Sarri is hoping that the squad bounce back from their painful 3-0 loss against Bologna before the international break, with the return of Simone Inzaghi to the Stadio Olimpico being a motivating factor for the players.

Inter have started their season well under the 45-year-old Italian coach, remaining undefeated in their first seven matches. They have won all but two games so far, dropping points in draws to Atalanta and Sampdoria.
