Andrea Stramaccioni says there is no need to panic after Inter suffered a 3-2 defeat at Atalanta on Sunday, despite falling further behind Juventus.

Juventus have a four-point gap at the top of Serie A thanks to Inter's slip up, while Atalanta were the big movers of the weekend, climbing into sixth place.
Inter had the chance to distance themselves from third-placed Napoli, but a 67th minute penalty to German Denis put the game beyond doubt for Atalanta.
The loss was Inter's third of the season and Stramaccioni believes his side can quickly rectify their defensive issues.
"It was unthinkable that we could win every game," he said. "We were late defending Giacomo Bonaventura's goal, but for the rest I was not disappointed with the team.
"Andrea Consigli did well in goal and in the second half we were fired up. Unfortunately, Atalanta scored their second during our best moment of the match. It's a shame, as if we hadn't conceded the third then we would've easily equalised again, as they were getting tired."
Atalanta's penalty came in controversial circumstances with the referee deeming Matias Silvestre to have fouled Maxi Moralez in the area, but replays showed Silvestre first made contact with the ball.
"I didn't comment on the incidents against Juventus last week, so I'm certainly not going to comment on this," Stramaccioni said. "We have to compliment Atalanta. I knew this was a difficult match. Inter did not deserve to lose, but we can only top our hats to our opponents.
"I did not see a drop in the performance levels, so from next weekend we'll try to get back on track in terms of results."
