A spectator for long portions of the match, but alert when called upon, like when Hetemaj struck low in the first half. By no means a bad game from the Brazilian, merely one in which he was not needed.
A stand-out display from Inter's Brazilian full-back. He looked like the Maicon of old, full of superb offensive thrusts without giving away anything at the back.
Probably the least impressive performer from the Inter back line. Had a poor second half where Moscardelli and Jokic easily flew past him with regularity.
The Brazilian centre-back made his usual attacking forays and did well to snuff out much of the danger that came his way. He kept the likes of Pellissier quiet, which is never an easy job.
A rather typical performance from Inter's captain: full of running, always looking to harass the opposition, and a calm head no matter what the situation.
After complaining recently that he should be played in the centre, Ranieri duly moved him to his preferred position, where he formed a solid partnership with Lucio and kept the side's second clean sheet of the season.
The difference maker. His header was a combination of precision and power, and he completely left Michael Bradley in his wake numerous times in the box.
Aside from Maicon, perhaps Inter's best player. His creativity can seem limitless at times and his assist on the goal was inch perfect.
The Argentine did his job as needed, preventing Chievo from advancing too far up the pitch.
A very quiet display from the frontman who did not get as much service as he would have liked.
An impressive first half from the on-loan Lazio man in what was perhaps his best display since joining Inter. An offensive threat whenever he had the ball, he finally looks to be settling in.
Deserved to be on the winning side; made a great save from Sneijder's free kick and left stranded by Bradley on the goal.
Did well to keep Nagatomo quiet, unlike his full-back partner who struggled so much with Maicon. Did not add much to the attack, however.
Left for dead on numerous occasions by Maicon, whom he simply had no answer for. Somewhat lucky that the Brazilian did not end up on the scoresheet.
The centre-back had a reasonably solid match and could have recorded a clean sheet had it not been for the corner that led to the goal, for which he was blameless.
Cut out a superb through-ball in the 22nd minute and did well to control the likes of Pazzini for large portions of the match along with his partner Morero.
The attacking midfielder did well to try and push forward whenever possible, and had a notable start to the second half, but was ultimately ineffective in linking the midfield and attack.
The left sided midfielder was probably Chievo's best attacking outlet in the first half, and even took on Maicon at times in the second, but couldn't get the better of the Brazilian.
At fault for the goal and was overpowered by Motta multiple times in the box. Otherwise a decent display in midfield but ultimately cost his side.
Struggled to support his side in attack and failed to add enough width to his team. A lively figure but in the wrong places.
The captain did what he could with the very little of the ball that he saw, but ultimately could not get on the scoresheet in what was a subdued outing.
A rather anonymous display from the on-loan AC Milan striker who simply could not influence the match at all.
- 17 C. Puggioni
- 5 D. Mandelli
- 3 M. Andreolli
A very late substitute that could not get into the match with the 12 or so minutes he was given.
- 7 P. Sammarco
Came on to replace Hetemaj but despite the extra striker up top, Chievo still failed to cause a threat.
A lively display from the substitute who tried to make a difference and nearly snatched a goal in the 90th minute.
