Hero of the first half for the home side, as he denied Milito from 12 yards out with his third penalty save from seven this season. Was not seriously tested by Inter throughout the match, but will be disappointed with conceding twice at the end.
Was focused and disciplined in his defending, and did well to mark Forlan out of the game. Also able to cut out a fair number of through balls and generally held his own at the back for the hosts.
Did not venture forward much, but was solid in his own half of the field, and was not overly troubled by the likes of Poli.
Led one or two hopeful charges for Chievo on the counter that ultimately amounted to nothing. However, the presence of Maicon on his flank always meant that his task was primarily a defensive one.
His somewhat unfortunate handball led to the concession of the early penalty, but Sorrentino spared his blushed. Attempted to make up for it thereafter with some great blocks and no nonsense clearances as Chievo defended in numbers. A superb tackle to rob Maicon from point blank range sealed his recovery.
Had a few encouraging sequences in the opening period as Chievo were better able to maintain possession. However, after the break, most of his time was spent providing extra cover in his own half.
Worked hard all game in plugging the gaps in midfield, sometimes doubling up as an extra defender when the Inter pressure reached a breaking point.
Did not lack effort as he toiled diligently in assisting his team-mates in the centre of the park. However, as a result he was often bypassed on the flanks by Maicon, who did not have much trouble getting a step on the American.
Forgettable night, as he was simply unable to find the time, space or support to make anything happen. Taken off on the hour mark.
One or two encouraging touches, but was largely ineffective as he failed to gel with his team-mates in the rare occasions that Chievo looked to attack.
Turned Lucio with ease on one of the rare chances for the hosts, but could not beat Julio Cesar with his finish. Otherwise, found the pickings as slim as the rest of his team-mates.
Apart from a smart stop from Pellissier with his legs near the end of the first half, the Brazilian was never tested and went on to record a comfortable clean sheet.
Largely quiet and untroubled at the back, but suffered a scare when Pellissier beat him with ease to gain a clear sight on goal.
Matched Bradley stride for stride as the workhorse in midfield, and picked his moments to go forward well. Sealed a committed display by sending a fantastic ball for Milito to head home the clincher.
At times, looked a rampaging threat as his pace and power down the right was too much for Chievo to handle. His deliveries were on point all game long and his marauding, penetrating play caused the defence no end of trouble.
Strong and resilient, the Argentine was quick to snuff out the danger whenever Chievo got forward. Rounded off his performance with the all-important go-ahead goal, heading home Sneijder’s corner with three minutes to go.
Started the match brightly, with his small frame proving difficult to track on the overlap, but could not keep up with the exploits of Maicon on the opposite flank, and faded as the game wore on.
Sent a well taken volley just over the bar in the first half, and was decent but not dominant in midfield. Was also a little testy, with a harsh challenge on Rigoni lucky to escape a booking.
Misplaced some passes, but overall his performance was one of the key changes in Inter's fortunes as his energy added so much in midfield and his battling style got the Nerazzurri out of a number of tight spots.
Exerted sufficient pressure in the attacking third of the field, and was unlucky to see a brilliant effort from the corner of the box hit the crossbar. His passing laid on a few promising chances for his team-mates, while his set pieces became more and more threatening as the game progressed, culminating in the assist from a corner for Samuel’s goal.
Isolated for most of the contest, and spurned his one good chance by sidefooting a Maicon cross wide from a great position. Hauled off with 20 minutes to go to end another disappointing outing.
Fluffed his lines from the penalty spot as his spot kick was hit straight down the middle, allowing Sorrentino to save. Showed a fair amount of attacking endeavour thereafter, finding space by pulling into the channels, and eventually made amends at the death, heading in Zanetti’s cross to make the points safe.

Given a 13 minute run out but failed to make his mark on the game.

Energetic as always, but failed to make his mark in his 20 minutes on the pitch.
