Top 5 Players in Italy's Serie A This Weekend

It was a wonderful weekend of action in Italy that saw major movement at the top and bottom of the table.

Palermo failed to hang onto a lead against Chievo, which proved costly. Genoa and Cagliari secured crucial victories at the foot of the table and both sides appear to be well down the road to safety.

Juventus faltered away to fierce rivals Roma and opened the door for Napoli to close the gap at the top to just two points, but the Partenopei were frustrated at home to Sampdoria.

Milan continued their march towards the Champions League places, temporarily claiming third after a 2-1 victory at home to Parma—although Lazio can jump back above the Rossoneri if they can avoid defeat against Siena on Monday.

The most significant result of the weekend, and by far the most impressive, came at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, where a rampant Fiorentina trounced a dreadful Inter Milan side.

Here are my five picks for the best players in Serie A this weekend.
