Inter Milan picked up a 4-0 win over Genoa in the Serie A earlier today and new manager Simone Inzaghi will be delighted with the showing from his players.

Goals from Milan Skriniar, Hakan Calhanoglu, Arturo Vidal and Edin Dzeko sealed the victory for the home side.

Here at Anytime football, we look at the three major talking points from tonight’s contest.

Signings have hit the ground running

Inter Milan signed the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu and Edin Dzeko in the summer and both players started extremely well for the defending champions.

Calhanoglu was undoubtedly one of the best players on the pitch today. He picked up an exceptional assist before scoring a stunning goal.

Meanwhile, Edin Dzeko picked up an assist and scored a goal for Inter as well. He was brought in to replace star striker Romelu Lukaku and the Bosnian delivered.

Simone Inzaghi’ tactics

The newly appointed Inter Milan manager could not have asked for a better performance from his players.

The Inter Milan squad did extremely well to adapt to his new tactics and perform at a high level against Genoa today.

Inzaghi will be optimistic about winning silverware, given the opening day display from his team.

Exceeding expectations

Inter Milan had a chaotic summer transfer window of the pitch and they had to cash in on key players like Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku.

It is natural that the Italian champions would be weakened but they showed no signs of a dip and performed at a high level at home today.
