Inter Milan travel to Hellas Verona on Monday after their midweek 3-2 victory over Sampdoria sent them temporarily top of Serie A.
However, Napoli maintained the chase by beating Genoa by the same scoreline on Wednesday to return top and the Gli Azzurri have a chance to go five points clear if they can beat Sassuolo on Sunday.
Here’s who Luciano Spalletti could pick to ensure Inter keep up the title race.
An ever present in goal for Inter, the Slovenian will be looking to keep up his good run of form after a great display against Napoli to keep a clean sheet last week.
Spalletti is likely to stick with the same back four that played against Sampdoria.
New signings Dalbert and Joao Cancelo still struggle to get a look in at full back as Danilo D’Ambrosio and Yuto Nagatomo continue to perform consistently, whilst fellow new signing Skriniar continues to impress at centre back.
This game is likely to come a few days too early for Marcelo Brozovic who remains out with a muscular issue, meaning Borja Valero will play in a more advanced role with his defensive duties filled by Roberto Gagliardini.
An attacking trio of Antonio Candreva, Valero and Ivan Perisic should give Inter’s captain up top plenty of service.
Not much more needs to be said about who will be leading Inter’s attack, arguably one of the hottest strikers on the planet right now with an incredible 11 goals in 10 league games, the ever-impressive Mauro Icardi.
Inter’s captain will look to continue his own personal goal streak whilst also leading Inter to their eleventh game unbeaten.
