Abraham doubt for Roma, Zaniolo expected to be benched

Ex-Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham happens to be a doubt for Roma’s upcoming game against Udinese and Nicolo Zaniolo is expected to be on the bench.

The Giallorossi face the Udine-based club on Thursday and Il Messaggero have reported that while Abraham trained with the squad on Wednesday, there is no certainty that he will start for Jose Mourinho’s side against Udinese. Abraham picked up a slight knock on Tuesday and his presence isn’t guaranteed.

Zaniolo, who had failed to impress against Hellas Verona, is expected to be benched too. While Riccardo Calafiori is expected to start, there is a chance that Roger Ibanez could feature as well. There is an expectation that instead of Zaniolo, Carles Perez gets a chance to start.
