Inter stick with their tried and tested formula against Fiorentina tonight, who look to Giuseppe Rossi and Joaquin.

Both sides have had a great start to the season, locked together on 10 points from four rounds.

Walter Mazzarri said this week he had no need to change a winning side and once again picks the 3-5-1-1 system with Ricky Alvarez supporting Rodrigo Palacio.

Saphir Taider gets the nod ahead of Mateo Kovacic in midfield with Jonathan and Yuto Nagatomo attacking wing-backs.

Diego Milito is on the bench after marking his comeback from seven months out with a brace in the 7-0 demolition of Sassuolo.

Fiorentina are forced into a few changes, as Mario Gomez and Juan Guillermo Cuadrado are injured, while David Pizarro can’t face his former club due to suspension.

Borja Valero runs the midfield with Massimo Ambrosini and Alberto Aquilani, while Joaquin and Mati Fernandez club together to support Rossi.

The Viola will have even more reason to do well, as today is the 48th birthday of President Andrea Della Valle.

Inter: Handanovic; Campagnaro, Ranocchia, Juan Jesus; Jonathan, Guarin, Cambiasso, Taider, Nagatomo; Alvarez; Palacio

Fiorentina: Neto; Tomovic, Rodriguez, Savic, Pasqual; Borja Valero, Ambrosini, Aquilani; Joaquin, Mati Fernandez; Rossi
