Antonio Conte has warned Maurizio Sarri that Inter Milan are dreaming of lifting the Scudetto.
One former Chelsea boss is bidding to pip another to the Serie A title, and the Nerazzurri moved above Juventus to the summit following their dramatic derby victory over AC Milan.
Inter came from two goals down to secure a thrilling 4-2 comeback win, despite falling to a 2-0 half-time deficit, as Ante Rebic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both got on the scoresheet to put Milan in control.
However, Inter hit back in the second half at San Siro.
Goals from Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku secured three crucial points.
Inter boss Conte was thrilled with his team’s resolve, coming 24 hours after Sarri – who has never won a domestic title – saw his side throw away a lead to lose in Verona.
“It was a special night, that’s for sure,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “The first half saw us in real difficulty, perhaps more than we’ve ever been this season, and there was the risk of a hammering.
“Instead, we did well to get the balance back, to understand where we had to improve, to have faith in what we were doing and the credit goes to these lads.

Aside from the result, I am happy to see them resist under blows and turn it around, as that means they are preparing for something truly important.
“It’s still very early to talk about something we can for now dream of. We can have a dream.”
Juve have won the last eight league titles but Inter are in prime position to end the Old Lady’s stranglehold in Italy.
They top the table on goal difference with 15 games remaining. The next week could prove to be pivotal in their season.
They host Napoli in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg on Wednesday before travelling to face fellow title-chasers Lazio in Serie A on Sunday.
