Inter Milan staged a stirring comeback from 2-0 down to earn a draw against Lazio at the San Siro.

Felipe Anderson controlled a cross and drove in a shot before cutting inside from the left to fire in a low strike to put Lazio two up.

Inter pulled one back through a stunning 25-yard Mateo Kovacic volley.

Rodrigo Palacio swept in an equaliser after a free-kick was nodded across the box before Inter were denied a winner when a Kovacic header was saved.

Inter manager Roberto Mancini is still without a home win since he returned to take charge of the club for a second time in early November.

And, even though his side are 11th in Serie A, their comeback will provide him with some hope of reversing the club's fortunes.

The point Lazio moved third on goal difference.
