ROMA – Roma begins to study Sunday’s match against Lazio, dealing with the absence of Pilgrims. The Giallorossi captain was expelled for the sum of yellow cards in the match against Udinese: aunt controversy for the second yellow, deemed “ridiculous” by Mourinho who in the post game then launched an appeal to the club to try to appeal in order to have it available.
Despite the words of the Special One, Roma will have to deal with his absence in the derby and now the Portuguese will have to study a new strategy for the trocar. There are at least three options to replace the Roma captain. The first of all is it displacement of Mkhitaryan in the position of Pellegrini, instead inserting El Shaarawy on the left in place of the Armenian: “I can play in this role but the coach decides whether I will play as a second striker, as a 10 or as a winger – the words of Mkhitaryan post Udinese -. It will be important to win, I don’t care if I play as a winger or behind the striker. The important thing is to contribute and win the next matches “.
Another option for Mourinho is that of deploy Zaniolo as a central attacking midfielder, inserting Carles Perez on the right or moving one between Mkhitaryan and El Shaarawy (he too can play central) on the wing occupied so far by the 22 Giallorossi. Choice never considered so far by Mourinho who also has another option: Eldor Shomurodov.
The Uzbek against Verona did not convince as a winger and field him second punta could be the surprise in the derby. From the first minute or to the race in progress. More options to replace Pellegrini, but also pay attention to the change modulo. The last alternative would be to remove the central attacking midfielder to insert an extra midfielder to make more density in the middle of the field and help Cristante, Veretout and the defensive department more to stem the three biancocelesti forwards plus the incursions of Milenkovic and Luis Alberto. A 4-3-3 with a license to attack for Veretout, but with a module that would give more coverage to the defense. So many options, Mourinho has the task of finding the best one.
