In an astonishing start, Hakan Calhanoglu collected the ball straight from the kick-off and opened up the Sassuolo defence with an incisive pass to Leao, and the Portuguese beat goalkeeper Andrea Consigli with an angled drive.
Alexis Saelemaekers added a second following a powerful Theo Hernandez run in the 26th minute and Domenico Berardi pulled one back for Sassuolo late in the game.
Milan, again missing injured forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic as well as midfielder Ismael Bennacer and defender Simon Kjaer, remain unbeaten after 13 games and lead the standings with 31 points, one ahead of their neighbours Inter Milan.
Sassuolo on their part are occupying the sixth spot with 23 points.
