Massimiliano Allegri on the win, Llorente's goal and Pereyra's injury


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was delighted to see his side get back on winning terms.

The Bianconeri eased past Palermo on Sunday afternoon as they open up a three-point gap at the top of the Italian Serie A.

"I am satisfied with the result although we should have done better in the first half," Allegri told Mediaset Premium.

"[The three-point gap at the top] is important, but they are just three points, there's still a long way to go.

"Surely it's not today's three-point gap that will make the difference.

"I believe we lost a little bit of pace in the last two weeks, we have to be quicker when on the ball. We should also be careful not to be caught cold on the counter.

"[Andrea] Pirlo had a good 65 minutes of football, he played 60 minutes on Wednesday and 70 today, he's improving, both physically and mentally.

"[Fernando] Llorente was the only one without goals so I'm happy he scored, all of us are.

"For a striker the goal is vital but let's not forget he works a lot for the team.

"Pereyra was replaced because of a hip problem, he tried until the very end.

"I wanted Lichtsteiner to rest since he played a lot. As for Romulo, he's back but he's still not 100% yet."
