Inter Milan will be hoping they can close the gap on the early Serie A leaders when they host Udinese on Sunday at 11:30am (UK time).
The Nerazzurri had an excellent start to the season but slipped away from the top two due to a poor run of form that has seen them win two of their past five games, drawing two and losing one. However, one of those victories came against Empoli in midweek as Inter ended a mini two-game winless run to remain seven points behind AC Milan and Napoli. They can cut that gap to four, at least for a short while, and face an Udinese side that have drawn their past four matches and are winless in seven.

Inter have a fresh squad to choose from but Simone Inzaghi could opt to rotate his side ahead of next week’s Champions League tie against Sheriff. Ignacio Pussetto is the only absentee for Udinese who also have Gerard Deulofeu back.
Cassano blasts Sanchez critics
Even if Inzaghi opts to rotate on Sunday there may still be a chance for Alexis Sanchez to start for Inter, as he wouldn’t be considered part of their first-choice starting XI.
The Chilean, who joined Inter in 2019 and was part of their title-winning squad last season, has not had the best of times since returning to Italy from Manchester United. In his two years at Inter so far, including one season on loan, Sanchez has scored 11 goals and recorded 15 assists in 77 games across all competitions, averaging just 40 minutes per appearance.
This season he has played 175 minutes across seven games and has recorded one assist, setting up Danilo D’Ambrosio’s opener in the 2-0 win over Udinese in midweek.
And former Inter and Italy striker Antonio Cassano has hit out at those who have criticise Sanchez, believing he would show his quality if he had consistent playing time.
“They must rinse their mouths,” he said recently on Christian Vieri’s BoboTV.
“He played in at Barcelona, he won 2 Copa America as a leader, has an incredible quality.
“In Italy we always hear the same things, always the same joke. If you let him play three games in a row Sanchez takes shape, he wins the games alone.”
