A dominant Inter eases past Roma at the Giuseppe Meazza, powering three goals past Patricio en route to a 3-1 victory that sees them return to the top.
A positive start from Simone Inzaghi’s side saw their net twice in the opening 40 minutes through great goals from Dumfries and Brozovic, which put the Giallorossi firmly on the back foot.
Mourinho’s side looked positive after the restart. Still, again their momentum was halted abruptly when Martinez slotted a header past the goalkeeper thanks to Calhanoglu’s accurate corner less than 10 minutes after the restart.
It’s a day to forget for Mourinho despite a lovely late goal from Mkhitaryan.
Which proved nothing more than a consolation and an end to Handanovic’s clean sheet.
The Nerazzurri go back to the top of the league – at least temporarily – with the win, while Roma stays fifth.
INTER TAKE THEIR CHANCE AT THE OTHER END! 1-0! A lovely interchange in midfield on the counter-attack by the Nerazzurri gives Calhanoglu the time and space to pick out a pass for Dumfries – sending the wing-back on a central run through the vacated defence. The Netherlands international bursts into the penalty area and coolly slots a left-footed finish past Patricio!
SENSATIONAL FINISH! 2-0! It’s goals in back to back league games for Brozovic, who enters the penalty area on the left-hand side after a leading pass from Perisic before cutting inside and shifting ahead of Mancini and Oliveira to work just enough space. For a right-footed curling effort that beats the goalkeeper!
INTER FIND A THIRD! Calhanoglu gets another chance to deliver a corner from the right, and this time he takes it to perfection, finding the leaping Martinez six yards from goal. The Argentina international manages to rise highest and power his header towards goal in between Abraham and Mancini!
ROMA, REDUCE THE DEFICIT! 3-1! Shomurodov drives towards the byline before cutting a pass back to the penalty spot for Karsdorp. The wing-back dummies the ball allowing it to run for Mkhitaryan, who smashes his shot high into the roof of the goal!
