Lazio coach Inzaghi on victory over Sassuolo: These lads are wonderful

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi hailed the courage of his players after their 2-1 defeat of Sassuolo.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile struck for Lazio after Francesco Caputo had given Sassuolo the lead.

Sassuolo are a very strong team, who play really good football and let's not forget we played in the Coppa Italia not even three days ago, so it was tough," Inzaghi told Sky Italia.

“It's the fifth consecutive victory, we are happy, and even though again we were in an emergency situation with injuries, I have wonderful lads who push past every obstacle."

That run of wins includes the 3-0 victory over local rivals Roma.

“We all know what the derby means here in Rome. We were very happy, but 48 hours later already had to prepare for the Coppa Italia tie with Parma.

“It's going to be a busy one again next week, facing Atalanta in both Serie A and the Coppa Italia. That's what this whole season is like, the fixture list is packed."
