Inter lead Serie A with 35 points, two points ahead of second-placed Juventus after 14 matches. The loss is another setback for Napoli's hopes of retaining the title as they now trail Inter by 11 points. They are in fifth spot level on 24 points with AS Roma who are fourth.

Earlier, AS Roma came from a goal down to secure a 2-1 win at 10-man Sassuolo as defender Rasmus Kristensen scored late after Paulo Dybala had levelled with a penalty for Jose Mourinho's side.
