Belgian Saelemaekers showed his support for injured team-mate Simon Kjaer, who was out for six months on Friday after knee surgery, by running to the bench and lifting the Dane’s shirt to celebrate his goal.
With the win, Stefano Pioli’s men also gained four points ahead of reigning Serie A champions Inter Milan, who face Jose Mourinho’s Roma on Saturday night in the Italian capital.
