GdS: Milan player ratings for Sassuolo win – several players praised but one man marked down

By Oliver Fisher -

Two AC Milan players shared the accolade of being the men of the match during the 2-1 victory over Sassuolo on Sunday, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s player ratings.

The paper (via MilanLive) gives Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez a score of 7.5 out of 10 for their displays at the Mapei Stadium, with both registering assists thanks to excellent runs.

The Turkey international continues to lead the team in Ibrahimovic’s absence, while the full-back on the other hand, is “a high-speed train that offers a valuable assist for the 2-0”.

Kalulu in defence was also very good. In his second consecutive game as a starter, the Frenchman produced some fantastic interventions and therefore is deserving of a 7.

Franck Kessie also got a 7 – always a safe bet in the middle of the field – while Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao got the same.

It was a 6.5 in the ratings for Gianluigi Donnarumma and Alessio Romagnoli, while Davide Calabria, Sandro Tonali and Rade Krunic all got a 6 out of 10.

The only one who was marked down was Hauge, who got a 5.5 for getting out of the way of Berardi’s free-kick, even if he did almost score at the other end.
