Sassuolo coach Eusebio Di Francesco hailed his players after their 4-1 win over Parma.
Nicola Sansone struck twice in the rout.
"We conceded a goal on Parma's only attempt on target, so we could've been more clinical, but these are never easy games," the Coach told Rai Sport.
"Parma continue to prove they can trouble everyone, even in their current situation, but we deserved the win.
"I had been waiting for Sansone's goals for a while. He was in a bit of a dark period, but finally he has returned to being the player I knew."
