A victory was needed.

AC Milan took a step towards stability on and off of the pitch last night with a two goal victory over Serie A strugglers, Sassuolo.

Vincenzo Montella's team selection raised questions before the match as the under-fire Italian chose to stick the faltering Nikola Kalinic up front, and replaced the faltering Lucas Biglia with Ricardo Montolivo.

Montella's choices seemed to damn him to another poor result within the first half hour. Nikola Kalinic missed another good chance, but a goal from Alessio Romagnoli saved his blushes and got Milan firing.

Leo Bonucci seemed to be better off for his suspension break and performed admirably throughout the match, and finally looked somewhat like the player Milan had signed him to be.

It was Suso who would secure the match for Milan, and with it, Vincenzo Montella's future. Finally, a win. Finally, three points.

People may question whether this is the best thing for Milan, however stability at any club is the only environment in which success can thrive and if that is under Vincenzo Montella, so be it!
