Max Allegri feels Milan are still the favourites to win the Scudetto this season despite seeing their lead at the top cut to just three points.
A second consecutive draw, this time away to Genoa on Sunday, has prompted some critics within the Italian media to suggest Milan are having a wobble.
"It's true that Inter are making up ground and getting back all their players," Allegri said.
"However, we are still top and for now favourites in the race for the Scudetto.
"It can happen that you draw games that you deserve to win and win others that you deserve to lose.
"Teams can sometimes have a dip. But as of now Milan are Semi-Finalists in the Coppa Italia and are also through to the second round of the Champions League, which seems more than positive to me."
