Ibrahimovic’s quickfire double gives Milan 2-1 Derby win

"I was being tested every three days to see the result, I told myself I could skip the other games but not the derby".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice in three minutes as in-form AC Milan beat rivals Inter to maintain their winning start to the Serie A season.

The 39-year-old scored a brace in the 2-1 win and according to him, they can win the title despite having a long way to go.

A report from Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia has analysed Inter's start to the season after four games and compared that to past year.

The Rossoneri doubled their lead three minutes later when Rafael Leao whipped in a cross from the left for Ibrahimovic to tap in at the back post.

Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for Inter just before the half-hour mark and had a penalty shout turned down by VAR in the second half.

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo blamed his new-look team's inexperience as they finished a second game with ten men.

AC Milan held on to make it four wins from four and stay top of the table.

Morata should have been the hero for Juve but his goal in the 75th minute was ruled out for offside.

"We are a young team, we need time to gain experience", said Pirlo.

Lautaro Martinez then had a header cleared off the line by Simon Kjaer and an even better chance in the air, this time from Lukaku, was somehow sent wide by the unmarked Belgium striker at the end of a breathless first half. They haven't won their first four since 1995. After the injury, I went to America in order to feel alive.

Slovenia forward Josip Ilicic returned for highly-fancied Atalanta after almost three months out with personal problems.

"This defeat as a wake-up call", said Gasperini ahead of starting their Champions League against Danish club Midtjylland on Wednesday.

Also on Saturday, Sampdoria enjoyed a 3-0 home victory over Lazio.
