Despite an uninspiring performance at the San Siro, Olivier Giroud scored the only goal in AC Milan's 1-0 triumph over Torino on Tuesday, moving his club to the top of Serie A.

In the 14th minute of a relatively dull match, France forward Giroud scored his fourth league goal since joining Milan from Chelsea in the summer, putting Milan three points clear in first position.

"I'm very happy, we did well early in the match, and afterwards Torino didn't create lots of chances," said Giroud in faltering Italian to DAZN before switching to English.

"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."
