Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his return from injury to help Milan to a 2-0 win over Lazio at San Siro on Sunday evening.

Ibrahimovic was on hand to turn in to an empty net from close range mid-way through the second half, following a breakaway led by Ante Rebic.

Rafael Leao's excellent first half goal had put the Rossoneri in front, and while Franck Kessie also missed a first half penalty, the hosts earned the win to make it three wins from three in Serie A so far this season.

It was 39-year-old Ibrahimovic's first appearance since suffering injury against Juventus in May, and he wasn't done after his goal either.

The former Manchester United & Barcelona striker grabbed the back of the neck of opponent Lucas Leiva in the dying embers of the game, and it led to Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri running onto the pitch to confront him. Sarri was shown a red card because of it.

Milan will look to continue their strong start to the season on Wednesday night, as they return to action in the Champions League with a trip to Anfield, where they play Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.
