He said: “We cannot allow three negative results to make us doubt this team. A player is not either good or poor just because the team wins or draws. The win is very important because we are now in good shape in the group.
“We’ve had stability since the start of our training sessions. Of course, the more players stay together, the better they know each other.
“We are at the beginning of the season and we must grow in every way. We were better managing the ball but we must improve further.”

For Juventus, Federico Chiesa is an uncertainty due to a hamstring problem and Kaio Jorge and Arthur will both miss out due to injury.
For Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a doubt after he missed their Champions League match against Liverpool, while Tiemoue Bakayoko and Rade Krunic could also miss out through injury.
Juventus: Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Sandro; McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot; Kulusevski, Morata, Dybala
Milan: Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Florenzi, Diaz, Leao; Rebic
Juventus - 21/20
Draw - 5/2
Milan - 23/10
Juventus are at home and so they will have an extra edge in the fixture and if Ibrahimovic remains out they will benefit. But Milan are unbeaten so far in the league and Juventus have had poor form before their midweek Champions League win, so the visitors could come out on top. Juventus 1-2 Milan.
