Icardi has been nowhere to be seen since he was suddenly stripped of the captaincy on February 13 and promptly felt inflammation in his knee was too painful to play through.

Over almost two months, the striker has been silent, while the club tried to be diplomatic until Coach Luciano Spalletti spilt the beans on Sunday after a defeat to Lazio by stating it was “humiliating to negotiate with a player to get him to pull on the Inter jersey.”

He changed his tune again 48 hours later, confirming that not only was Icardi back in the team, but he’d be starting against Genoa in the absence of injured Lautaro Martinez and Stefan de Vrij.

Perisic and Politano are in support with Nainggolan returning from injury in the starting XI.

Genoa have already beaten the likes of Lazio and Juventus on home turf this season, but captain Domenico Criscito is suspended, so Davide Pezzella steps in to the defence.

Antonio Sanabria returns in attack with Christian Kouame after he was rested against Udinese.

Inter have a famously poor record in this fixture, losing each of their last five Serie A trips, firing blanks in four of them.

Genoa: Radu; Pereira, Romero, Zukanovic, Pezzella; Lerager, Radovanovic, Rolon, Sturaro; Sanabria, Kouame

Inter: Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, Miranda, Asamoah; Gagliardini, Brozovic; Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic; Icardi
