The Italian papers are full of praise for AC Milan this morning as they racked up their 10th win of the league season after just 11 games.
The Rossoneri handed Jose Mourinho his first ever home defeat in Serie A ending a run stretching over 40 games as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Franck Kessie scored in a 2-1 win that was made more nervy by Theo Hernandez’s red card and El Shaarawy’s late goal.
Below are the front pages from the major papers…
La Gazzetta dello Sport: “Ibra power. Milan 2-1 at Roma, stay top with Napoli, on Sunday the derby. Zlatan Show: Ferocious free kick and wins a penalty – ‘We believe in the Scudetto’. Theo sent off, Mou fury.”
Il Corriere dello Sport: “A paradise for two: Milan and Napoli break away +12 over fourth. Roma furious about Maresca. Zlatan scores with a free kick, then the referee gives a non-existent penalty despite VAR.”
Tuttosport: “Scudetto duel. It’s Ibra vs. Napoli! Zlatan inspires Milan against Roma.”
