    “We're sorry to lose but it shouldn't change anything for us. Sometimes things go for you in football and sometimes they don't”

    On with the next one. That was Massimiliano Allegri's message for Juventus after a disappointing night at San Siro.

    “We're sorry to leave Milan with a defeat but we mustn't let it affect us – we have to get our heads straight down and start preparing for the next game,” the boss stressed in his post-match media duties.

    The coach nonetheless offered a careful analysis of the contest, arguing that his side by no means played badly.

    “We'd managed to get a grip on the game and that wasn't easy because Milan have been playing brilliantly and they have lots of interesting youngsters – [Manuel] Locatelli's goal and [Gianluigi] Donnarumma's save at the death are perfect examples of that.

    “When we had [Paulo] Dybala on the pitch we had a man in between the lines, then [Juan] Cuadrado came on and he offers a different set of skills but we still managed to control the game.

    “We tried to press them high and I think we played well in that sense. We kept things tidy and physically we looked good too.

    “What we didn't do was score, of course. They only had two shots on goal through Suso and Locatelli but sometimes things go for you in football and sometimes they don't.”

    Much of the talk will be about Miralem Pjanic's disallowed goal which, had it stood, would have made for a different game but Allegri insisted refused to dwell on the matter.

    “We thought the goal should have stood. It's a shame because nobody seemed to know what was going on for a while but there's no point getting worked up about it now. We just need to focus on winning again.”

    On with the next one, then.
