AC Milan coach Leonardo is convinced they're back in the title race after victory over Lazio.

Milan won 2-1 in Rome thanks to goals from Thiago Silva, who also struck an own goal for Lazio, and Alexandre Pato.

“When we push up and attack our opponents, then we are a great squad. The opposite and we struggle badly,” explained Leonardo.

“That is the risk of using our tactical system. Perhaps we are a little too unbalanced and must try to kill games off earlier.”

The San Siro side had a disastrous start to the season, but are right back in the title race.

“The Scudetto? We will continue to follow the path of humility, taking the example of Pippo Inzaghi and Mathieu Flamini, who came off the bench today and immediately made an impact.

“Naturally, our history suggests the Scudetto is a word we know well.”

Thiago Silva has had a fine debut season in Serie A, but in Rome today scored at both ends of the field.

“He is a player who is improving a great deal. He was just unlucky with the own goal.”
