After a sluggish start to the match, Milan squeezed out a 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona.
MOTM: Franck Kessie
Donnarumma – 6: Whilst two did make it past Gigio today, it would be hard to blame either of them on him.
Hernandez – 6.5: A performance in the right direction for Theo. Some solid defensive plays where he was able to show off his pace. Showed glimpses of his previous form later on in the game.
Gabbia – 6.5: Can’t be blamed for either of the goals. Overall a solid performance from the young Italian. Was lucky that Theo could cover his lack of pace. Really proving himself as a serious backup for Romagnoli and Kjaer.
Kjaer – 7: Kept Kalinic quite all game. As usual, proved himself as an important cog of this team. Played some nice balls forward.
Calabria – 6.5: Could have tightened up on some of his defensive plays, although overall a better performance for Davide, particularly in the second half. Zaccagni got the better of him throughout the game. Seemed relentlessness in his mission to challenge Hellas Verona’s defensive line late. Got unlucky with the deflection leading to Verona’s second goal.
Bennacer – 7: A solid game from Ismaël. Worked really hard to get us back into the game.
Kessie – 8 (MOTM): Our in-form player of late. Showed his signature strength to control the midfield. Whilst our first goal wasn’t registered under his name, it was his.
Leao – 7: Really good to see him taking on the game more and more. Just needed to finish his plays with a bit more poise and control.
Calhanoglu – 5.5: Still hasn’t recaptured his form. Slightly improved second half with a few influential key passes.
Saelemaekers – 6.5: Provided the ball to Kessie that lead to our first goal. Subbed off at half time.
Ibrahimovic – 7.5: Not his day. However, despite this he somehow willed himself into scoring that late equaliser. His post-game statement about allowing Kessie to take penalties in the future was probably due.
Rebic – 6.5: Brought some much needed energy into the game when he came on.
Diaz – 6.5: Came on in the 78th minute. Provided the assist to Zlatan’s late equaliser.
Hauge – N/A: Came on in the 87th minute.
