Claudio Ranieri felt both Inter and Roma deserved praise for their epic tussle, but strength in depth made the difference.
“We played a very good game and the incidents went against us,” he said of the 5-3 defeat at San Siro.
“Inter deserve compliments for their performance, but so do we, as we reacted and tried to get a difficult situation back on track.
“What we lacked was consistency in the pace of our football. It is a very physical Inter side, so it was the only way to beat them.
