The FC panel discuss the positive impact Pep Guardiola has had on English football and whether or not his City side can finish the season unbeaten. Manchester City sealed a Premier League record run of 15 consecutive victories on Wednesday with a 4-0 win at Swansea City, but they still have a way to go before they can claim the record across Europe's top five leagues. Pep Guardiola's side have the longest winning streak in the English top flight, and perhaps it's no surprise -- the Catalan coach is now looking to break his own continental record that he set at one of his former clubs. ESPN FC's correspondents look at the best runs in La...

Samir Handanovic flawless in Inter's 0-0 draw with Juventus

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 10:31:00 PST

Inter manager Luciano Spalletti reveals his disbelief at his side's performance after their 0-0 draw against Juventus. Inter managed to come away from the J Stadium with a precious point after a hard-fought 0-0 draw. Juventus had most of the chances, Mario Mandzukic forcing a fine save off Samir Handanovic and seeing his follow-up be cleared off the line by Joao Miranda. The first half ended with the Croatian seeing a header hit the bar. A more subdued second period saw possession football rule the roost, Inter's only chance being sent just wide by Marcelo Brozovic.

Juve have conquered big challenges before but now must adjust to Inter

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 06:14:00 PST

Max Allegri plays down the significance of Juventus' meeting with Inter, saying at least four clubs can still win Serie A. It must be said, for a club that many have said is experiencing a crisis and is not at the level it was in previous years, Juventus have navigated through their tricky ties well. Not only did the Italian champions defeat Napoli to keep themselves in the hunt for the seventh consecutive Scudetto, they defeated Olympiakos in Greece to progress in the Champions League. All that's left is the Derby d'Italia to round off the week, and if Juve succeed and defeat their most "hated" rival, they will have...

Inter have chance to show they are truly back in Derby d'Italia

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 02:56:00 PST

It was a tad odd to see Inter fans mock Milan last week. Four-nil up against Chievo, the entire San Siro began to jump, yelling: "If you don't jump, you're a Rossonero." Why didn't they choose this weekend's opponent Juventus? Perhaps it was because the hated Diavolo had just sunk further into ridicule, or because certain habits die hard. Still, it felt weird, because since the match-fixing scandal Calciopoli, most Inter faithful have it in more for Juventus than they do for their crosstown foes....

Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic and Inter Milan stars sing Jingle Bells

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 04:20:00 PST

Il Natale si festeggia in famiglia e quella interista si riunisce il 16 dicembre allo stadio Meazza, per finire la canzone manca solo la tua voce. Unisciti al coro nerazzurro e vieni a cantare #InterBells! <¤ #InterXmas pic.twitter.com/GSPNAdkOzT&mdash; Inter (@Inter) December 7, 2017 With the big day just around the corner, Inter Milan have taken it upon themselves to spread a little festive cheer to their fans. The Serie A side have produced their very own Christmas song with the whole Nerazzurri squad getting involved, reluctantly or otherwise. As such, the likes of Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic and even club legend Javier Zanetti have lent their dulcet tones to "Inter Bells" -- a subtle reworking of the season classic "Jingle Bells". We think you'll agree it's both joyful and...

Inter Milan riding high on confidence as they travel to free-scoring Juventus

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 03:37:00 PST

A week after putting on a tactical masterclass in Naples, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has gone back to the drawing board. Ahead of Saturday's Derby d'Italia, another mouthwatering top of the table clash in Serie A, he made a simple but significant observation: "Inter are a different team. It'll be a different game." Allegri was clever to pack the middle and leave the flanks to Napoli in the 1-0 win last week. By congesting the centre, Napoli's front three got bogged down and couldn't play...

Inter hammered Chievo at the San Siro on Sunday, thanks to an Ivan Perisic hat trick. There were long stretches of simply excellent football from the Nerazzurri, whose first two goals (the second was by Mauro Icardi) owed something to Stefano Sorrentino errors. Though Chievo bravely tried to fight back, Inter rolled over them around the hour mark, Milan Skriniar joining the fun with a diving header, because the Slovakian isn't content with being a mere mortal.

Inter fans still jaded by Mauro Icardi's personal life and outspokenness

Sat, 2 Dec 2017 08:14:00 PST

The FC panel debate whether or not Mauro Icardi's goalscoring form with Inter is the best in Europe so far this season. If there's one man who has played a crucial role in Inter's unbeaten run, it's Mauro Icardi. With the Nerazzurri enjoying an unprecedented unbeaten start to the season, the Rosario native has led the line with 15 goals, level with Lazio's Ciro Immobile at the top of the Serie A goal-scoring charts. And yet, a mere 15 months ago, there were many not-so-enlightened souls who wanted this (supposedly arrogant) young pup carted off to Napoli for a sum believed to be in the range of &#8364;50-60 million. Now...

Mauro Icardi, Antonio Candreva get 8/10 as Inter remain unbeaten

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 11:53:00 PST

The FC panel debate whether or not Mauro Icardi's goalscoring form with Inter is the best in Europe so far this season. Inter have now gone 14 games unbeaten (and are top of Serie A, but only provisionally) after defeating Cagliari at the Sant'Elia on Saturday night, courtesy of another Mauro Icardi double. They had a difficult start, with the home side chasing the Nerazzurri down so mercilessly that Inter's first shot on goal didn't come until around the half hour mark. Though, being a Icardi finish, it promptly ended up in the back of net. Cagliari's attempts at ramping up the tempo in the second half only resulted...

Check out all the best moments from Serie A's top sides, as Napoli continue to set the pace and Inter stay close behind. The numbers don't tell the whole story but they do give a sense of just how lethal Mauro Icardi is as a striker.&nbsp;&nbsp; Still only 24, two years ago he became the youngest&nbsp;Capocannoniere&nbsp;since Paolo Rossi in 1978. The Argentine has already scored more than 100 goals in Italy. This is his fourth season in a row in double figures and we're only in November. He's the first player to achieve that with Inter since Christian Vieri. And if Icardi completes another hat trick to go with...

Transfer Talk: Mauro Icardi to join Real Madrid

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 06:23:00 PST

The Inter Milan hit man has been in stunning form, scoring 13 goals in as many games. Mauro Icardi will join Real Madrid next year to replace Karim Benzema, according to former Milan star Daniele Massaro. Benzema has been in poor form this season and struggled to find the back of the net on a regular basis, scoring just once in La Liga.

Check out the best goals of Matchday 11 in Serie A, including classy finishes from Gonzalo Higuain and Suso. It has been a horrible international week for many Inter fans. After the heartbreak of watching Italy fail to score against Sweden over 180 minutes of turgid football, Inter's only representatives at the World Cup are Ivan Perisic, Marcelo Brozovic (who always plays lights out for Croatia) and Brazil's Miranda. Oh, and Japan defender Yuto Nagatomo, because adding insult to injury is a habit of his, even when he's doing well for club and country. Still, there's a silver lining for the Nerazzurri....

Super sub Eder saves the day as Inter Milan salvage draw vs. Torino

Mon, 6 Nov 2017 01:07:00 PST

Eder wasted no time in erasing Torino's lead and allowing Inter to take a point. Inter Milan came away with only a point after drawing 1-1 with Torino. The visitors bravely tried to take the game to the Nerazzurri and could have gone ahead toward the end of the first half from a Daniele Baselli header. Despite creating the lion's share of the chances, the Nerazzurri went behind to a Iago Falque beauty on the hour mark. Showing the usual pluck and determination, they quickly levelled through "super sub" Eder but were denied a winner by the bar late on. Positives Inter played...

Overshadowed Vecino making an impression in debut season with Inter

Sat, 4 Nov 2017 09:01:00 PDT

The top five in Serie A are all within seven points, but will Napoli maintain their narrow lead over the rest of the pack? "He was the best signing. If he was a good player in Florence, he'll become a top player under Spalletti." Inter fans will be forgiven for thinking that&nbsp;Piero Ausilio was talking about Borja Valero&nbsp;in this quote, as the Spaniard was signed from Fiorentina in the summer and scored that beautifully-worked goal against Verona a few days ago. And how could they be wrong? Part of the reason that the Nerazzurri are sitting pretty on nine wins, two draws and no losses is the fact that they...

Ivan Perisic delivers again as Inter Milan continue impressive start

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 08:59:00 PDT

Ivan Perisic continues to deliver for Inter Milan and should be regarded as one of the best players in Serie A. Inter Milan earned a 2-1 win over Verona on Monday night, with Ivan Perisic underlining his credentials as one of Serie A's best players with the winning goal. With the home side putting in a strong shift in the first half, Inter were rather limited, only to break the deadlock when a wonderful Antonio Candreva cross found Borja Valero on 36 minutes. Verona equalised on the hour mark, when Alessio Cerci was downed by Samir Handanovic in the box. But the Nerazzurri fought back, Perisic firing a stunner...
