Brilliant. Milan have won at Roma for the first time since 2011.

The transformation of this team under Gennaro Gattuso is a wonder to behold. This team finds a way to win and is playing 100 times better than they were even a few months ago. Not only did Milan beat Roma, they dominated the game and could have easily doubled that goal total. And while Gattuso doesn’t want to talk about Champions League, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Milan could grab that last place. Winning away to Roma for the first time in seven years? No problem.

On to the links.
