A midweek 1-0 victory over Empoli has awarded the nerazzurri three points and Inter now return to the top of the table.
Inter boss, Roberto Mancini spoke following another single-goal win, which saw Icardi scoring winner near the end of the first half.
“Playing at Empoli is not easy, it’s always been a tough field and Giampaolo is doing a great job. They played well and created difficulties for us both in the beginning and near the end of the match.
The problem for us was coming back to win after the mistakes made against Lazio, but we succeeded. I would like to see a little more from my team, similar to what we did about three weeks ago where we were much improved. I see a lot of room for improvement.
Is 1-0 becoming common for us? Our defense holds up well, we concede few goals so the merit of our team is great. We had the opportunity to make it 2-0.
Favorites for the Scudetto? The title is not won in the winter. Surely we are on our way to the Champions League.”
