Inter make the trip to face Torino in Serie A on Sunday as the Nerazzurri look to get their Scudetto charge back on track.

Simone Inzaghi's side bowed out of the Champions League at the last 16 stage to Liverpool in midweek - despite a 1-0 win at Anfield - and they can now afford to put all of their eggs in the league basket going forward.

Last weekend's 5-0 triumph over Salernitana marked a return to winning ways and they will have league leaders and city rivals Milan in their sights this weekend.

Here's how Inter could shape up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Samir Handanovic (GK) - Hasn't been at his best this season, but his experience will be vital for Inter during the title run-in.

Danilo D'Ambrosio (CB) - Regardless of Stefan de Vrij's fitness status, the Italian ought to be in line for a start.

Milan Skriniar (CB) - Dependable in a defensive sense, never scared to afraid to shirk a challenge.

Alessandro Bastoni (CB) - Ranks only sixth for tackles per match, which underlines the cerebral nature of his game.

2. Midfielders

Matteo Darmian (RWB) - Back to his face his former employers, and he could get the nod over an out-of-form Denzel Dumfries.

Nicolo Barella (CM) - Inter felt the pinch of his suspension in the Champions League over the two legs against Liverpool.

Marcelo Brozovic (CM) - Hobbled off injured in midweek, but Inzaghi is confident that the Croatian will be available for league action.

Arturo Vidal (CM) - A warrior-like performance at Anfield, making a heroic last-ditch block to deny Luis Diaz as Inter chased a second goal.

Ivan Perisic (LWB) - Underlined his attacking credentials with an impressive display in midweek.

3. Forwards

Edin Dzeko (ST) - Dropped to the bench for the win over Liverpool in midweek, but his aerial presence will be vital this weekend.

Lautaro Martinez (ST) - Broke his barren run in front of goal with a hat-trick against Salernitana last weekend, before scoring a sublime goal at Anfield in midweek.
