Sunday’s 2-0 win at San Siro extended AC Milan’s lead at the top of the Serie A table, with the Rossoneri easing past Fiorentina despite several absentees. It was a victory that demonstrated the team’s strength in depth and ruthlessness, with six significant stats arising from the match:
1- Milan has picked up 23 points from the opening nine fixtures of the season, a record start to the season for Rossoneri.

3- Milan has now scored at least two goals for the eleventh game running in Serie A, matching a previous record set from 1958 to 1959.
4- Since his arrival in 2015/16, Alessio Romagnoli’s tally of headed goals for the Rossoneri in Serie A (three) is second only to Zlatan Ibrahimović (six).
