Henrikh Mkhitaryan believes Roma are ‘getting better game after game’ and won’t rule out a Scudetto push. ‘It is a strange season.’

The Giallorossi notched up a third consecutive Serie A victory, beating 10-man Torino 3-1, and caught Juventus in third place.

“We are getting better game after game,” the Armenian told Roma TV and Sky Sport Italia.

“We knew it would be tough tonight, but we prepared well and deserved the victory. Admittedly, we let go a bit in the last 10-15 minutes, because Torino were a man down and we thought we could just sit back and play on the counter.

“They created some problems for us, so we need to study our mistakes and learn not to repeat them.”

Roma also started to take several players off to rest them ahead of this weekend’s showdown with Atalanta.

“Now we have a couple of days to analyse Atalanta and prepare something for them. It won’t be easy, but then no games are.”

Roma are now joint third with Juventus and only four points off leaders Milan, but Mkhitaryan shrugs off questions about the title race.

“We still have a lot of games to play and it’s too early to say if we could be Scudetto contenders. It is a strange season and all the teams are pretty close together up there, but it’s still early.”
