Two goals from Adem Ljajic helped Torino come from behind to pick up their third win on the bounce with a 4-1 Serie A victory over Palermo.

Ivaylo Chochev put the hosts ahead after just five minutes when he headed Alessandro Diamanti's fine cross from the right past England goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The lead lasted 20 minutes before Ljajic found room outside the area and fired into the corner. He struck again with a curling effort into the far corner to give Torino the lead.

Marco Benassi finished off a counter-attack in first-half stoppage time to make it 3-1 before Daniele Baselli tapped in at the far post to cap a comfortable win.
