Juventus have piled up 46 points in 48 games, after getting a 1-0 Derby della Mole win over Torino, though a brilliant Arkadiusz Milik freekick kept Napoli eight points behind, as the Partenopei won at Cagliari.

Inter also kept up with the top two, beating Udinese thanks to Mauro Icardi, whilst Lazio lost at Atalanta, and AC Milan could only manage a goalless draw at lowly Bologna.

Roma got back to winning ways with a superb comeback against Genao, while both Fiorentina and Sassuolo nabbed three points in their respective matches.

Our Team of the Week will see the usual 3-4-3 system deployed. Let us know your thoughts!

Alban Lafont – Fiorentina
A decisive super save in the second half to deny Francesco Caputo’s goal, as well as a game free of mistakes.

Mattia Bani – Chievo
A solid performance throughout against SPAL, helping Chievo to maintain the clean sheet and bring home the fifth consecutive draw. Solid.

Stefan de Vrij – Inter (2 Team of the Week appearances)
A wall, put simply. Add to that his ability to play out from the back, and you have one of the most complete defenders around. He showed it yet again against Udinese.

Gianluca Mancini – Atalanta (4 apps)
Another tremendously solid performance in a vital game for La Dea.

Dennis Praet – Sampdoria
Two assists to pave the way to Sampdoria’s win over Parma.

Alfred Duncan – Sassuolo (3 apps)
All round performance, functioning as a phenomenal box to box midfielder, with the icing on the cake of the cross that lead to the Frosinone own goal and the assist for Domenico Berardi’s finish.

Bryan Cristante – Roma (3 apps)
Another decisive goal, as well as a solid performance: he is starting to show the qualities we admired at Atalanta. Can he keep it up?

Fabian Ruiz – Napoli (4 apps)
What a complete player. This time round he was in the hole behind Milik, providing quality throughout and almost getting on the scoresheet.

Duvan Zapata – Atalanta (2 apps)
The decisive, crucial goal against Lazio, as well as giving the Biancocelesti backline a nightmare of an evening.

Arkadiusz Milik – Napoli (3 apps)
A pinpoint perfect free kick to give Napoli the three points with another last minute winner.

Kevin Mirallas – Fiorentina
If Fiorentina got back to winning a match after eight games a lot of merit goes to the former Everton man: scored the equaliser, connected attack and midfield, hardly ever made the wrong decision.
