Christian Pulisic bags his first AC Milan assist in improved performance during 3-1 victory

Christian Pulisic got an assist and helped set up another goal during AC Milan’s 3-1 victory vs. Cagliari in Serie A action on Wednesday. The Pulisic assist vs Cagliari is his first in a Milan shirt.

Wednesday’s game looked better for Pulisic after a string of so-so performances. Milan manager Stefano Pioli rotated his players and shifted Pulisic from the right wing to the left wing as Rafael Leão and Olivier Giroud were rested.

Here was the moment in the 60th minute when Pulisic set up Ruben Loftus-Cheek for a long-range goal to make it 3-1.

Pulisic assist vs Cagliari

Loftus-Cheek did just about all the work for that assist to count, but hey, we're not picky.

The game started out ugly for the Rossoneri with the underdogs taking a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute.

It looked like Cagliari were going to take the 1-0 lead to halftime until Pulisic sparked a Milan attack with a clever dribble that would result in a Noah Okafor equalizer.

This won’t count as an assist for Pulisic, but it did look nice. Milan struck again before halftime from a corner kick with another former Chelsea man Fikayo Tomori scoring.

Pulisic was taken out in the 69th minute as Pioli had Leão and Luka Romero replace Pulisic and Samuel Chukwueze on the wings.

FotMob rated Pulisic highly and tied as the second-best player for Milan on the night with an 8.1 rating. That is the best rating he’s had in over a month for Milan.

The victory and performance were expected but needed as Milan and Pulisic had both slumped in form ever since Inter Milan thrashed the Rossoneri 5-1 on Sept. 16.

Yunus Musah also played some minutes on Wednesday as he was subbed into the game in the 59th minute. He continues to impress in the cameos that Pioli gives him and could receive more starts going forward.

Milan now sit second in Serie A with five wins from six games. The next game will be a big one as they host Lazio at San Siro on Saturday at noon ET.
