The Partenopei are under huge pressure after their dismal recent results saw them fall away from the Scudetto race, sitting just one point clear of Juventus in fourth place.

They managed only one draw in their last three games, fumbling a 2-0 lead at Empoli to lose 3-2 in 10 minutes.

Stanislav Lobotka and Adam Ounas are out of action, but Giovanni Di Lorenzo and David Ospina return.

Mertens again starts with Osimhen, Lorenzo Insigne and Hirving Lozano in a more attack-minded 4-2-3-1 formation.

Sassuolo have lost three of their last four matches, with Georgios Kyriakopoulos suspended, Jeremy Toljan, Hamed Junior Traore, Filippo Romagna and Abdou Harroui injured.

Berardi, Giacomo Raspadori and Filip Djuricic support Gianluca Scamacca.

Napoli: Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Anguissa, Fabian Ruiz; Lozano, Mertens, Insigne; Osimhen

Sassuolo: Consigli; Muldur, Chiriches, Ferrari, Rogerio; Frattesi, Lopez; Berardi, Raspadori, Djuricic; Scamacca
