I have a say

Davide Santon may start his first game of the season for Inter on Friday evening against Genoa, according to

The full-back has made a series of appearances off the bench in Serie A and the Champions League, but has yet to be given a start by coach Rafael Benitez from the first whistle after spending a majority of the previous season on the sidelines due to injury.

The highly-rated starlet is the favourite to fill in for Cristian Chivu, who picked up an injury in the 1-1 draw with Sampdoria on Sunday. Veteran Ivan Cordoba is also a possibility, but the player is not a natural full-back like Santon.

Meanwhile, striker Diego Milito could make a second-half appearance against his former club after being called up for the first time since the October 3 tie with Juventus.

The Nerazzurri sit in third place in Serie A with 15 points from eight matches.

Probable Inter starting XI (4-2-3-1): Julio Cesar; Maicon, Lucio, Samuel, Santon; Zanetti, Cambiasso; Pandev, Sneijder, Coutinho; Eto'o.
