Roma striker Mirko Vucinic says they're favourites for the Scudetto after going top of the table. The Montenegrin scored in the 2-1 win over Atalanta that allowed them to leapfrog Inter Milan.

"It's a very beautiful thing and we hope that it will last," grinned the striker.

"Inter were the favourites when they were the leaders. Now we are up there.

"Our great strength is the unity of this team, which never wavered even during the difficult moments and we all made sacrifices for the squad."
