Inter Milan returns on top of Serie A summit after a 4-2 win in Milan derby
Inter started in third but leapfrogged Lazio and head the table on goal difference from champions Juventus who lost 2-1 against Hellas Verona.
Ante Rebic tapped home from Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s knockdown and the Swede headed in the second before the break.
But Marcelo Brozovic volleyed in and Matias Vecino stroked home Alexis Sanchez’s cutback before Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku both scored headers.
Inter Milan are now unbeaten in 16 league games and host Napoli on Wednesday, before a crucial clash against fellow title challengers Lazio next Sunday.
