Milan Skriniar and Ivan Perisic were on target for Inter, who finished seventh last season, as Luciano Spalletti's side survived a hard second half to make it four wins out of four.

Inter's attacking trio failed to click into top gear, with Icardi a peripheral figure throughout, as Crotone finished the stronger against the disappointing Nerazzurri.
