With their local rivals in action later Sunday, Inter knew a win would see them go top, if only temporarily

Lautaro Martinez’s first hat-trick for Inter Milan helped his side crush Crotone 6-2, earning their eighth successive Serie A win and sending Antonio Conte’s team top of the standings above AC Milan.

With their local rivals in action later Sunday, Inter knew a win would see them go top, if only temporarily, but it was not looking promising as second-bottom Crotone took a shock 12th minute lead through Niccolo Zanellato.

However, Romelu Lukaku sent strike partner Martinez through to level eight minutes later, before an own goal from Luca Marrone put Inter in front. 

A Vladimir Golemic penalty then levelled things up once again.

Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku was named the UEFA Europa League player of the season for 2019-20 after the Belgian forward led the Italian side to the final with goals in every knockout round.

With the quality Inter possess up front, it was only a matter of time until they put Crotone to the sword in the second half, with Martinez brilliantly giving Inter the lead in the 57th minute before Lukaku added another seven minutes later.

Martinez completed his first Inter hat-trick 12 minutes from time, before Achraf Hakimi put the icing on the cake with a late sixth to put Inter top on 36 points, two clear of Milan and seven clear of Roma, who also play later Sunday.

Crotone remain 19th with just two league wins all season.
