AC Milan march on with win over Fiorentina

AC Milan maintained their impressive unbeaten start to this Serie A season by beating Fiorentina on Sunday afternoon, pulling five points clear at the top of the table.

In what has been an unpredictable campaign to date, Milan have been Italy's most consistent and reliable side, again confirming their candidacy for the title.

Cesare Prandelli's Viola started well, and looked to trouble Gianluigi Donnarumma early on. But that didn't last long.

Alessio Romagnoli put the hosts ahead shortly after a quarter of an hour had been played, turning in a set piece, before Franck Kessie doubles their advantage from the penalty spot.

Dusan Vlahovic had a chance of his own between Milan's goals, though the forward hit his effort off the crossbar.

Milan haven't had much luck from penalties lately, and Kessie has recently taken over from Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the designated taker, but he missed another spot kick before half time, seeing Bartlomiej Dragowski deny him his second of the afternoon.

The second half was a different game, with Simon Kjaer stepping up to dominate the Viola attack, keeping them at bay.
