Player Ratings - Milan vs Spezia

Donnarumma - 7: Coming off the back of the crazy game against Rio Ave, Gigio had a relatively easily game with little challenges coming his way. Ironically, the greatest challenge for him probably came from Calabria’s friendly fire.


Calabria - 7: Got caught in a very awkward position against Pobega and almost gave Spezia a one goal lead. Otherwise, a good performance from Davide.


Gabbia – 7: The youngster continues to mature into the CB starting position. Looked confident and calm when the ball came his way.


Kjaer - 7: Really proving his worth of late. One of our more important players that brings spades full of experience and professionalism. Interesting to see him taking set pieces.


Hernandez – 8.5: Wow! If you had to show one piece of footage to show why we love him, it would be from that goal. Dominant performance from Theo, he really owned his patch of the field. Frequently punished Spezia for giving him so much freedom.


Tonali - 7: Controlled our play out of defence and showed us his excellent vision. Also made some important defensive plays.


Krunic – 6: Not the most productive game but still a solid performance.


Leao - 8: Was outclassed early by Spezia however came into his own in the second half. Took the opportunity when it came his way, scoring two goals.


Colombo – 5: Starved of opportunity and taken off at half time for Calhanoglu.


Saelemaekers – 7: Still needs some polishing but his pace and creativity created problems for Spezia. Provided some good balls into the box.


Diaz – 7.5: Again, showed his burst and explosiveness, cutting through the Spezia midfield. Absolute livewire that you need to pull to the ground to stop. A little more poise would help when offloading the ball.


Calhanoglu - 8: Another strong performance from Hakan. Was one of the key reasons why the game turned on for us. His assists were excellent.


Kessie – 6.5: Came on for Tonali and added a bit of structure into the midfield.


Bennacer – 6.5: Helped us see out the game.


Hauge: Debut game. Crazy to think that a little over a week ago we had never heard of him.


Maldini: Came on late in the game when all was said and done.
