Lautaro Martinez, game changer for Inter. Against Chelsea in second half...
We are not even in August and it is still too early to make any sort of judgement or assessment. But the clues are all there, more and more after each game. Lautaro Martinez is a game changer, he did against Chelsea. Without him, Inter had zero shots on goal in the first half. With him, there were four. His presence was greatly felt on the field even if he did not score a goal. Luciano Spalletti smiles deep down inside because he knows that he has in his hands a rough diamond that already shines every time he steps on the field. When Lautaro Martinez is able to concentrate all his energy inside the penalty area, he will be a massive problem for the opponents.
Right now, Il Toro is focusing on everything, sometimes perhaps too much, in the sense that it amazes us to see him tackling an opponent on the sideline. Against Chelsea, he changed Inter. In the second half, he came on to play a few steps behind Icardi, the encore of what was seen in Sheffield, and he completely turned the game around for Spalletti, making life difficult for the defenders of Sarri. Not only that: Lautaro also managed to stop Jorginho from starting the action, typical of Sarri’s team. With Icardi, their understanding continues to improve, it is like going to school and study a new language, the language of Italian football.
But there is one thing that he, or rather, Spalletti, needs to figure it out: his position, trequartista or as a first forward. He is very good at protecting the ball, but the jewel arrived in the box in the 91st minute and almost scored a great goal. Lautaro is taking over Inter, this is a fact.
