December 6, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
There was another twist to the tale in Serie A with the weekend's results inspiring a number of changes at the top of table.

Another round of Serie A fixtures saw results from different match centres altering the shape of the league's table. Ahead of the gameweek, one of the biggest talking points revolved around Jose Mourinho's return to Inter Milan as the Portuguese coach looked to turn things around for his struggling AS Roma side.

However, it was not the reunion that he or many may have envisaged with the Nerrazzuri proving to be too much to handle for the Italian capital outfit. First half goals by Hakan Calhanoglu, Edin Dzeko and Denzel Dumfries did the damage for the visitors as the hosts saw their top-four aspirations take another hit.

Elsewhere, Atalanta facilitated Napoli's demotion from the No.1 position with a 3-2 win at ​​Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. AC Milan captalize on the turn of events to climb to the summit of the table with a 2-0 win over Salernitana while Juventus inched closer to the top four by beating Genoa 2-0.
