Inter entertain Salernitana in Serie A action as Simone Inzaghi looks to put an end to his side's winless run.

The Nerazzurri's goalless draw in the Milan derby in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg extended their winless run in all competitions to five matches, which seemed unthinkable during the first half of the season.

Goals have also been hard to come by for Inzaghi's side after four games without a goal, although they will fancy their chances against a Salernitana side who have won just once in the league since October.

Here's how the Nerazzurri could line up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Samir Handanovic (GK) - His form has tailed off this season, although he will be pleased with back-to-back clean sheets.

Danilo D'Ambrosio (CB) - Inzaghi may look to rotate with a string of tough fixtures on the horizon.

Milan Skriniar (CB) - Dependable defensively and comfortable operating at both the heart of the Inter defence or on either side. Made his 200th appearance for the club in midweek.

Alessandro Bastoni (CB) - Boasts a cultured left foot and is capable of delivering quality into the penalty box on a regular basis.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Matteo Darmian (RWB) - Could replace Dumfries on the right hand side, with the Dutchman's performances dipping in recent weeks.

Nicolo Barella (CM) - The driving force in the Inter midfield, often penetrating the opposition's midfield lines with his direct runs.

Marcelo Brozovic (CM) - Integral to the way Inter play, always finding the right pass at exactly the right moment.

Arturo Vidal (CM) - The Chilean could provide a shot in the arm for Inter after a string of stale performances.

Ivan Perisic (LWB) - Robin Gosens' arrival has cast fresh doubt on the Croatian's future in Milan.

3. Forwards

Alexis Sanchez (ST) - Found the net consistently at the start of the year, but he has still found his opportunities limited.

Edin Dzeko (ST) - Ten goals to his name in Serie A this term. Supply the quality and the Bosnian will usually turn it into goals.
