. Napoli Players Celebrate Their Victory Against Lowly Frosinone

Five-star Napoli are Italian Serie A winter champions after a convincing 5-1 away win at lowly Frosinone to go two points clear at the top of the table, capitalising on Inter Milan’s shock 1-0 home loss to Sassuolo.

Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain further strengthen his topscoring credentials in the Serie A with a brace for Napoli to take his league tally to 18 goals in addition to goals from Marek Hamsik, Spanish defender Raul Albiol and Manolo Gabbiadini ‎thus rendering Pablo Sammarco’s late strike as a mere consolation for the hosts.

Being winter champions this season could prove significant for Napoli in the chase for a first Serie A title since the 1989/90 season, which was when they last emerged as winter champions in the league.
