Serie A is back after the annoying international break: here are the suggested players to select.
Alfred Gomis: SPAL so far have had the best defence in the league, allowing just one goal in three matches. Only Fiorentina matched them, but in one fewer fixture. It will not be easy against Atalanta on Monday night, but they have been so stingy so far.
Bartosz Bereszynski: Frosinone are one of the two teams which have yet to score a single goal in Serie A and they looked so toothless, with Federico Dionisi, Joel Campbell and Daniel Ciofani all injured. The Pole also delivered the assist for Fabio Quagliarella’s wondergoal two weeks ago.
Domenico Criscito: Genoa will face the other club that has yet to find the target, Bologna. On top of that, Criscito has been a menace with his left foot, already collecting two assists.
Aleksandar Kolarov: he has not looked as good as last season yet, but he remains a big playmaker for Roma and might be able to collect some bonus points taking advantage of a cosy home match-up against Chievo.
Ivan Perisic: while they were dealing with few key absences, he has been the linchpin Inter have been hanging on and he delivered with two goals and two dishes in the last two matches. Inter will host Parma on Saturday.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: he has yet to put his name in the scoresheets so far this season, but he finally looked like himself in the Frosinone game, where he lead the charge with several long-range shots. The Empoli game might be the right opportunity for him to break through.
Gregoire Defrel: he bagged a terrific brace against Napoli, with a gem from distance and then with a clever finish from in close. Marco Giampaolo’s system works much better with a speedster up front. Sampdoria probably will likely not have that much room against Frosinone, but it is a good idea to ride him since he is listed as a midfielder.
Seko Fofana: the Ivorian powerhouse has looked comfortable in the schemes of the new coach and has left his mark on offence with a goal and an assist. He will try to keep it going in the Torino fixture, which should be a war of attrition.
Edin Dzeko: he tallied only one goal in three games with Roma and at times looked nervous for the lack of decent feeds, but he is coming off a fantastic score with Bosnia. Chievo conceded six goals to Fiorentina and three to Juventus.
Cristiano Ronaldo: after the initial suspension, he started slowly with Real Madrid last year as well, but he eventually ended his drought on his fourth appearance. He is shooting a lot, but mostly from too far away. Sassuolo play proactively, but they are rather permissive in the back.
Gonzalo Higuain: he put a stamp on the Roma game with a gorgeous late assist for Patrick Cutrone. He is shoulder a big offensive load at Milan and might do damage against Cagliari, which have had a hard time dealing with the top attacks last season.
