Higuain targets title

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain believes they can win the Scudetto if the Partenopei can maintain the form that saw them beat Lazio 5-0 at Stadio San Paolo on Sunday.

The Argentine striker helped himself to a brace to compliment goals from Allan, Lorenzo Insigne and Manolo Gabbiadini to secure their second 5-0 result of the week after beating Club Brugge by the same margin in the Europa League.

"This is just the beginning and we still need to give our best," he told Mediaset Premium. "I didn't think about what happened in the past, as I am focused on the future.

"I stayed here to take Napoli back into the Champions League. Can we target the Scudetto? Obviously we have to aim high, but meanwhile Napoli deserve to be in the Champions League."

Although the result was impressive, it was only Napoli's first Serie A win of the season after two successive draws and an opening-day defeat. They face Carpi next at Stadio Alberto Braglia.

"I am happy for us and for our fans," Higuain concluded. "Now we need to have a rest, because on Wednesday we've got Carpi."
