“The city is making sure that we’re always on the case, we all want to win,” Spalletti told DAZN.
“We need to take it one match at a time… we can’t think it’s already done and start thinking about other things, or think everything’s going to look after itself.
“We need to take care of everything ourselves.”
Cremonese meanwhile are still yet to win in their first Serie A season since 1996 and look certain to go straight back down despite another committed performance under recently-appointed coach Davide Ballardini.
The away side, who knocked Napoli out of the Italian Cup on the same ground last month, started well but as soon as Kvaratskhelia weaved into the box and drilled home his ninth league goal of his debut Serie A campaign the game was up.
Osimhen was not in his usual fiery form but in the 65th minute the Nigeria striker was in the right place to tap in from practically on the goal line when following a corner Kim Min-Jae nodded the ball over to him.
And substitute Elmas ensured that Napoli’s tally of dropped points stayed at an incredible seven, exchanging passes with Giovanni Di Lorenzo before lashing in his sixth goal of the season past Marco Carnesecchi.
– Rabiot sinks Fiorentina –
Juventus survived a scare in their 1-0 home win over Fiorentina after Gaetano Castrovilli’s 89th-minute leveller for the away side was ruled out for an extremely tight offside.
France midfielder Rabiot met Angel Di Maria’s exquisite cross with a header which just crossed the line in the 34th minute in Turin, his fourth Serie A goal of the season which moved Juventus up to ninth.
And Castrovilli’s superb first-time strike was chalked off following a pitchside VAR check when referee Michael Fabbri ruled Luca Ranieri was interfering with play in the build-up to the goal as his heel strayed offside.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side are in mid-table due to the 15-point penalty inflicted last month for transfer offences, 10 points behind Lazio who currently occupy the last European place in sixth.
“We needed a bit of time to adapt (to the punishment), now we need to go after the teams above us one by one,” said Allegri.
“We shouldn’t forget that we would have been second on 44 points.”
Juventus could have sealed victory earlier but Dusan Vlahovic was denied his third goal in as many league matches since returning from injury when his neat finish just before the hour mark was scrubbed off for another extremely tight offside.
Juve are level on 29 points with Monza, whose dream first-ever Serie A season continued with a 1-0 win at Bologna which moved them into 10th and extended their unbeaten league run to eight matches.
Juve, Monza and Bologna are all a point behind Udinese, whose defender Destiny Udogie scored the fastest goal of the Serie A season, 25 seconds into their 2-2 home draw with Sassuolo.
