Juventus remain as the form team in Europe after their 11th straight Serie A win at the weekend. 

The Turin side defeated Roma 1-0 with Paulo Dybala scoring the game's only goal. The 22-year-old has now scored eight times in the 11-game winning run and is the team's top scorer this season with 14 goals in all competitions.

Ben Lyttleton spoke to Off the Ball last night about the Argentine striker and whether he will remain with the Italian giants. "He signed for €40million in the summer, basically to replace (Carlos) Tevez. He played very little in the first couple of months. Looking back on it, it was probably a masterstroke from (manager Massimiliano) Allegri to ease him in."

"Around October time it all clicked. Allegri started picking him, making him a serious first teamer and he has rewarded him. He is absolutely brilliant and he has almost outperformed Paul Pogba this season. He's more of a number ten than a natural number nine, or nine and a half I would say. He's involved in the all-around play and has had lots of assists this season."

Barcelona are among the clubs reportedly interested in Dybala, but Lyttleton does not expect the former Palermo striker to leave Serie A anytime soon. "I don't think they will get rid of him or sell him to a bigger club anytime soon for a while yet, he's only 22. They have got three or four years to do great things with them."
