Michael Bradley looks set to start in midfield as AS Roma try to get their first three-game winning streak of the season when they travel to Siena on Sunday.
Bradley has become a mainstay in the Roma starting 11 for head coach Zdenik Zeman, who has inserted the New Jersey native in various midfield slots this season.
Roma has struggled to find consistency this year and their current two-game winning streak is only their second such successful stretch after knocking off Atalanta and Genoa back on matchdays seven and eight.
Nevertheless, Roma is in a position to make a run at the top of the standings as they currently have 23 points and sit in fifth place, three back of rivals Lazio. Three points are paramount on Sunday versus a Siena team that is in a three-way tie for last place with 11 points.
Roma has no significant injuries to report, but the Romans are still without the services of Danielle De Rossi, who will sit out his third game in a row after being shown a straight red in the derby loss to Lazio.
