After three games without a win against Lazio, Milan, and Gladbach, Inter claimed all three points versus Genoa at the weekend.

Andrea Ranocchia (9.6), who had not played since July, was restored to the starting XI on Saturday and excelled in the middle of the defence. As well as recording an assist, he was outstanding on the ball, completing 91/94 passes, while his defensive work was solid.

It wasn't a vintage weekend for goalkeepers as the best of the lot was Andrea Consigli who scored a 7.2 FC Rating for Sassuolo.

Berat Gjimshiti (7.8), Vlad Chiriches (7.7), and Danilo D'Ambrosio (8.6) make up the rest of the back four alongside Ranocchia.

Fiorentina won 3-2 against Udinese with Gaetano Castrovilli (9.3) contributing to all three goals via two goals scored himself plus an assist.

The third Sassuolo player to make the line-up is midfielder Filip Djuricic (8.6) who scored one and set up another in the 3-3 draw with Torino.

Also superb in that match was Andrea Belotti (8.8), who leads the line after scoring one and assisting another against Sassuolo this time.

Stefano Okaka (8.9) was unlucky to be on the losing side for Udinese against Fiorentina as he scored both of their consolation goals.

Atalanta may have been the victim of a surprise defeat against Sampdoria, but Josip Ilicic (8.7) was still in magical form.
