Allegri: Juve in ‘peak condition’

‘I don’t need new players’ – Lampard happy with team despite transfer ban

Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri says his team are back to their best after a 4-0 victory over Udinese at Stadio Communale Friuli on Sunday.

Paulo Dybala scored twice along with Sami Khedira and Alex Sandro as the Bianconeri recorded their 10th consecutive Serie A victory.

"Winning again today was a very good sign, as we've only played twice in Turin in recent weeks," Allegri said.

"Credit to the players for the excellent run that we're on, but we ought not pay too much attention to that, because what matters is being in front on 16 May."

Having won the Scudetto for the past four seasons, the Old Lady made a lethargic start to the current campaign, but having returned to form they are now second in the standings, just two points behind league leaders Napoli.

"After last term's efforts, there was always a risk of needing some time to reach peak condition for the current campaign," Allegri continued.

"There were also some unfortunate incidents, for example the draw with Frosinone, when we conceded from their only corner kick. It was, however, almost predictable that such things occurred in that period, as we were all taking too many things for granted."
