The Bianconeri have had a disastrous start to the campaign with one point from three rounds, drawing 2-2 with Udinese, losing to Empoli and Napoli.

“I cannot reproach my players for anything this evening. We put in a worse performance against Empoli, but today unfortunately we paid the price for errors," Allegri told DAZN.

"We weren't as precise technically and lost the ball a few too many times in the second half. Napoli played very well, but in football when you don't win, you can only shut up and work hard.

"We should've been sharper, gone for the second goal when 1-0 up.

“We conceded the equaliser and then this goal on a corner. There are many positives from the lads too. If you make mistakes like that, then naturally you're going to concede on the counter.

“I saw giant steps forward, the lads did everything they had to this evening, but there are moments during the season when the ball goes in and others when it doesn't."
