Lens predicted XI vs Lorient: Angelo Fulgini and Nampalys Mendy to return

Lens will be hoping to continue their momentum following a poor start to the season as they travel to Lorient on Saturday. Les Sang et Or have put their poor start to the season behind them following an unbeaten run of ten matches in all competitions. 

L’Équipe reports that Franck Haise is set to make three changes from Lens’ rampant 4-0 victory against Nantes last time out in Ligue 1. One of these changes should come in attack with Angelo Fulgini replacing Adrien Thomasson behind Elye Wahi as the central striker. Florian Sotoca will keep his place following a brace against Nantes. 

There should also be a change in midfield with former Leicester City midfielder Nampalys Mendy replacing Andy Diouf in the middle of the park. Przemysław Frankowski should also replace Deiver Machado on the flank. Franck Haise should name an unchanged defence and Brice Samba should also keep his place between the posts following a clean sheet against Les Canaris

Lens likely XI vs Lorient:

Brice Samba – Jonathan Gradit, Kevin Danso, Facundo Medina – Przemysław Frankowski, Salis Abdul Samed, Nampalys Mendy, Ruben Aguilar – Angelo Fulgini, Elye Wahi, Florian Sotoca
