Luciano Spalletti credits Manolas, Rudiger for Roma's derby win

Luciano Spalletti has lavished praise on Roma's rearguard after the Giallorossi's 4-1 derby win over Lazio on Sunday.

Attackers Stephan El Shaarawy, Edin Dzeko, Alessandro Florenzi and Diego Perotti each got the their names on the scoresheet in the rout, but Spalletti reserved special praise for his defence after the match.

"The whole team deserves great credit for this victory. Everyone tackled the game perfectly, including when Lazio came back into the contest.

"For sure, you need to get through that moment when the opposition come at you and that's precisely what you need to add to your game and do what least comes naturally to us, i.e. defending.

"Everybody did well at that moment, and Kostas Manolas and Antonio Rudiger in particular were exceptional."

Roma sit third on the Serie A table, seven points ahead of Fiorentina, and four behind second-placed Napoli -- who Spalletti's side will host at the Stadio Olympico on April 25.

"Obviously we need to keep an eye on what's going on around us and make sure we're ready for anything," Spalletti said.

"Four points off Napoli is a big gap, even if they still have to come to the Olimpico.

"They're a great side and it won't be easy to overcome them. We'll have to be on top form to win."
