Inter Milan will look to continue their superb start to the Serie A season when they host Torino on Sunday.
Here’s their best potential XI to face the mid-table outfit at the San Siro:
Inter have the joint second best defensive record this season, and one reason that’s the case is thanks to the form of Handanovic.
In front of the Slovenian is a defence which has proved solid so far. Young Slovakian Milan Skriniar has proved to be something of a breakthrough star in Inter’s back four and the stat of the team conceding just eight goals so far goes some way to showing that.
Danilo D’Ambrosio, Joao Miranda and Yuto Nagatomo have also been in superb form, and are likely to continue after consistently great performances.
Borja Valero and Ivan Perisic both scored in Monday’s win at Verona, so both are likely to continue. The midfield five have been extremely strong in Serie A this season, both defensively and offensively, so it’s no wonder these five are constantly starting together.
Torino will offer a relatively strong attack so how the defensive duo of Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino cope in front of the defence could prove crucial.
Mauro Icardi has been in outstanding form this season, and considering he’s the team’s only legitimate first choice striker he will of course be up front. 11 goals in 10 games is proof of that, and given a chance in front of goal you can almost guarantee a goal.
The Argentine has also linked up superbly with winger Antonio Candreva and Ivan Perisic and that could also be a deciding factor in Sunday’s game.
