Matteo Darmian scored Inter’s second goal in the second half after Lukaku utilized their first chance in the first half. Alexis Sanchez scored the third after coming off the bench.
“We’re first in the standings and it’s a good feeling,” said Lukaku as Inter Milan push to win the Serie A title after finishing second last season.
Inter Milan came into this match after having beaten Milan 3-0 in the last weekend’s derby. They are unbeaten in their last five consecutive games.
“We’re happy because our hard work is paying off,” said Antonio Conte.
“We know that there are 14 games left. Let’s keep our antennas up until the end if we want to do something good.”
Romelu Lukaku is in good form as he has netted six goals in the five games.
“I’m in a good moment of my career but the important thing is that Inter win,” added the former Man Utd player.
“These matches are opportunities for us to give signals to others, but the championship is long.”
Antonio Conte is committed to leading Inter Milan to win their first league title since the year 2010.
