In the 3-0 defeat of Milan, Antonio Conte felt Inter created an “extraordinary performance” picking out midfield duo Christian Eriksen and Ivan Perisic for special praise.
Inter moved four points clear, with leading roles played by Christian Eriksen and Ivan Perisic, at the Serie A summit.
The Nerazzurri pushed four points clear at the top of Serie A, Lautaro Martinez scoring in each half at San Siro, thanks to a resounding victory in the derby on Sunday.
It was a case of the best-laid plans coming to fruition for Conte, while they needed Captain Samir Handanovic to make a spectacular trio of saves early in the second half while the score was still 1-0.
“Compliments to our guys, who made an extraordinary performance,” Conte said according to the Goal.
“A very well-prepared match, which they followed perfectly, translating the situations they experienced on the pitch.”
“There is satisfaction in seeing the growth of the group and I am happy because the guys deserve to reap the benefits of the work we are doing.”
