Christian Pulisic joins Shevchenko in exclusive Milan club as former Chelsea stars shine vs Torino

AC Milan star Christian Pulisic has etched his name firmly into the history books of the Italian giants, late on Saturday evening.

This comes after the summer arrival in Lombardy was afforded his 2nd successive start for his new club.

Milan are currently locked in action with Torino, in their 2nd Serie A outing of the new season.

And the Rossoneri find themselves firmly in control of proceedings, having found the net on a trio of occasions, to visitors Torino’s one.

The aforementioned Pulisic, meanwhile, kicked the scoring into gear at San Siro, getting on the end of a clever pull-back from former Chelsea teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Another ex-Blue was then on target a short time later, too, Olivier Giroud sweeping home from the penalty spot before Theo Hernandez rounded out the first-half scoring on the stroke of the interval.

As alluded to above, though, on a fine night to date for all associated with Milan, it is that man Pulisic who has secured for himself a noteworthy piece of history.

As revealed by statisticians Opta, the United States international ‘has become the 5th player to score in both of his first two appearances for AC Milan in Serie A in the three points for a win era (since 1994/95)’.

He joins a headline quartet, in the form of Oliver Bierhoff, Andriy Shevchenko, Mario Balotelli and Jérémy Ménez.
