One of my favourite matches in the world to watch. After the snore fest that was the Manchester United vs Liverpool game, I was hoping this game would have given me a real good game to just purely enjoy, and since this is the first time match i’m not talking about Manchester United, there will be a less biased point of view.
I love Mauro Icardi and everything about him. He has been a consistent 20 goal a season goalscorer now for years, and against the red and black he showed why he’s been so good. He bagged a great hatrick, with the second being one of the best goals I’ve seen all season. Inter’s captain showed some great leadership by carrying the attack and giving Inter a real killer edge. He is a controversial, arrogant and unique player, but it’s why I love him. He reminds me of Zlatan in his big presence and personality. He’s been Inter’s best player for 4 years now and he still has so many years left on him.
Slow Starting Milan
Bonucci is the best defender on the planet. He has this incredible ability to read the game and has excellent distribution, but his Milan career hasn’t started so great. He was at fault for the second goal because he was ball watching. Milan have really struggled against the bigger teams, losing at home to Roma and Lazio scored 4 past them. It seems when they play teams with similar quality players, the lack of chemistry shows itself. Milan played a side that contained 7 new players, and played a system that didn’t seem too familiar. This team might take time to play well together. They’ve bought so many players, with most being great signings. This season is all about getting in Europe again, and making sure this team and play well together
This is the third derby in a row where I’d say he’s Milan’s best player. He is just incredible in these games. He is so dangerous on his left foot that by now I thought Inter would realise do not let him turn. Let him go to the corner flag and try cross the ball, but they don’t. He ended up scoring a beautiful goal and he just continues to love these games.
