Forward Alexis Sanchez is looking more and more likely to start for Inter Milan in tomorrow’s Serie A match against Lecce.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi will have to work around a significant absence in attack tomorrow.

Marcus Thuram will be out for the next couple of weeks or so with a thigh problem.

The 26-year-old picked up an elongation of the adductor muscles in his right thigh during Inter’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid during midweek.

Therefore, Thuram will miss at least the next couple of matches for Inter.

It was Marko Arnautovic who replaced Thuram against Atletico. The Austrian came off the bench in the second half, even scoring Inter’s winner on the night.

Alexis Sanchez Looking More Likely To Start For Inter Vs Lecce

Inter coach Inzaghi is thinking about whether to start the same attack tomorrow as played much of the second half against Atletico.

Veteran former West Ham United and Stoke City striker Arnautovic would certainly be ready to start.

And Nerazzurri captain Martinez could also start.

But according to Tuttosport, Inzaghi is leaning more and more in the direction of starting Sanchez.

The 34-year-old Chilean international has not started regularly this season. However, he is fresh, and has been convincing Inzaghi in training.

Therefore, Sanchez now looks likely to start yesterday as the team travels to Puglia.

As far as who would start alongside the former Barcelona and Arsenal forward, it could be either Martinez or Arnautovic.

Meanwhile, Tuttosport report that Carlos Augusto will start on the left of the back three.

That would leave two possible options to start on the left flank. Federico Dimarco, who started against Atletico at wingback, could start tomorrow.

But alternatively, Tajon Buchanan could be utilized in the role.
