Nerazzurri come from behind to clinch all three points.
Inter Milan battled back to secure a 2-1 win over Fiorentina at San Siro on Thursday night, with the three points moving them back into second place.
The hosts fell behind in a highly entertaining game, with Giuseppe Rossi continuing his impressive form in front of goal with his sixth goal in six games in all competitions.
However, it only served to force Walter Mazzarri’s men into action as Esteban Cambiasso levelled matters before wing-back Jonathan secured the win.
With no European distractions this season, the Nerazzurri have been tipped to have a successful season under their new coach, who appears to have instilled both organisation and confidence back into the players.
In contrast, it was another setback for the Viola who had hoped to continue their strong start to the season with the scalp of a rival.
However, it wasn’t to be for Vincenzo Montella who perhaps will be made to rue the decision not to further strengthen the defensive line over the summer.
