Roma coach Rudi Garcia was happy with his side's performance despite going down 2-1 to Internazionale on Saturday.
It is Roma's fourth defeat of the season as they continue to struggle ahead of the last part of the season.
And the Frenchman urged his players to shift their focus to Wednesday's away game against Sassuolo.
"I believe a draw would have been more logical considering the game," Garcia said.
"But we know that at such high quality level games can be decided at any moment. In the first part of the game we failed to impose our game but we improved in the second, restoring parity and pushing to win.
"But in the end, unfortunately, we conceded and lost the game.
"I have nothing to say on the hungriness to win or the spirit of the squad especially because we don't have time to complain with Sassuolo coming up on Wednesday.
"We made mistakes in defence, especially when we conceded the second but all in all it was a good performance, nothing to do with our last game at home against Atalanta.
"Internazionale are quality, they possess strikers who could score at any moment but we could have done better defensively.
"We now have to look forward, we play again in four days and we need the same grit and determination showed tonight [against Sassuolo].
"But we also have to improve in our own half and in the opposition's half. Nothing is lost yet but we have to win on Wednesday."
