Inter have the chance to lay down a marker to their title rivals by toppling the mightily impressive Napoli on Saturday.
The Nerazurri ran out 3-2 winners over rivals AC Milan last weekend, and there likely won’t be too many changes to a winning side…
Samir Handanovic is the undisputed number one at Inter and will keep his place.
Danilo D’Ambrosio and Yuto Nagatomo should be set to keep their positions as the full-backs. The former has started every Serie A match so far, and Nagatomo has been selected for the previous two.
At centre-half, Miranda and Milan Skriniar have been ever-presents in the Italian top flight this season, and have been solid enough to have only conceded five goals so far.
Inter are unlikely to change their midfield too much after their result in the derby. The impressive Antonio Candreva will provide pace and width, and Ivan Perisic crossing and industry.
Matias Vecino has been in decent form since his summer move to San Siro and could again partner Roberto Gagliardini in defensive midfield. Gagliardini came in for the injured Marcelo Brozovic against Milan and should keep his place.
Borja Valero will support Mauro Icardi in the number 10 role.
Icardi wowed last weekend with his hat-trick against AC Milan, but he has been in impressive form for most of the season so far.
Inter’s talisman should take up a lone striker’s role once more and seek to gobble up any opportunities that come his way on Saturday – with Napoli’s goalscoring exploits of late it will be crucial for him to be take even the half-chances.
