Only Milan and Aston Villa have maintained a perfect starting record across all of Europe’s top five leagues this season.
Milan top Serie A, while Aston Villa remain perfect in the Premier League following Sunday’s victory.
Milan and Aston Villa are the only remaining teams in the top five European leagues with 100 per cent records.
All eyes have been on the likes of Juventus and Inter in Italy, while the focus has been on Premier League champions Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in England.
But Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Milan have been flawless in 2020-21, winning all four of their Serie A fixtures to top the standings.
Ibrahimovic scored twice as the in-form Rossoneri defeated city rivals Inter 2-1 in Saturday’s Milan derby.
Milan have scored nine goals – Ibrahimovic contributing four – from four matches, conceding just once to be two points clear of Sassuolo.
For the first time since 1995-96, Milan have won each of their first four seasonal Serie A matches, according to Opta.
Villa also own a perfect record after four matchdays in the Premier League following Sunday’s surprise 1-0 victory at Leicester City.
After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, Villa – who have a game in hand – now sit second, having humiliated title holders Liverpool 7-2 prior to the international break.
Ross Barkley was the hero against Leicester, with Villa boasting the best defensive record with just two goals shipped, while scoring 12.
Villa have won their opening four games of a league season for the first time since 1930-31, per Opta.
Aston Villa take on Leeds United next in the Premier League as they look to extend their perfect starting record to five games.
