Inter's title challenge continues apace: Sunday saw the Nerazzurri claim their fifth win on the bounce and climb to the top of the league. Inter dominated Cagliari in their 4-0 win, creating many chances and forcing the visitor's goalkeeper into some great saves to keep the scoreline from being too embarrassing for the Sardinians. Lautaro Martinez struck twice, while Hakan Calhanoglu and Alexis Sanchez were also among the goals.
There was a Twitter poll in which fans voted for their Man of the Match and we are pleased to announce that the winner is… Calhanoglu!
Nicolo Barella, 33.2% - Started the game like a man possessed, peppering the opponents' goal with shots. He then provided two fantastic assists for Sanchez and Lautaro but was denied a goal by the magnificent Alessio Cragno.
Hakan Calhanoglu, 40.1% - The Turk got his sixth Serie A goal so far this campaign as well as another assist, whipping in a delightful corner for Lautaro to nod in.
Lautaro Martinez, 10.6% - Another headline-grabbing performance. Two goals, a missed penalty, and a yellow card. Lautaro is an all-action player. Scored the opener and Inter's final goal of the match and put in a real shift for his team.
Alexis Sanchez, 16.2% - Influential. Put Denzel Dumfries through who was then taken down for the penalty, before making it 2-0 with a sumptuous volley. Nearly had a second through a shot which hit the bar.
