Atalanta are on sparkling form and fresh from a 6-2 victory away to Udinese.

Joakim Maehle joined Duvan Zapata, Rafael Toloi and Robin Gosens on the treatment table, but Remo Freuler is back after suspension.

Muriel therefore leads the attack with support from Matteo Pessina and Mario Pasalic.

There were reports Josip Ilicic would start, but he is not even on the bench and neither is Ruslan Malinovskyi, suggesting they are the players who tested positive for COVID-19 this week.

Inter were pushed to extra time on Wednesday, beating Juventus in the final seconds with substitute Alexis Sanchez to win the Supercoppa Italiana 2-1.

The Chilean impressed so much that he has earned a starting spot here in place of Lautaro Martinez, partnering Dzeko.

Danilo D’Ambrosio gets the nod rather than Stefan de Vrij in defence.

Hakan Calhanoglu missed last week’s Serie A victory over Lazio through suspension and returns to the midfield here, as Inter seek a ninth straight win in the League.

Atalanta have not beaten Inter since a 4-1 result here in November 2018, managing four draws and two defeats.

Atalanta: Musso; Djimsiti, Demiral, Palomino; De Roon, Freuler, Koopmeiners, Pezzella; Pasalic, Pessina; Muriel

Inter: Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Alexis Sanchez, Dzeko
