De Rossi shrugs off end of winning Roma run

Daniele de Rossi insists AS Roma need not be down after their winning run was ended by Torino.

Toro ended Roma's record of ten consecutive victories with yesterday's 1-1 draw.

"It's a shame, but you can't win them all," De Rossi told Sky Sport Italia.

"After such an extraordinary run it can happen to have a little slip-up and we felt tired towards the end, so weren't as sharp as usual.

"It's particularly a pity considering we dominated the game. Torino just sat back and defended, but we've got to get used to that this season. At least we're still top of the table.

"Now we have to focus on next Sunday against Sassuolo. We've got to win to break away from Juventus and Napoli, seeing as they are facing each other next weekend."
