Another Inter game, another late 2nd half goal, another clean sheet and most importantly another 3 points. Luciano Spalletti has a few selection issues coming up as Antonio Candreva has another stinker.

Samir Handanovic – 7: Didn’t have much to do apart from one save on Omeonga but led the defense today. All his experience and ability is magnified when he is calm.

Danilo D’Ambrosio – 7: Had a few difficult moments but got through them. The goal lifted impending doom and gloom and mostly kept the right side under control.

Milan Skriniar – 6.5: Looked tired but didn’t have many options to pass the ball too as Borja was shadowed all the time. Will get some good rest in before Benevento.

Joao Miranda – 6.5:Just like Skriniar he played all 3 games this week and looked tired towards the end. Kept his cool and ensured that Handanovic wasn’t very busy.

Dalbert – 6: Like D’Ambrosio he also had a struggle in the first 60 mins, then when Eder came on Dalbert used the ball and spaces very well especially in the last 15 minutes.

Borja Valero – 6:  Was marked as Genoa knew he would control the game from the middle, used all his strength, experience and ability but ran out of steam.

Matias Vecino – 6.5: Tried to combine quality and quantity today and was virtually everywhere in the 2nd half. Showed good tactical awareness. Workhorse.

Antonio Candreva – 4.5: When you are the first one to be subbed off it shows that the coach doesn’t appreciate your work. Unwatchable. Surely our poorest player today.

Marcelo Brozovic – 6: Turned off and on quite a bit today. His linkup ideas were good but the execution was lacking. But he helped Borja and Vecino a lot defensively.

Ivan Perisic – 5.5: Not the usual world-class winger we are used to today. Needs more time with Dalbert and didn’t really get under Genoa’s skin for me.

Mauro Icardi – 5.5: Always isolated upfront and today he even put in a last ditch defensive tackle and tried to get involved. Still 24 touches in 90 mins is too little.

Eder – 7: If you look up the word Supersub in the dictionary you will find Eder. He did exactly what Spalletti wanted him to do, should have scored.

Yann Karamoh – 6.5: When Spalletti told us that this guy is quick and can burn the ground beneath him, he wasn’t wrong. Can shoot from distance as well. Promising.

Joao Mario – 6.5: Great impact just like Eder. His qualities are better utilised as a Central mid and it showed today. Won the important header that got Omeonga sent off.

Luciano Spalletti – 7.5: His team was slow and predictable so he made the right subs in by putting the quickest players in. Each player knew their role and position well.

Marco Guida – 5: The red cards were justified but Guida missed too many fouls on both sides. Perisic should have been booked and so should a few Genoa players too for diving.

Inter – 6: The result lets us work in peace and keeps us 3rd in the league, however we cant always keep winning in the last 10 mins. Work needs to be done.

Do you think Karamoh was worth more than a 6,5? Do you think the marks are too negative/positive? Let us know below in the comments or hit us up on Twitter or Facebook.
