Mauro Icardi scored twice as Inter edged past Spal prior to the international break.

AC Milan are also in good form and are unbeaten in six following an entertaining loss away at Napoli.

Gonzalo Higuain scored twice as Milan eased past Chievo last time out.

Team news
Sime Vrsaljko has recovered from injury and will start in his favoured right-back role.

Despite being a regular for the Brazilian national team, Miranda is out of favour currently at club level.

Higuain overcame an injury prior to the international break and will look to extend his good start to his AC Milan career.

There is a good chance Gennaro Gattuso will name the same team that beat Chievo.

Expected starting XI’s
Inter (4-2-3-1): Handanovic; Vrsaljko, Skriniar, De Vrij, Asamoah; Vecino, Brozovic; Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic; Icardi
AC Milan (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Biglia, Bonaventura; Suso, Higuain, Calhanoglu
