Roma vs Sassuolo build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Mourinho could not have asked for a better start to his time as Roma manager, with the capital club currently enjoying a perfect record. The Portuguese manager’s appointment over the summer was a shock to many, but also provided a statement of intent from Roma in their plans to at least break into, and become regulars in, Serie A’s top four. They kicked off the new campaign with a 3-1 win over Fiorentina and followed that up by beating new boys Salernitana 4-0.
Sassuolo meanwhile are continuing to make a name for themselves as an established top-half Serie A side after consecutive eighth-placed finishes. Sassuolo, like Roma, were one of the 12 Serie A teams to appoint a new manager over the summer with Roberto De Zerbi replaced by Alessio Dionisi, who had formerly been in charge of Empoli. Dionisi’s reign has got off to a good start, with Sassuolo beating Hellas Verona 3-2 before a goalless draw with Sampdoria ahead of the international break.
- Roma (vs Salernitana): Patricio; Karsdorp, Mancini, Ibanez, Vina; Veretout, Cristante; Perez, Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan; Abraham.
- Sassuolo (vs Sampdoria): Consigli; Toljan, Chiriches, Ferrari, Rogerio; Frattesi, Lopez; Djuricic, Raspadori, Boga; Caputo.
Neither side has any fresh concerns going into this weekend’s match.

Players to watch:
- Roma: Tammy Abraham is rightly receiving a lot of the plaudits for his start to life at Roma, but Henrikh Mkhitaryan‘s impact has gone somewhat under the way. The Armenian has re-found form in Rome after his Premier League struggles and, despite some fears surrounding his previous relationship with Jose Mourinho, has hit the ground running in 2021/22. Mkhitaryan scored in the opening 3-1 win over Fiorentina and then recorded an assists in the victory against Salernitana, taking his current run to six consecutive Serie A matches in which he has been directly involved in a goal (scoring five and recording three assists). Since Serie A became a 20-league team again in 2004/05, only two Roma players have had a longer streak than Mkhitaryan, with Francesco Totti
managing nine in 2006 and seven in 2013, while Miralem Pjanic went eight in 2015. Esteemed company.
- Sassuolo: The visitors have a form man themselves, if we look to the end of last season too. Domenico Berardi has not played for Sassuolo this season, having asked to leave in the summer after being part of Italy’s Euro 2020-winning squad. However, Sassuolo, who did sell Manuel Locatelli to Juventus, could not afford to let Berardi leave in the same window and the Italian will be expected to return to action. Berardi ended the 2020/21 season in good form, scoring eight goals and recording three assists in his last nine Serie A matches, while also netting three goals against Roma in the league, all of which have come away from home.
