Viola are on a three-game winning run in the league. They followed defeat at Roma on the opening weekend of the season with successive 2-1 wins over Torino, Atalanta and Genoa respectively, to move up to fifth on the standings. 

Inter lead the way ahead of Napoli's match against Udinese on Monday evening, having made a free-scoring start to their title defence. 

The Nerazzurri have scored 15 goals in their opening four games this season and beat Bologna 6-1 at the San Siro this past weekend. The result followed a disappointing 1-0 loss at home to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. 

"I was worried about this match because after a game like the one with Madrid, in which we definitely deserved more, there was a bit of worry (for the reaction)," Inter manager, Simone Inzaghi, told DAZN following the win over Bologna on Saturday. 

"But the boys approached the game in the best way possible."

Dutch wing-back Denzel Dumfries has made an impressive start to life in Milan and was equally impressed with the way in which Inter bounced back.  

"I'm very happy. I think it was a good game from us, after the defeat of Real Madrid we needed to bounce back and we did a very good job as a team," Dumfries added. 

"I feel good, my teammates gave me a warm welcome and helped me a lot so I'm happy to be here."
