City of Milan painted blue after a thrilling derby win by Inter

Romelu Lukaku celebrated Inter's memorable fightback against city rivals Milan on Sunday.

Antonio Conte's men demonstrated their never-say-die mentality after the Old Lady faced a shocking defeat and opened the entry to the top spot again.

Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku assured that Milan was painted blue in honour of the Nerazzurri as the Rossoneri collapsed at San Siro.

“We did really well during the second half. They played well during the first half, as we left them too much space and we struggled,” Lukaku, who netted his 17th Serie A goal of the season told Sky Sport Italia.

“However, we came out well after the interval. We completed the comeback and we're delighted with the win. I think that everyone has seen this team's mentality, we never give up and we're always looking to win.”

He accepted that he would and should have been responsible for the loss too and would face the media because his team is trying to portray his mentality and values of work, sacrifice and sweat.
