Inter have a healthy lead at the top of the table.

Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi called on his side to continue playing with “speed, aggression and determination” ahead of their clash against Genoa.

Runaway Serie A leaders Inter are aiming to continue their perfect start to 2024 on Monday night.

They extended their winning streak to 11 games in all competitions this calendar year with a 4-0 victory against Atalanta on Wednesday and Inzaghi hopes Inter can keep the run going.

He told Inter TV: “We have done our best in the last two months but we know that tomorrow is a difficult game, there will be many others too and we need to continue playing with speed, aggression, and determination.”

The last time Inter dropped points came against Monday’s opponents in December when defender Radu Dragusin – who has since left Genoa for Tottenham – cancelled out Marko Arnautovic’s opener in a 1-1 draw.

Genoa are 12th in the table and have also claimed draws against top-four sides Juventus and Bologna as well as reigning champions Napoli this season.

Their last outing saw them return to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Udinese and Inzaghi insisted Inter need to remain “extremely focused”.

“It will be a difficult game. Genoa is a good side, they have 33 points, and they’re having a good season,” he said.

“In the last 12 games, I think they’ve only lost to Atalanta in the final minutes, they’re in good form and we need to face them with focus.

“Genoa covers the pitch very well, they are good in attack and defence.

“We will need to be extremely focused, and technically clean whilst trying to play our usual game.”

Inzaghi also confirmed that there will be changes to the squad ahead of the match.

He added: “There will be some changes, some rotation.

“I am lucky to have players who are ready, unfortunately some could still be out tomorrow, but we have seen that you won’t always have everyone available when you play this much and everyone involved has given me great results”.
