Napoli, Lazio results build Serie A excitement

AC Milan extended their unbeaten league run to 10 games with a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Chievo in the San Siro to consolidate sixth position - five points off the Champions League spots.

Maurizio Sarri believes Napoli are causing Juventus "real problems", though he conceded dethroning the Italian champions will be very hard despite closing within two points of the Serie A leaders. The 20-year-old forward has earned a place in the Italy squad after a breakthrough season with Milan where is he the top scorer, with 14 goals in total and seven in Serie A. It's very exciting I wasn't expecting it.

And Napoli seized the opportunity to revive their bid for a first league crown since 1990, after a 4-2 defeat by Roma and a goalless draw at Inter Milan in their last two games had put Juve in control.

Silva scored his second of the season when a corner bounced off Chievo defender Pawel Jaroszynski and into his path for an easy goal from close range. "Today we needed to be like Napoli and we had the right approach from the first minute and the result shows that".

Mauro Icardi hit four goals against his former club Sampdoria as Inter Milan claimed a comfortable 5-0 victory at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Patrick Cutrone turned in from a rebound to level for Milan, the referee initially disallowing the goal for offside before consulting VAR and changing his mind. The Argentina global continued his run as he picked out the bottom corner for his side's fifth goal six minutes after the break for his 22nd of the season.
