Muriel always had potential, even back in his Udinese days

Took a while for him to get anywhere close to it, was a nearly man for so many years

First club he's averaging well over a goal every other game. Mainly went at around 1 in 4 elsewhere aside from where he started out in Colombia
He is equal 3rd in goals even though he mostly comes off the bench.
It is impressive and maybe a bit surprising he is stepping up to have more responsibility given his past, even ilicic's form has waned of late but Muriel is the one who creates the most chances.

The Lukaku-Lautaro partnership getting better every game, could very well be the difference in the title race. Inter's second goal was all class, wonderful team move.

They also gotta thank Handanovic though, a series of great saves to deny Ibra and Tonali when it was only 1-0.
Lukaku one of the best forwards undoubtedly in the world right now.

Lewa, Haaland, Mbappe are probably the only people I would take in front of him on today's form. (Probably missed a few others but my point still stands.)

Well the last flicker of hope was extinguished this morning. Pretty evident that this current squad isn’t capable of getting it done so need to start planning for the future

Finally Pirlo plays a 4-3-3 as opposed to a hybrid formation that opens up too many weaknesses. Danilo to CDM was a move he should have made earlier as well.

I only saw the highlight but Chiesa looked really good. This formation would suit him and Kulusevski a lot better I'd imagine.

Definitely suits both of them to have a fullback overlapping and providing word that so he has more freedom to cut inside.

Thought I'd never see the day Benevento knock off Juve in Turin - truly a horror season for them.

Back to back wins for Napoli away to Milan and Roma! Pleasing run of form at the moment, Demme, Fabian and Zielinksi have been important as a cohesive midfield unit.

Big win for Benevento in the relegation fight too.

Atalanta had a back 4 of toloi, Romero, Palomino, djimsiti with their wingbacks out.
Zapata and Malinovski were dominant in the first half for their win 2-0 over Verona.

Good to notch up another win. Form is good aside from the Inter blip (and of course the CL)

Played solidly against inter too, but yeah their league form was worrying a couple of months ago when Lazio were on a run, but have a been consistenly good of late

Ronaldo a little more hungry than usual today, a couple the better option to pass rather than try silly angles.
And chiesa going down like that trying to win a pen, they were pretty desperate.
Handbags in the changerooms afterwards apparently, a lot of pressure on Pirlo.

Pretty poor result especially the manner in which the Benevento player scored where he got a tasty assist from Arthur.

Loss to Juve in Turin overnight makes our top 4 hopes slightly dented now but still only 2 pts behind Atalanta with 9 games to go. Our mentality in big games in question again under Gattuso, we got the attacking talent so it's frustrating to see us look to "not lose" rather go for the win from minute 1.

Inter only a few more wins away now until they officially clinch the title.

In the relegation battle Cagliari came from 3-1 down to defeat Parma 4-3 with 2 goals in injury time. The result is nearly the final nail in Parma’s hopes of survival

Very real chance of missing out on a CL and turning into a disastrous season. Some heads willl need to roll
