Francesco Totti admits “nobody expected this start to the season” and Roma “can compete with everyone” after crushing Inter 3-0. 
“I think the victory and the consistency of this team is the best things, as to win a seventh straight game is not easy,” the captain told Sky Sport Italia.
The captain bagged a brace at San Siro this evening, maintaining Roma’s amazing start of 21 points from an available 21, scoring 20 goals and conceding just one.
“We hope to continue like this. We know there’s a long way to go, but with this team we can go far.
“I doubt anyone expected this start to the season. The team is set out well, has international level players and the mind is crucial. When your mind is free of tension, you can do anything.”
Rudi Garcia continues to insist the Giallorossi are not in the Scudetto race, but would Totti say the same?
“You could say anything now. We are a team who can compete with everyone. There are stronger sides, but we will fight to get into the Champions League. That is our objective.”
Roma also notched up their third consecutive victory away to Inter between Serie A and the Coppa Italia.
“We’ve had some great games here against Inter, especially in recent years, and to win at the Scala del Calcio is a wonderful feeling.”
