By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan got the result that they needed to be crowned league winners as they beat Sassuolo 3-0 at the Mapei Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Rossoneri only needed a draw to earn a 19th league title in their history but in the end they romped home, with a brace from Olivier Giroud and a goal from Franck Kessie before half-time enough to put the result to bed. Below are the best post-match stats from the game, via the official website

➤ Milan have picked up 86 points in Serie A this season, only in 2005-06 (88) have they done better in a single season in the era of three points a win.
