Inter Milan’s Premier League rejects: The top flight misfits bidding to win Serie A together

Italian giants Inter Milan are still firmly in the mix to win their first Serie A title since 2010.

They sit in second place, just three points behind defending champions Juventus, and boast the best defensive record in the division having conceded just eighteen goals in their 22 league matches.

Highlights from this season include a 2-0 victory over fierce city rivals AC Milan back in September and an important win against fellow title challengers Lazio the following week, with Danilo D’Ambrosio’s first-half goal sealing all three points for Inter.

However, their side, managed by former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, is full of unlikely lads, with a host of former Premier League players among their ranks.

Starsport takes a look at the English top-flight exports who have helped fire Inter into a Scudetto scrap with Juventus.

Lukaku’s form since leaving Manchester United for Italy has been excellent.

He has scored 20 times for Inter in all competitions this campaign and grabbed four assists, putting him third on the league’s top scorer list behind only mercurial Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Lazio sensation Ciro Immobile.

The Belgian enjoyed varying success levels during his time in the Premier League, beginning at Chelsea after signing from Anderlecht, but he only made fifteen appearances for the club without scoring.

Exciting spells with West Bromwich Albion and then Everton were followed by a mixed period at United.

Lukaku amassed 42 goals in 96 appearances for the 20-time Premier League champions but never fully won over the club’s supporters before he left last summer for a reported £59 million fee.
