With Napoli losing and both Fiorentina and Inter winning, the Nerazzurri take over at the top once again as Dave Taylor picks his best XI from Week 15

Antonio Mirante [Bologna]

The veteran was tested on a few occasions pulling off some really crucial saves including several strong efforts from Serie A’s top scorer Gonzalo Higuain and a tricky Jose Callejon to win the points. Alert.

Bruno Peres [Torino]

Kept the opposition players on his flank quiet for the majority of the game like a Moray eel ferociously guarding his hole. Yet still found time to push forward landing two shots on target and narrowly missing with another. Intense.

Gonzalo Rodriguez [Fiorentina]

Blocked shots, tackles and interceptions: the Argentinian completed them all with efficiency and grace. Of course his standout moment was his goal when he rose high to firmly head home from a corner. Commanding.

Giorgio Chiellini [Juventus]

Totally alert to any sort of danger he wrapped the opposition forwards in a death spiral like an anaconda squeezing the last breath out of its prey. At his vital best successfully tackling a dangerous Miroslav Klose at the death. Powerful.

Alex Telles [Inter]

Showed enough energy to power the whole stadium down the left, overlapping at times and being an excellent partner for Adem Ljajic. Lay on several dangerous crosses, got forward and dealt with any physical threats. Lively.

Lorenzo Pellegrini [Sassuolo]

The teenager was a constant problem and had a couple of efforts just off target before his first Serie A goal. With Emiliano Viviano blocking his first attempt the Samp’ keeper could do nothing to stop the follow up. Tireless.

Amadou Diawara [Bologna]

Involved in the best of Bologna’s movements and always looking to attack spaces and search for the killer ball to put any pressure on in a heartbeat. It was his long, precise pass that helped Mattia Destro score the opener. Forceful.

Alex Sandro [Juventus]

It was an energetic display from Mr perpetual motion who controlled the left wing and was always a ready outlet. He also played his part in forcing the own goal and helped out at the back when needed. Threatening.

Adem Ljajic [Inter]

The Serbian has been a new man this season and was threatening from every angle. He was eventually rewarded for his efforts scoring the only goal from a sensational curling free kick that flew over several defenders into the far corner. Dynamic.

Mattia Destro [Bologna]

Revitalised under Roberto Donadoni, the striker was everywhere leaving the Napoli defence as red as a boil on a baboon’s backside. Scoring the opener he also netted a second when latching onto a defensive mistake and screwing his shot under Pepe Reina. Superb.

Paulo Dybala [Juventus]

The young Argentinian was at his very best throughout and scored with a fabulous volley from outside the box, after brilliantly controlling a perfect pass from Mario Mandzukic. Before that he also forced an own goal. Fabulous.

Special Mentions: Mario Mandzukic [Juventus], Jeison Murillo [Inter], Gonzalo Higuain [Napoli], Marten De Roon [Atalanta], Lukasz Skorupski [Empoli], Paolo Cannavaro [Sassuolo], Milan Badelj [Fiorentina], Francesco Acerbi [Sassuolo].
