A number of AC Milan players drew praise from La Gazzetta dello Sport for their performance during the win over Lazio last night.
The paper have printed their player ratings this morning (via MilanLive) under the headline: “Tonali cancels Luis Alberto, selfless Rebic.” The former Brescia midfielder got a score of 8 out of 10 for his performance, as he ‘dragged Luis Alberto to the brink of a nervous breakdown and this was the Gattusian part of his game. The pass with which he triggered the 2-0 move speaks to us a little of Pirlo, but let’s not expand, it’s better’.
Ante Rebic got a 7.5 for racking up two assists, while there were great games also for Davide Calabria, Alessio Romagnoli, Brahim Diaz and Ibrahimovic, all awarded with a 7. A 6.5 was given to Mike Maignan, Fikayo Tomori, Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer, Alexis Saelemaekers and Franck Kessie. The Ivorian had an assured performance, but missed a penalty.
The full ratings, therefore, are as follows: Maignan 6.5, Calabria 7, Tomori 6.5, Romagnoli 7, Theo Hernandez 6.5, Kessiè 6.5 (61′ Bakayoko N/A, 74′ Bennacer 6.5), Tonali 8, Florenzi 6 (61′ Saelemaekers 6.5), Brahim Diaz 7 (80′ Ballo-Tourè N/A), Leao 7.5 (60′ Ibrahimovic 7), Rebic 7.5. Pioli 8.
