Nicolo Barella got the second in specular fashion when his perfect volley from the edge of the area on a Hakan Calhanoglu pass, flew to the back of the net.
Cremonese best chance to pull one back in the second half fell to Dessers after Okereke located him with a pass inside the box, only for the Belgian-born forward to attempt an overhead kick when he should use his head.
Cremonese manager however decided to withdraw the 27-year-old forward a few minutes after the miss.
Barrela then provided the assist for Inter Milan’s third scored by substitute Lautaro Martinez, before Okereke later grabbed a consolation for the visitors with a beautiful curler.
