Roberto Mancini: We need time to find the right formula for the side


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says the objective is still to finish the season in the top three.

The Nerazzurri have dropped to fourth in the table on goal average after Saturday's 1-1 draw away at Palermo.

And they will be eager to get back to winning terms when they face Bologna on Tuesday night.

"We knew that Roma, Napoli and Lazio always do well and would be back up the top of the table soon enough," Mancini said.

"We need to try and stay up there. Our goal is to remain in those first positions – nothing serious has happened, there are five sides separated by two points.

"We need time to find the right formula for the side.

"Apart from the Fiorentina game, we've conceded three goals in eight matches, so the solidity is there. Our problems come when we're missing one centre-half and then another one is suspended.

"If we play with two central midfielders we'll need our wingers to pitch in defensively.

"I'm not sure if Biabiany has 60-65 minutes in him. He can't play at 100% for the whole match but he's an important player for us. Medel, Ranocchia and Juan Jesus are the three options to come in for Murillo.

"Ljajic is doing well – he's quick, has a good shot on him, knows where the goal is and can give us a hand. Palacio is available."
