There will be no rest for Lautaro Martinez during the match against Sassuolo but there could be returns to the starting eleven for three players, according to a report in the Italian media today. 

As has been reported by Corriere dello Sport, the absences of Romelu Lukaku and Joaquin Correa through injury mean that there is no chance for Lautaro Martinez to catch his breath.

He will be starting up front for Inter on Saturday afternoon and Edin Dzeko will partner him.

If anyone is likely to be withdrawn during the game, it is Edin Dzeko given he is 36 years old.

Other changes in the squad could see Francesco Acerbi come back into the defence whilst Denzel Dumfries is expected to take his place on the right wing again.

Kristjan Asllani should be playing in the centre of the midfield three after not starting the game against Barcelona on Tuesday night.
