Roma coach Rudi Garcia says he knew his players were going to respond to the mid-week Champions League defeat against Bate Borisov.
The Giallorossi battled their way past Palermo on Sunday afternoon to move up to third in the table.
They will face Empoli at home when the Serie A resumes on October 17.
"I had no doubts we would respond," Garcia said.
"Although at times we lack consistency, the team has always shown they can play well. This will help us in the future to play a full match with no let-ups.
"I work to improve this team. You have to bear in mind we have a lot of new faces this season and have had some injuries too. I'm confident. There are a lot of positives signs, such as the fact we have the best attack in Serie A.
"I also like the guys' mentality. This is a united team that fights. We now need to learn to do that throughout the 95 minutes, as we've already shown against Juventus and Barcelona by the way.
"The Champions League defeat in no way affected my belief in the players. We played well today. The more united we are, the better we'll be. What matters to me is that the players always give 100%. I really like our squad. We can achieve great things together."
