A report in the Italian media argues that Inter Milan have been displaying worrying signs since pummeling AC Milan in the Derby della Madonnina.

The Nerazzurri started their campaign on an extremely positive note winning the first five matches of the Serie A campaign.

Their early-season brilliance reached its climax in the Derby demolition when they hammered their crosstown rivals by five goals to one.

However, Simone Inzaghi’s men have now sustained their first defeat of the campaign, succumbing to a home defeat at the hands of Sassuolo yesterday.

The Emilans turned the result upside-down in the second half to register a stunning 2-1 victory at San Siro.

But according to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Inter’s defeat didn’t ensue out of the blue.

As the source explains, the team’s performances have been regressing since the enchanting Derby victory.

In the last three matches, the Nerazzurri didn’t display the same intensity showcased between August and early September.

Last week, they escaped with a draw against Real Sociedad in the Champions League group stage opener thanks to a late equalizer. In the weekend, they earned a slim 1-0 win over Empoli who resided at the bottom of the table.

Therefore, the source wonders what could be the reason behind this recent slump. This could either be a mental drop, physical fatigue or perhaps a combination of both.


he Nerazzurri will have the chance to return to winning ways this Saturday. They travel to Salerno for an away meeting against Salernitana.
