barella returns from suspension to start in midfield instead of Stefano Sensi, whilst Lautaro Martinez will replace Alexis Sanchez in attack.

Midfielder Arturo Vidal and defender Aleksandar Kolarov are the only players missing for Inter ahead of their trip to Naples.
