Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri was delighted with their 3-0 whitewash of Udinese.

Rodrigo Palacio, Andrea Ranocchia and Ricky Alvarez were on the scoresheet for Inter.

"It was one of our best performances of the season, also taking into account the quality of the opponents," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"We also did very well against Fiorentina and Juventus, but were eager to come here and play as if we were on home turf. That's what I try to drill into my players, that the venue is irrelevant.

"We still need to improve on how we control the ball when in the lead, as we still tend to show off a little too much and that can compromise results.

"We've got to take our chances to kill off games, although this was an improvement from the 1-1 with Atalanta, as we were able to press them high."
