Inter extends unbeaten start with 3-1 win at Fiorentina

Rome, Sep 22 (AP): Inter Milan’s attack might be better off without Romelu Lukaku. The Nerazzurri are spreading the scoring around more and playing as a more cohesive unit since Lukaku left for European champion Chelsea.
Three days after a 6-1 rout of Bologna, Inter recovered from a goal down for a 3-1 away win on Tuesday over a Fiorentina side that had won three straight.
Matteo Darmian, Edin D eko and Ivan Peri ic scored for Inter after Riccardo Sottil’s opener for Fiorentina as the Serie A champion extended its unbeaten start with a fourth win in five matches.
The victory moved Inter one point above perfect Napoli atop the Italian league table, with Napoli to visit Sampdoria on Thursday.
With 18 goals in five matches, Inter has the most productive attack in the league and also the highest number of different scorers (11) virtually erasing worries about replacing the 24 league goals that Lukaku scored last season. We’ve had a great start to the season but I think we can still improve, said new Inter coach Simone Inzaghi, who was hired when Antonio Conte stepped down days after leading the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title in 11 years. We lost three key players this summer in Lukaku, (Achraf) Hakimi and (Christian) Eriksen but we’re coming together, Inzaghi added.
Inter’s third goal came after Fiorentina forward Nicol s Gonz lez was shown two yellow cards in succession for protests.
