Serie A: Juventus go top after hard-fought win at Livorno

Juventus forward Carlos Tevez scores against Livorno

Carlos Tevez scored as Juventus went top of Serie A with a hard-fought win at Livorno.

Antonio Conte's side were frustrated by Livorno's defensive tactics before Spanish World Cup winner Fernando Llorente struck in the 63rd minute.

Tevez sealed the points 12 minutes later from close range, the 29-year-old's seventh league goal since joining from Manchester City in the summer.

The result lifted the reigning champions two points clear at the top.

Roma, who started the weekend at the summit, missed the chance to go back above the Old Lady when they could only draw with Cagliari on Monday.
