Juventus assistant manager Angelo Alessio praised the attacking intent of his side following Saturday's 6-1 demolition of Pescara.

Fabio Quagliarella hit a hat-trick, while Arturo Vidal, Kwadwo Asamoah and Sebastian Giovinco were also on target for the visitors, as Emmanuel Cascione scored Pescara's consolation.

The win extended Antonio Conte's side's lead at the top of Serie A to four points over Inter Milan, their conquerors last week who travel to face Atalanta on Sunday night.

Juventus have scored 10 goals in their last two matches and Alessio believes Saturday's win coupled with the 4-0 hammering of FC Nordsjælland on Wednesday shows how prolific they can be in front of goal.

"Both in the cup match and this evening we played our game with intensity and attacked the opponent," he told Juventus.com.

"The approach was right. Our football is organised and unpredictable.

"These are the weapons that have characterised this team.

"Quagliarella? Fabio did well on several occasions and has now scored three goals. In this team, there are no hierarchies, Antonio simply decided who played based on who looks best in training."

The striker came off the bench during the week to score and Saturday's treble took his to tally eight for the season.

"It 's my first hat-trick and that is nice, but it was important to win," he said.

"We showed that it was a blip against Inter.

"It is now past. We worked on our mistakes and we immediately resumed (winning)."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
