The head coach also complimented Mertens on his return to scoring ways

Maurizio Sarri has revealed how he was delighted with the reaction of his players after they conceded early on against Bologna this afternoon.

"We conceded after just a few seconds and our shape wasn't right at the start," the coach began. "Nevertheless, the team were then able to reorganise and the response to going down was unerring.

"We had good structure in the second half and controlled the game. Overall, I'm pleased with the performance. I'm also happy for Dries, because he went through a slight drop in form before the international break, which is due to the fact he's been playing for practically three months straight. He just needed a short break to get back to his sparkling best.

"It's understandable today was a high-risk game because we had ten days of hard work after coming back and a knock-on effect from that is to be expected. Even still, the lads were able the tempo high for the whole match."

Once again, Napoli matched Juventus' result in the weekend's early kick-off yesterday.

"I repeat that I find it confusing we've had to play after Juventus nine times, but I'm also aware that Juve have the potential to win every game they play.

"We must focus solely on ourselves. Playing attractive football is all we know and it's the only way forward to win something big. If we're organised, we're solid, but we have no other way to express ourselves."
