Chiellini to miss Turin derby?

There are reports Giorgio Chiellini might not be fit enough to start tonight’s Juventus-Torino derby duel.

The defender limped off during the final minutes of the win over Chelsea and skipped the defeat to Milan last week.

He had reassured fans that he was fully recovered and ready to play this evening, but rumours in the Italian media suggest his calf problem has flared up again.

Martin Caceres had filled in for Chiellini, but is also injured, so Antonio Conte could pick either Luca Marrone or Lucio in the three-man defence.

Arturo Vidal is expected to rest in order to give Paul Pogba a rare start in midfield with Emanuele Giaccherini tipped to replace Kwadwo Asamoah.

Mirko Vucinic and Sebastian Giovinco are the current favourites to lead the attack.

Kick-off at the Juventus Stadium is at 19.45 GMT.
