Picking the Best Potential Inter Lineup to Face Roma on Saturday

​Inter Milan are hoping for an improved Serie A campaign this season and got off to a great start last weekend with a 3-0 victory over Fiorentina.

Mauro Icardi scored twice and Ivan Perisic – still an Inter player despite interest from Manchester United – also got on the scoresheet. Manager Luciano Spalletti has no injury worries, so who should he include for the giant encounter with Roma at the weekend?


  • Handanovic


​A tried and tested pair of hands, Handanovic will be looking to improve upon his haul of nine clean sheets last season.


  • D'Ambrosio


  • Škriniar


  • Miranda


  • Nagatomo


​Miranda has a new centre-back partner this season in the form of ex-Sampdoria defender Milan Skriniar, who has signed a five-year deal with the club.

Club stalwart Yuto Nagatomo should figure at left-back after completing the full 90 minutes against Fiorentina last week, with Danilo D’Ambrosio operating on the other flank. 


​Former Fiorentina duo Borja Valero and Matias Vecino, both of whom played against their old club last week, should start alongside one another in central midfield. 

Marcelo Brozovic is expected to play behind Mauro Icardi with Italy international Antonio Candreva and Croatia ace Perisic providing width from the wings. 


  • Icardi


Icardi, the club’s captain, is a pivotal part of the team and will be looking to build upon the two goals he scored last week.

After grabbing 24 Serie A strikes last season, a career-best for the Argentina international, Icardi will be hoping to lead Inter back into the Champions League after a few season of underachievement.​
