Abraham, Giroud open Serie A accounts as Roma, Milan win

Former Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham scored his first Serie A goal in Roma’s 4-0 bashing of Salernitana while another Blues ex-boy Olivier Giroud opened his AC Milan account with a double against Cagliari.

Abraham swept home a classy finish from just inside the area for Roma’s third against their newly promoted hosts.

The England striker was also involved in the second goal for Jose Mourinho’s side as Jordan Veretout struck, while Lorenzo Pellegrini scored twice.

Giroud, meanwhile, scored Milan’s third and fourth as they beat Cagliari 4-1 at the San Siro.

The 34-year-old France forward guided home a first-time finish from Brahim Diaz’s pass and netted from the spot after Kevin Strootman handled.

All five goals came in the first half at the San Siro, with Sandro Tonali curling home a sublime early free-kick to put the hosts ahead.

Cagliari levelled through Alessandro Deiola but Diaz diverted home Rafael Leao’s shot to restore Milan’s advantage before Giroud’s double wrapped things up by half-time.

Roma and last season’s Serie A runners-up Milan, who last won the title in 2011, are among five sides to have begun the new campaign with two wins from two, alongside Lazio, Inter and Napoli.

Juventus, who recently sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United, are trailing the early pacesetters with just one point from two games.
