    Massimiliano Allegri underlines his charges’ consistent progress after watching them see off Milan on Saturday evening at Juventus Stadium

    A clean sheet and a third consecutive league victory were particularly pleasing points for Massimiliano Allegri to pick up on after watching his men beat Milan 1-0 on Saturday evening at Juventus Stadium.

    Speaking to journalists after the game, he began: “I’m very satisfied with the attacking intent of this team, while defensively we did not give much ground away to their frontmen.

    “We need to work on the pace of our passes, while we have to be more clinical in the final third. Nevertheless, we showed great solidity at the back today, we kept a clean sheet and so I consider this another step in the right direction.”

    Asked about the motives behind changing formation at half-time, the Tuscan tactician explained: “In a 3-5-2, Alex Sandro is able to exploit his pace and willingness to roam forward even more than in a 4-4-2.

    “Meanwhile, I believe it’s important to play with three men in attacking positions and it’s true that Dybala operated effectively between the lines today. When (Roberto) Pereyra returns from injury and Hernanes reaches peak condition, we’ll be even less predictable in our build-up play.”

    Allegri finished the interview with a word on injuries sustained by Sami Khedira after playing last week with Germany and Patrice Evra, who had to be substituted during the first-half by Alex Sandro.

    “Sami’s old scar has worsened since coming back from international duty. He trained well on Thursday, was OK yesterday, but I preferred not to take any risks with him today.

    “As far as Patrice is concerned, his ankle has not been at 100 per cent for a little while now. Everyone else is on the road to recovery.”
