Di Francesco admits if not for their slow season start, they could be top of the table.
The coach stated: "It's true, we have to make up lost ground, so therefore are not among the favourites, but we're trying to keep up with the leading pack so we can have our say later. It's too early, but we're up there with a game in hand, so that is important.
“It is fundamental for a Coach to transmit his ideas and show what advantages following those ideas bring to the players. Losing to Napoli and beating Chelsea, the important thing was to push the opposition into their own half for long periods. In order to keep that up, we need to practice, like at school."
