Inter Milan have had their perfect start to the Serie A season come to an end as they fell to a surprise 2-1 loss at home to Sassuolo.

Inter were looking to make it six wins out of six and remain the only unbeaten side remaining in Italy's top flight.

Denzel Dumfries fired the hosts in front on the stroke of halftime but two goals in nine second-half minutes -- including a stunner from Domenico Berardi -- gave Sassuolo another impressive win on Wednesday night, following their 4-2 victory over Juventus at the weekend.

The result left Inter level on 15 points at the top of the table with city rivals AC Milan after United States international Christian Pulisic helped the Rossoneri to a 3-1 victory over Cagliari.

Noah Okafor and Ruben Loftus-Cheek netted their first Serie A goals, both set up by Pulisic, as the new signings took charge.

Fikayo Tomori also scored after Zito Luvumbo gave Cagliari a surprise lead in the 29th minute.

Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen put off-field dramas behind him as he scored to help Napoli beat Udinese 4-1.

The 24-year-old got Napoli's second goal of the night with a precise shot into the far bottom corner near the end of the first half.

Osimhen, who was cheered by the fans before the match in a show of support, is considering legal action against his club after they posted a video mocking his penalty miss at the weekend.

Napoli were awarded another spot kick on Wednesday, in the 19th minute. This time Piotr Zielinski stepped up and converted.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia netted his first goal of the season in the second half and Giovanni Simeone also scored for Napoli, seconds after Lazar Samardzic had pulled one back for Udinese.

Elsewhere, promoted Empoli got their first goal and points back in Serie A with Tommaso Baldanzi's strike helped them beat Salernitana 1-0, Atalanta won 1-0 at Hellas Verona and Lazio beat Torino 2-0.
