Napoli have managed to top the Italian Serie A following a convincing 3-1 win over Sassuolo

Napoli have managed to top the Italian Serie A following a convincing 3-1 win over Sassuolo.

The victory was achieved thanks to a brace from Gonzalo Higuain in addition to another former Real Madrid player –José Callejón – also scoring in the game. Even though Napoli have been completely convincing in the 2015-16 season, their performances have gone along well to produce results largely because of the presence of Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine striker has achieved a new dimension in terms of scoring. He may have been brought to the club by Rafa Benitez, but Higuain has unlocked a huge asset within himself.

The striker has scored 24 goals in just 27 appearances this season. His one goal per game record in the league has been astounding as well. This has been the reason behind Napoli managing to keep their heads above Juventus in the league table. Juventus have been making a stunning charts in the last couple of months after achieving more than nine wins on the bounce. Napoli have a big test in the form of a home match against Inter Milan coming up. Higuain has credited manager Maurizio Sarri for his recent form. The 60-year-old may achieve cult status at the club if he manages to maintain the form until the end of the campaign.

"I am working, I have confidence thanks to the coach, my teammates and the club. Sarri has a lot to do with my form, a lot. I thank him and just want to maintain this form. We have to continue like this, we're in good form and have to make the most of it. Now we have Tuesday and want to keep going,” said Higuain.“I remain confident at this moment Higuain is the best centre-forward in the world. I hope the team can do even better and continue to improve,” said the manager after the win overSassuolo.
