Antonio Conte is powering Inter’s Serie A title charge with three key moves, an Italian media report has highlighted today.

The Nerazzurri are sitting top of the Serie A table with a four-point lead over AC Milan in second, following their emphatic 3-0 win in Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina.

Corriere dello Sport’s print edition explained the secrets behind Inter’s terrific league form, which has seen Conte’s side win 13 of their last 16 games.

Inter’s balance has been key to their improved results, with Conte reverting to last season’s 3-5-2 system to stop them conceding so many goals on the counterattack.

Conte has restored defensive solidity by picking the same players week in week out, helping players to build their understanding.

Another reason Inter are doing what they are is their unpredictability going forward, with Ivan Perisic now offering a new attacking option on the left wing.

Despite Inter adopting a more balanced approach, they have still managed to find the back of the net with ease and Perisic’s new lease of life has been important with him contributing like Achraf Hakimi does on the right-hand side.

The third reason Inter are breaking clear of Serie A, the Rome-based paper argued, is their fitness levels and lack of injuries.

Inter are not competing in any other competitions now after their elimination from Europe, which gives players more recovery time between matches and allows Inter to focus solely on the task in hand in the league.

Stefano Sensi is the only player on the sidelines at present, with the midfielder’s condition to be assessed ahead of Sunday’s next fixture at home to Genoa.
