Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri was not happy with his side's performance on Saturday, despite their 1-0 victory over AC Milan making it three wins on the spin.
After a poor start to the Serie A season, the defending champions finally appear to have steadied the ship and are slowly clawing their way back up the table.
Paulo Dybala's 65th-minute goal was all that separated the Bianconeri and Milan at the Juventus Stadium, and Allegri admitted there were too many mistake from his players in key moments.
However, the Italian felt it was important to keep the momentum going ahead of their midweek Champions League clash with Manchester City in Turin as Juve look to extend their four-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
"It was a very complicated match because Milan defended well and caused us problems," Allegri told Mediaset.
"At the same time, we should've moved the ball better between the lines and it was not a good performance, but a solid one.
"The important thing was to win and go ahead of Milan in the Serie A table. Hopefully we'll get a good result on Wednesday against Manchester City too.
"We allowed nothing except for that Alessio Cerci shot in stoppages. We've got to improve in terms of decision-making and not rushing the final ball.
"At least we are finding some consistency in results and that is important. It's our second clean sheet at home after Atalanta. It might not have been a good game, but it was important to be solid."
