Antonio Conte's men almost went ahead inside 10 minutes when Carlos Tevez's shot was kept out by Francesco Bardi.

They broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute when Spanish forward Llorente finished with aplomb after a pass from strike partner Tevez.

Just three minutes later the lead was doubled, with Llorente this time using his head to power home Andrea Pirlo's corner.

In the second half Juve comfortably saw out the result, ending the game with 72% possession.

Alfred Duncan came close to a spectacular goal for Livorno, but his long-range shot was kept out by Gianluigi Buffon.

Juve are not faltering despite the recent unstoppable form of Roma, while Livorno remain in the bottom three.
