Inter Milan midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and defender Francesco Acerbi are injury doubts for Sunday’s Serie A mjatch against Fiorentina.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the duo’s fitness is under observation in view of the Nerazzurri’s Serie A match on the weekend.

Midfielder Mkhitaryan came off the pitch late during Inter’s Serie A win away to Cagliari earlier this week.

Stefano Sensi came on as a substitute to replace the Armenian.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi was quick to downplay the seriousness of Mkhitaryan’s injury. He calmly confirmed that it was “just a knock” that the 34-year-old had sustained during a challenge.

However, yesterday Mkhitaryan only did a bit of light work to start recovering from the problem.

It is not likely that any risks will be taken with the midfielder’s fitness. Therefore, today’s training session should give clearer information about whether Mkhitaryan will be in condition to play on Sunday against Fiorentina.

Should he be absent, Davide Frattesi would be ready to start in the Armenian’s place.

Not Just Mkhitaryan – Acerbi Also A Doubt For Inter Vs Fiorentina Clash

According to the Corriere, Acerbi’s fitness is also under assessment in today’s training session.

The veteran former Lazio and Sassuolo defender is still working apart from the rest of the squad.

It won’t be long until Acerbi returns to full training with the rest of the squad. He is no longer suffering from the calf injury which he had sustained in preseason training that kept him out of the Nerazzurri’s first two matches of the season.

However, match-fitness could be a question for the 35-year-old.

Therefore, the Corriere reports, Acerbi will likely be on the bench on Sunday.

There is little question that the Italian international will be fit enough to be in the squad. But it should be Stefan de Vrij rather than Acerbi who starts.

The Dutchman had already started Inter’s first two Serie A matches of the season, against Monza and Cagliari.
