Allegri still without Arthur against Sassuolo

Arthur Melo is still out of action as Juventus prepare to visit Sassuolo, as Max Allegri has several options to choose from.

It kicks off on Monday at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT) at the Mapei Stadium.

The Bianconeri beat Fiorentina 2-0 in the Coppa Italia semi-final midweek, going through to the Final 3-0 on aggregate.

According to the latest reports, Arthur is still not training with the full squad, so will miss the third consecutive match.

The absentee list includes Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie, Kaio Jorge, Federico Chiesa and Marley Ake.

Allegri has some choices to make and is feeling the pressure in Serie A after the 1-1 draw with Bologna.

Danilo once again seems certain to play in a more advanced midfield role, with Adrien Rabiot and Denis Zakaria.

Paulo Dybala is tipped by La Gazzetta dello Sport to partner Dusan Vlahovic, leaving Alvaro Morata on the bench.

Leonardo Bonucci is now fully fit again after a long absence, so he should work in defence with Matthijs de Ligt, leaving Giorgio Chiellini on the bench.

Luca Pellegrini is the favourite rather than Alex Sandro at left-back, but Federico Bernardeschi could get the nod after his goal against Fiorentina.

Bernardeschi is capable of playing in numerous different midfield and attacking roles, giving Allegri various options to choose from even with the same personnel.
