Serie A Team of the Week

It was a big weekend of football in Italy which saw the return of Antonio Conte on the Juventus bench after his ban expired.

The Bianconeri continue to remain unbeaten when the scudetto-winning manager is present on the sideline, rather than in the stands.

Milan continue their fine form with an emphatic victory at Torino that saw the new phenomenon Stephan El Shaarawy (who currently leads the race for the capocannoniere with 12 goals) score once more, along with Robinho, Giampaolo Pazzini and Antonio Nocerino.

Napoli completely dominated Inter, but ended up losing, to fall further behind the leader Juve, while Roma closed in on them in second with a fine victory over Vincenzo Montella's resurgent Fiorentina.

Pescara inflicted more misery on Genoa and perhaps pushed Gigi Delneri to the brink with a 2-0 victory that leaves the Grifone rooted to the bottom of the table.

My team of the week lines up in a 4-2-4 formation, in typical Giampiero Ventura style.

A bold approach, but Panagiotis Tachtsidis and Birkir Bjarnason will have to work especially hard to allow a magical front four to dazzle the opposition. Robinho, from the right, and Francesco Totti, from the left, will provide support for an all-Argentine strike duo of Gonzalo Bergessio and German Denis.

Let me know your thoughts on my team of the week and whether you agree or disagree with my selections. Keep in mind that Sampdoria host Udinese tomorrow, along with Lazio's trip to Bologna, so there could be some more candidates in action tomorrow.
