BUFFON : 6- A very shakey afternoon with the distribution of the ball. Many juventini around the world get nervous when the ball arrives at his feet. Still fairly reliable though.

DANILO: 7.5- Another solid display. He was involved in the build up to the first goal, playing a lovely through ball into mckennie. Again it will be hard to drop him when this team becomes fully fit.

BONUCC:. 5- Poor distribution from the back from the italian international. Looks slow in possession and was taken off maybe to preserve him for the midweek fixture.

DEMIRAL: 5- Not his usual commanding self and got caught out on occasions. Not one of his best games to be fair.

CUADRADO: 6.5- Mr. Reliable again with another good display. Does his duties very well, getting forward and defending when called upon.

BENTANCUR: 4- Have yet to see the skillful and dynamic Rodrigo from last season. His energy and ball retention seems a bit off as he was substituted for the more effective rabiot.

ARTHUR: 7- Sometimes he holds on to the ball a bit too long but thats his brazilian and playing la liga football nature. Today he did better trying to play the ball more vertically and quickly. An elegant player that must start in my opinion.

Mckennie: 6.5- Played in an advanced role today of the midfield three and got himself into some dangerous positions. Provided the assist for morata and almost got his first juve goal but the spezia defender came up with an unbelievable clearance.

CHIESA: 8- In the first half he was anonymous but in the second half he came to life with two assist. A constant threat on the left hand side and seems to have locked a place in the starting 11

DYBALA: 3- Something looks wrong with dybala. He is just not making the team function right and he himself is not doing the basics right. A contract renewal has been put on hold. Hmmmm.

Morata: 9- A top class peformance by the Spaniard. A goal and an assist. Constant threat throughout the game. Can see him and ronaldo forming a good partnership in the future.

RONALDO: 9- Simply a world class player. The goat? Got stripped, came on the field and delivered instantly. Did he dedicate his penalty goal to pirlo? What a finish!!

RABIOT: 7.5- A goal and some lovely midfield play by the frenchman. Did more in his short time than bentancur. A very good display.

RAMSEY: 6- A very technical player that makes juve function better in this pirlo system. If its 3 in midfield he has to play. Didn’t do much to impact the play with his inclusion
