 AC Milan secured a convincing 3-1 victory over Frosinone at San Siro, with striker Luka Jovic making a significant impact. Jovic, along with midfielder Christian Pulisic and defender Fikayo Tomori, contributed to Milan's second consecutive Serie A win, placing them third in the standings with 29 points.

The match started quietly, with Frosinone posing a threat in the first half. However, Jovic broke the deadlock just before halftime with a volley from inside the box, marking his first goal for Milan since joining in September.

Coach Stefano Pioli acknowledged the importance of maintaining consistency and praised the team's positive performance, especially considering the absence of injured striker Rafael Leao.

In the 50th minute, Pulisic doubled Milan's lead by converting a long pass from goalkeeper Mike Maignan into a top corner. Maignan's assist showcased his contribution to the team's offensive capabilities.

Jovic, displaying his all-around skills, set up Tomori for the third goal in the 74th minute with a header across the goal face. Frosinone's Marco Brescianini pulled one back with a free-kick eight minutes from time.

Despite a midweek Champions League loss to Borussia Dortmund, Milan's recent victories signify a return to form. Coach Pioli expressed confidence in Jovic, highlighting his technical and tactical capabilities, and emphasized the need for continued improvement.

Frosinone, positioned 11th in the table, achieved 18 points from their first 14 matches, a milestone they hadn't reached before the 23rd matchday in Serie A.

In an earlier match on Saturday, Lazio climbed to ninth with 20 points after securing a 1-0 victory over Cagliari. Winger Pedro scored an early goal, and Cagliari was reduced to 10 men in the 27th minute.
