Lazio coach Inzaghi delighted as Immobile hits hat-trick for Sampdoria thrashing

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi was delighted with their 5-1 rout of Sampdoria.

Ciro Immobile hit a hat-trick for the result.

“We're going through an excellent period of form and deserve every point we have, as despite missing some players during this run, the team always remained solid and united," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia

“Samp had been in good shape, so we made it look easy with the right approach, but it most certainly was not."

Lazio have the chance to make it 12 in a row against Roma.

“The lads believe in what we're doing and I am very happy, but we've got to continue like this and not take our foot off the gas. We've got the derby coming up and have to stay focused.

“I know what a derby means to us and what a 12th consecutive victory would mean, so that is our objective, but I cannot afford to think about it any differently to other games."
