Kessie was assisted by Samu Castillejo for his fourth league goal of the season on his 23rd appearance before the Spanish winger rounded up the victory in the 67th minute.

Despite the win, Gennaro Gattuso's side who have 45 points from 25 matches remain unmoved in the fourth place as they close in on third-placed Inter Milan with just a point separating both teams.

AC Milan will hope to stretch their six-game unbeaten run when they visit Lazio for their Coppa Italia match on Tuesday.
