Luciano Spalletti needs a victory to put the Champions League exit disappointment behind them and last week’s 1-0 win over Udinese thanks to a late Icardi penalty was not enough to boost confidence.

Nainggolan returns to the starting XI after his injury lay-off, supporting Icardi with Perisic and Matteo Politano.

Kwadwo Asamoah sits out a ban, with Matias Vecino and Joao Miranda on the treatment table, so Sime Vrsaljko and Danilo D’Ambrosio take the full-back roles.

Chievo are bottom of the table, having started with a three-point penalty due to financial irregularities, and are the only club in Europe’s top five leagues still without a single victory this season.

However, they have found some stability under third Coach of the campaign Di Carlo and have put together five consecutive Serie A stalemates.

Ivan Radovanovic is suspended, while Fabrizio Cacciatore and Manuel Pucciarelli have injury issues.

Veteran Sergio Pellissier continues to lead the attack with Riccardo Meggiorini and Emanuele Giaccherini.

Chievo have lost each of their last three Serie A meetings with Inter, including a 5-0 result here last season.
