Mon 22 November 2021 | 14:22

Juventus face Chelsea tomorrow at Stamford Bridge and a win will allow Bianconeri to top Group H. Romelu Lukaku, who has been sidelined for a month due to injury, is likely to play against Juventus, and Massimiliano Allegri believes Lukaku's presence will affect Chelsea's style of play.

Tomorrow, we play for first place against the Premier League leaders and the Champions League winners,

” Allegri said at a press conference.

“Without Lukaku, they have different characteristics differently. They’ll have fewer reference points and do more counterattacks.

Lukaku

is a reference point. They gain speed without him and defend differently.”

Allegri is struggling with injuries in his squad, especially in defense. Danilo will be out for eight weeks and Giorgio Chiellini and Mattia De Sciglio are both recovering.

We have four defenders, including Alex Sandro. In midfield, everyone is available except Bernardeschi,

” said Allegri.

“Danilo will be out for two months and Kulusevski went to the dentist. That’s why he didn’t train today. He will be available tomorrow.”

Paulo Dybala recovered from a leg injury and trained with the rest of the team this morning. Is he ready to start?

I don’t know how long he can play, but he trained with the team and he is available

,” Allegri claimed.

“Moise Kean or Alvaro Morata will start, maybe they will play 45 minutes each. Morata played well against Lazio, same as Kean when he was introduced.

We need to improve the finishing, we create important chances, but we often have the last pass wrong

,” Allegri continued.

“We need serenity and do not rush to score goals. We netted two against Lazio on Saturday, but we could have scored more. The are the preconditions for creating actions, that’s where we need to improve.”

Have

Juventus

missed

Ronaldo

?

That’s the past, Ronaldo has been a centralizer everywhere he’s gone. We have many players who can score goals, we haven’t fulfilled our potential yet,”

Allegri concluded.
