The team needs to wake up and smell the coffee, performances like the one against Sassuolo won't win us the Scudetto or get us anywhere in Europe. Despite Napoli's freefall playing to our advantage, Inter are breathing under our necks and we can't afford any more slip ups.
Lazio has always been a tricky team for us specially with Immobile in such a great form. They have won 6 consecutive matches, are the league's top-scorers with 33 goals and only 14 conceded. Immobile has ridiculously scored 17 goals so far.
But maybe such a match is what we need to motivate the players and finally come up with a convincing performance.
Messi winning the Balon D'or and Van Dijk's controversial comments regarding Cristiano should also motivate the big man to finally step up and be counted.
There shouldn't be any midweek CL distractions as we have already topped the group and need complete focus on this match.
