"We set ourselves some goals, which is to catch those in front of us. Then there's the Coppa Italia [semi-final] with Inter and the Europa League.

"It was important to win. We have 26 points, no one remembers that we scored 41, and we would be third in the standings. Look at the current standings."

Allegri also said he is happy that his star players like Vlahovic and Di Maria are returning to their best form. After his brace against Salernitana on Tuesday night, Vlahovic now has scored eight goals this season.

"If Di Maria always plays 60 minutes, I'm happy, he's a champion. Vlahovic is coming back well, meanwhile [Moise] Kean has had important chances,"

Allegri added.

"We need all these players, it's normal that we need to improve in possession. We play every three days, so everyone is important."
