​Massimiliano Allegri was full of praise for his Juventus side after they dispatched Sassuolo 3-0 on Sunday evening and commended a number of players after the victory.

Goals from Sami Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo and Emre Can extended Juventus's unbeaten league record and increased their lead at the top of Serie A to a seemingly insurmountable 11 points.

It wasn't all plain sailing for ​Juventus and they had to rely on Wojciech Szczesny to bail them out early on, but Allegri was more than happy with the way I Bianconeri performed - especially as they were up against a side who have caused some of the league's front runners significant issues this season.

"Sassuolo’s game is heavily based on their deep-lying midfielder circulating the ball,” Allegri explained, as per ​Juventus' club website.

“They’re one of the teams with the most possession in their own half in the league. We had a risk early on that Szczesny dealt with, but after a quarter of an hour we started to play. 

"They were struggling to cope with Bernardeschi in the hole - he was playing well and they couldn’t read his passes. We didn’t concede and we created lots of chances."

Allegri also had time to discuss the impact of substitutes ​Paulo Dybala, Rodrigo Bentancur and ​Can, all of whom played a significant role in securing the victory in the later stages of game.


“Dybala did well when he came on, so did Can and Bentancur,” he declared.

“To play like this, everyone needs to contribute, but we should also compliment the team for how they dealt with the game.”
