El Bilal Toure will be unavailable for Atalanta when they welcome Inter on Saturday. The 22-year-old center-forward is nursing a hamstring injury. The injury he suffered on August 17th has kept him out of Atalanta’s last 13 matches.
Atalanta will also be without center-back Jose Luis Palomino, with the 33-year-old recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered on October 22nd. The defender has been out for the last 7 matches for Atalanta.
Apart from the two injuries, Atalanta have not reported any new injury worries ahead of their home match against Inter.
Summer signing Marko Arnautovic has not attained his fitness to feature for Inter. The San Siro side will be without the 34-year-old striker when they travel to Atalanta on Saturday. The center-forward is out with a hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined since September 24th. He is expected back by the middle of November.
Juan Cuadrado is also an injury doubt ahead of the weekend action. The summer arrival from Juventus is dealing with an Achilles tendon irritation he suffered on October 12th, thus keeping him out for the last three Inter matches.
Simone Inzaghi will be happy with the squad news because only these two are unavailable for selection for their trip to Atalanta.
J. Musso; S. Kolasinac, B. Djimsiti, G. Scalvini; M. Ruggeri, Ederson, M. de Roon, H. Hateboer; T. Koopmeiners; G. Scamacca, A. Lookman

Atalanta were dynamic and devastating in their 3-0 win away to Empoli. Their back three was dynamic and full of runners from deep and progressive passers in the middle of the pack.
The two midfielders offered a robust base for solidity, while the three attackers had the freedom to move the ball quickly and put the opponent’s defense under pressure.
Their approach will remain the same when they welcome Inter on Saturday. They will be robust in their approach with aggressive pressing and fast attacks.
Inter will also look to be dynamic in their approach against Atalanta. They will know that Atalanta will pose a strong test for them as they look to hang on to their top-spot on the Serie A log.
Solidity will be required to contain the fast attackers of Atalanta and their dynamic attacking play.
Inter will have too much for Atalanta, they will win and take the three points on offer.
