I think Dumfries needs to be on the bench for this one and Darmian to come in (Assuming Cuadrado is out or not fit to start). Pavard needs to start again. I do wonder if Inzaghi goes with Carlos Augusto as LCB for this one. De Vrij looked like he may have picked up an injury and Acerbi will start with Bastoni maybe resting?

Curious to see the strikers. I had expected Lautaro/Thuram for Sociedad and Arnautovic coming in for this one. I assume Thuram does not get benched two games in a row. If Lautaro is rested, Sanchez coming in?

I would trust the same formation in this one as well. Means that faith is still there and these players need to bounce back. With one exception of playing Darmian ahead of Dumfries, just because the latter one might need a rest.

Still no complaints whoever starts since we do have quality these days, but it would be great for players' morale giving them another chance to prove that it was just a one bad game.

No need to rush into things with Hakan starting. This is far from a cake walk, but even our bench players are good enough to defeat teams like Empoli for example.

Empoli have conceded 12 times and not scored a single goal in 4 fixtures. Naturally, this is the game that whoever their GK is will channel his inner Walter Zenga and they’ll sneak a match winner in the 89th minute.

On a more serious note, Lautaro should probably get a rest here. Especially with another midweek game on Wednesday.

A 6:30am start here. It's ok, but Inter screwing up while drinking espresso could lead to heart palpitations and an upset stomach along with a foul mood. Forza Inter whoever starts!

If Hakan is healthy, easy 3 points. Lautaro should start. Sanchez can come in later. We need a win.

If Lautaro can't rest against Empoli we are in shit. He is the only forward who has played everything. Thuram is already resting, it's Lautaro's turn. Sanchez against Empoli should be able
