Despite a lackluster performance at the San Siro, Olivier Giroud scored the lone goal in AC Milan’s 1-0 triumph against Torino on Tuesday, moving his club to the top of Serie A.
In the 14th minute of a relatively dull match, France striker Giroud scored his fourth league goal since joining Milan from Chelsea in the summer, putting Milan three points ahead in the first position.
“I’m very happy, we did well early in the match and afterwards Torino didn’t create lots of chances,” said Giroud to DAZN.
“We have the three points which is the most important thing. We play every three days and it’s very difficult for the body, so everything was not perfect but we are very pleased with the win tonight.”

With a lengthy injury list steadily being reduced, it was far from a great effort against a Torino side that put up a good showing and should have won at least a point with some better execution.
Stefano Pioli’s squad won their sixth consecutive Serie A game on the day Milan claimed they had cut their losses in half to 96.4 million euros ($111.8 million).
