AC Milan returned to winning ways on Saturday night at the San Siro with Christian Pulisic celebrating a return to the score sheet.
Pulisic scored his fifth goal of the season across all competitions as the Rossoneri defeated Frosinone 3-1 in Serie A play. The U.S. men’s national team star started and played 78 minutes in the AC Milan attack.
Luka Jovic propelled the hosts in front 1-0 before halftime, giving Stefano Pioli’s men a lead going into the interval. Pulisic would give the Rossoneri some breathing room only seven minutes into the second half.
Mike Maignan’s over the top pass was gathered nicely by Pulisic before the 25-year-old raced into the box and chipped home.
Fikayo Tomori would pad AC Milan’s lead at 3-0 before former AC Milan product Marco Brescianini added a consolation goal for the visitors.
Pulisic was substituted in the 78th minute, watching the final minutes from the sideline as AC Milan moved three points behind its rivals Inter in the league table.
AC Milan will next visit Atalanta on Dec. 9 before concluding its UEFA Champions League group stage schedule against Newcastle United.
