Juan Musso (7 points): only three teams managed to keep a clean sheet in another goal-filled round and the Udinese goalie did against the opponents with the higher profile, accompanying it with few decent saves.
Danilo D’Ambrosio (9 points): the veteran defender benefitted from some heavy rotation to get in the XI and, as he has often done in the past couple of seasons, managed to shake free in the box and knock one on goal with a header.
Rafael Toloi (6 points): he racked up another assists, which puts him on a par with Aleksandar Kolarov for the most prolific Serie A defender in that regard, although this time he did it by scuffying a shot rather than actively looking for a teammate. He impressed in the back too, perfectly holding in the check the ever-dangerous Napoli attackers.
Bram Nuytinck (5 points): the rugged Udinese defender gets the token spot for the whole department as they successfully stifled Roma on the road, which is a still an achievement even though the Giallorossi had a very uninspiring display.
Gregoire Defrel (8 points): the condensed schedule is giving chances to play to a number of reserves and he was the one who best took advantage of that, as he assembled a brace against Fiorentina, drilling a penalty and then beating the offside trap right in the heart of the defence to set up an easy one.
Christian Eriksen (8 points): after two flops, the Danish star benefitted from the romp to return to the stat-sheet by bundling it over the line on a tap-in and assisting Antonio Candreva’s final goal off the bench, getting back on track fantasy-wise.
Ashley Young (8 points): he paved the way versus the Rondinelle by netting a pretty volley few minutes into the contest as he was left too open on the far post, shaking off the early scare caused by an early clear-cut chance by the enemies. He too teed up a teammate as well, D’Ambrosio, with a sweet cross.
Robin Gosens (6 points): he shares the spot with his teammate Mario Pasalic as their two goals sunk Napoli in the most anticipated match-up of the round. The Dutch wing-back pounced on a loose ball in the box to notch his ninth goal of the campaign, a richer haul than a lot of the best attacking midfielders have managed to amass.
Gaston Ramirez (8 points): he gave Gabriel two heartbreaks on his penalties, as the Lecce goalie actually got his hands on the first one, but it bounced in the air and across the line anyway, and was just a fingertip away from the second robust one. Two monumental goals in the race to avoid relegation.
Alexis Sanchez (8 points): the Chilean international confirmed the positive signals he had been sending out in the previous appearances as he dominated against Brescia, as he converted a penalty and assisted two of the other five goals with precise passes. He is going to be an important arrow in Antonio Conte’s quiver from here on out.
Paulo Dybala (6 points): another Man of the Match performance by Juventus’ attacker, who broke the deadlock with a low-driven cross-shot after weaving through defenders and combined with Douglas Costa before the final goal of the Bianconeri.
