Someone needs to tell Simone that the year is actually 2021 and not 2011 when Dzeko was in his mid 20’s and capable of playing 90 minutes every fixture. For fucks sakes, he played 90 minutes with Bosnia twice during the international break too.

This is what i would like to see.

Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Brozovic; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Dimarco; Correa; Lautaro

This match is our only chance to rest some players but we also can't afford another hiccup. I didn't like what i saw from Dumfries but he needs to start games in order to adjust to our system and this match is the perfect opportunity. Perisic certainly needs a rest. It would be a suicide for Dzeko to start a 7th consecutive match. I would also like to rest one of the midfielders ahead of the tough schedule that is coming but Vidal has been very disappointing in the last two games that i am uncertain about it.

Need to put RM behind us and get back to winning ways.

2-1 Inter with a brace by Lautaro.

This one won't be easy either. I'd bench Dzeko he needs the rest, maybe brought in late if needed. Inter bought Dumfries and kept Dimarco so start them. Hakan isn't really working in his current role, save for the first match, either let him ride the pine, then Correa, or try him behind Lautaro. Hopefully quick subs should be , Satriano, Sanchez and Perisic if things go pear shaped. Forza Inter!

Remember when Eriksen got benched for 6 months to adapt Conte tactic ?

and When Conte want Dzeko as Lukaku backup / fourth striker ?

Our Inter is different than last season, we already see Calhanoglu and Dzeko not starting material at Inter, if Conte still at this club they will play as backup.

We simply cannot rationalize starting Dzeko.
Fans will be encouraged by emerging reports that Inzaghi will start Correa for this game, only to realise an hour before kickoff that Correa will start alongside Dzeko, and that it's Martinez who is benched.
