Commenting upon their latest 2-0 win over Cagliari, Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, stated:

[Alvaro] Morata struggled somewhat when the opposition shut up shop. That’s why I moved Kean into the centre-forward position, so he could attack the penalty box more and Morata also benefited from that. In terms of our attributes, we don’t have that many goals in midfield, but the most likely goalscorers are [Weston] McKennie and [Adrien] Rabiot. In certain situations, Adrien could’ve hurt them more. We need to work harder to make the most of certain moves.

I asked the players to take plenty of long-range shots tonight. Bernardeschi did so with real venom and got his goal. We went on a good run after the first three games. We know January will be an intense month. I’d be happy to reach the end of February with this gap to the top four, as that’ll mean we’ve got through the clashes with direct rivals and we’ll then have a more favourable schedule ahead of us. We’ll keep working hard”.
