Stevan Jovetic, Inter Milan forward has said he is surprised Inter is topping the table, but chalks it up to them being hungry.
Jovetic joined up with his former manager, Roberto Mancini after two injury plagued seasons with Manchester City.
And Jovetic believes the new crop of players, has helped Inter to their current success.
“I was convinced that we would have a good start, but not like this,” he told Corriere dello Sport.
“We are first because we have a lot of hunger. Compared to other teams that have played together for several years we have so many new elements.
“But all players are giving their best for the team with the intention to give the coach difficult choices.
“I do not see a single favourite but four or five teams can fight until the end for the title. I refer to Juventus, Inter, Roma, Fiorentina and Napoli.”
