Mark Van Bommel has rejected claims that Milan are nervous, but insists that his side must start doing better.
The Rossoneri have drawn their last two matches in Serie A, allowing the chasing pack to close the gap at the top.
Interviewed in La Gazzetta dello Sport, Van Bommel said: "I don't know what it looks like from the outside. But on the inside we are serene.
"We know that we must keep an eye on Inter, who are a great team and are coming back into the title race. And we know that in the last two games we have lost four points too easily.
"We have to play better.
"I am very proud to have come to Milan. They are one of the best teams in the world. Everyone dreams of playing here sooner or later."
