#3 Romelu Lukaku is indispensable for Inter Milan
Inter Milan recorded 19 shots against AC Milan on Saturday. While only six of them were on target, Romelu Lukaku was able to find the back of the net, continuing his incredible form since the beginning of the campaign.
Though he failed to convert from his subsequent seven attempts, he was the biggest threat for Inter throughout the game. He battled well against Milan defenders and even won a penalty in the closing stages of the game after Donnarruma brought him down in the box, only for VAR to rule him offside before the incident.
He is thriving in Conte's current system but needs a better supply of the ball in the final third to give his best on the pitch. Revamping his side's attacking strategy should be next on Conte's list after he sorts out the defensive irregularities.
#2 Zlatan Ibrahimovic shows his class even at the age of 39
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's quick-fire brace proved to be the difference as AC Milan beat Inter Milan 2-1 to record their fourth win of the season. Of the nine goals scored by them this season, the Swede has scored four goals despite making just two appearances.
The fact that he can play the full 90 minutes and score a brace, defying his advanced age, is even more impressive when we consider the fact that the player had only recently recovered from COVID-19.
Signing the former Manchester United striker on a free transfer last December is proving to be one of their best transfer deals in recent years, and the player will likely continue to deliver for them in the coming days.
#1 Missed chances against AC Milan cost Inter Milan points from the game
Inter Milan will be kicking themselves for not converting their chances in the second half. They came tantalisingly close to equalising on multiple occasions, with the closest being Achraf Hakimi's heading attempt which fell inches wide from the target after finding himself unmarked in the box by Arturo Vidal's pass.
Had the Nerazzurri shown more conviction going forward, the outcome of the game could have been very different.
