The towering attacker hails the Serie A title holders' fine run of form and says that they will be gunning for revenge against Fiorentina on Sunday after defeat earlier this term

Fernando Llorente has voiced his delight with Juventus's "sensational" form this season but warned his team-mates that they cannot afford to lose focus as the Serie A title race is not yet over.

The reigning champions currently hold an 11-point lead over second-placed Roma - who have a game in hand - but the Spanish striker has stressed that the Bianconeri must keep up their current form until the end of the season in order to win the Scudetto again.

"The distance we've established over the Giallorossi has even surprised me a little. Our campaign has been sensational so far but it's not easy to pick up this many points," Llorente told Sky Sport Italia.

"What matters now is continuing this form right until the very end. The important thing is to not let our focus slip for even a moment because Roma would be ready to pounce at any opportunity."

Llorente then went on to discuss Sunday's league match against Fiorentina, who beat Juventus 4-2 earlier this season, and made it clear that the Bianconeri are desperate to get their revenge.

"We want revenge. Fiorentina are the only side that have managed to beat us in the league and we want to demonstrate that what happened in Tuscany was just an error," he declared.

"We had played a great first half and we could even have scored again right after the break. Then there were those 20 minutes in which Fiorentina came to life and we made some mistakes. I don't really know how to explain what happened."

Juventus will also meet Fiorentina in the Europa League round of 16.
