This comes as the team nearly surrendered what had been a convincing lead at one stage, with the manager likely wanting to get a convincing victory under the belt, having lost against Juventus in the previous game.
Inter initially went 3-1 up within 45 minutes, thanks to a brace from Romelu Lukaku and a strike from Lautaro Martinez, as per WhoScored.
Though after Martinez scored his second of the game, Inter’s fragilities in defence were clear to see, allowing Filip Djuricic and Jeremie Boga to get on the score sheet.
This is almost half of the goals they have conceded in the league all season, as they have let in a total of seven, so this will have come as a shock for many of those watching.
Conte is correct to be annoyed with his players following their near-collapse, as they had the chance to prove a point to their fans and the other teams in the league with a resounding win, though the effect will have worn off after that.
The team are still in a good position to challenge Juventus for the title despite losing to them, but they will need to maintain standards throughout the campaign if they are to go all the way – they got away with things on this occasion.
