AC Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi is confident his side can "get out of their rut" and turn their poor Serie A season around.

Inzaghi, who won the Champions League twice with the club as a player, became their boss in June but they are eighth, 20 points behind leaders Juventus.

Milan, 18-time Serie A champions, have won only three of their last 13 games.

"It's not an easy moment for the club, but I'm sure we'll get out of this rut," said Inzaghi.

"We're all committed and working as hard as we can. It's time to put our words into action and we have to go out and show that."

On Saturday, Milan have an away game at fifth-placed Lazio, whose six-game unbeaten league run ended last Sunday when they lost 1-0 at home to Napoli.

Milan and Lazio will play each other twice in four days, with the sides meeting in the San Siro in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia on 27 January.

"Every match is decisive for me," added Inzaghi. "We have two tough matches against Lazio but there is still everything to play for. Sometimes you simply need one match to turn things around."
