Clinical Honda secures win for Milan in Verona

Keisuke Honda has found his footing at Milan under new boss Pippo Inzaghi.
Keisuke Honda has found his footing at Milan under new boss Pippo Inzaghi.

History tells us that the Stadio Bentegodi is a difficult place for Milan, but they ended their curse with a 3-1 win over Hellas Verona on Sunday afternoon. While there were several pleasing aspects in the victory, a brace from Keisuke Honda was undoubtedly the highlight.

The Japanese international's rise this season has been impressive, particularly given the struggles he encountered in his opening few months in Italy last year. However, now settled in Pippo Inzaghi's system, Honda already has...

Milan men Abate, Montolivo and El Shaarawy key to Italy hopes

The ESPN FC panel discuss Iceland's surprising form in their European qualification campaign, AC Milan's ability to return to prominence and Raheem Sterling's work ethic.

Despite winning all four games since replacing Cesare Prandelli as Italy coach, Antonio Conte has failed to convince entirely thus far. The former Juventus boss has guided the Azzurri to joint-top in Group H of Euro 2016 qualifying, but tense wins over Azerbaijan and Malta have left the Italian media with more questions than answers.

While individuals have been praised, the collective have fallen short of impressing with La Gazzetta dello Sport noting that Italy "failed to show up" particularly...

Milan relieved they're finally seeing the real Keisuke Honda

Keisuke Honda endured a slow start to life at AC Milan but is starting to show the type of form that persuaded the Serie A giants to sign him.

After a protracted transfer tug-of-war between AC Milan and CSKA Moscow last year and the general level of expectation, Keisuke Honda was under immense pressure to produce at San Siro. After his initial troubles, the Japanese international appears to be settled and is now enjoying his football in Italy.

The 28-year-old struggled to settle in his new surroundings last season as his acclimatisation to Serie A took longer than many expected. With the Rossoneri also under fire as Massimiliano Allegri...

Sulley Muntari and Keisuke Honda help AC Milan rally past Chievo

Keisuke Honda celebrates his fourth goal in six games in Serie A for AC Milan.

It was a tale of two halves for Milan at San Siro on Saturday night, as after an uninspiring first 45 minutes against a stubborn and defensive-minded Chievo, they were able to break the deadlock in the second and show flashes of quality. For Filippo "Pippo" Inzaghi, it was an important three points and perhaps more importantly, a clean sheet to go with it.

Inzaghi once again demonstrated willingness to make changes in system after moving from the 4-3-3 to a 4-2-3-1 during the game itself. While...

Riccardo Montolivo's return from injury will be a big boost for Milan's midfield

Montolivo's return can't come soon enough for a Milan side that's light in midfield.

While there is never a good time for a player to suffer an injury, to sustain one of the magnitude of a broken leg just weeks ahead of a World Cup is undoubtedly a bitter and cruel blow. That was the unfortunate circumstance Milan captain Riccardo Montolivo found himself in earlier this year, and he is still recovering from that injury sustained back in May.

Italy's disappointing summer in Brazil has come and gone, but Montolivo is reportedly not expected to return until mid-November, and he...

Inzaghi must build on slow and steady AC Milan progress

Fernando Torres failed to find the net against Cesena, with AC Milan settling for a 1-1 draw courtesy of Adil Rami's equaliser.

After such a promising start to the new season, AC Milan have stuttered in recent weeks and Pippo Inzaghi is left to analyse another draw after being held 1-1 by Cesena on Sunday. Although the determination and ability to overcome an early setback is certainly a positive, the Rossoneri have now taken just two points from their last three games. Is the honeymoon period over?

Much of the talk ahead of kick-off on Sunday centred around the decision to implement a new system with Keisuke Honda, Jeremy...
