Napoli 4 Lazio 1: Sarri´s men return to summit despite Hamsik scare

Napoli came from behind to thrash Lazio 4-1 and reclaim the top spot in Serie A from Juventus

Napoli came from behind to thrash Lazio 4-1 and reclaim the top spot in Serie A from Juventus

"We weren't a team after the restart and quite rightly we lost the game".

Patrick Cutrone scored twice as AC Milan breezed to a 4-0 victory at SPAL to extend their unbeaten league run to six matches. "It's from the first day of preseason that we've been working for the title".

Lazio remained third after its third successive league defeat, seven points behind Napoli, and could be overtaken by Inter Milan and Roma on Sunday.

Lazio got off to the flawless start as Stefan de Vrij stuck out a foot to prod Ciro Immobile's cross past Pepe Reina and give his side a third-minute lead.

Napoli leveled in the final minute of the half when Callejon brought down a long free kick from Jorginho and fired it into the bottom left corner.

Wallace put through his own net after Callejon's inviting low cross from the right, before Mario Rui's low strike deflected in off Piotr Zielinski, Hamsik's replacement.

Zielinski also had a hand in Napoli's fourth, bamboozling two defenders, before unleashing a shot which Dries Mertens finished off. It was Mertens' 15th league goal and his fifth in his past four matches.

Sarri marked his 100th Serie A game in charge of Napoli by being sent off at the end of the first half for dissent.

However, Cutrone doubled the lead after 65 minutes with a close-range finish before Lucas Biglia curled in a wonderful effort from 25 yards after dispossessing Alberto Grassi to make it 3-0, with Fabio Borini rounding off the scoring in stoppage-time to move Gennaro Gattuso's side up to seventh.

Handed his eighth league start this season, the 20-year-old Cutrone scored less than two minutes in.

Atalanta rescued a late point against relegation-threatened Crotone following a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Ezio Scida.

A goalkeeping error allowed Rolando Mandragora to open the scoring for the hosts in the 80th minute on a waterlogged pitch in Calabria, before Jose Luis Palomino grabbed the equaliser - his first Serie A goal - two minutes from time.
