GdS: Milan player ratings for Napoli loss – Theo shines but rest of the rearguard struggle

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan fell to their first league defeat since January as Giovanni Simeone’s late header was enough to earn Napoli a 2-1 win at San Siro last night.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below) has their ratings for the game, starting with the team’s overall performance which was deserving of a 6 out of 10, while Stefano Pioli was given the same grade for his management of the game.

The best player was Theo Hernandez who got a 7, with Sergino Dest going down as the flop of the match, getting a 5 as he came off the bench and gave away a silly penalty early in the second half.

Mike Maignan was given a 6, while three defenders struggled in Davide Calabria (5.5), Simon Kjaer (5.5) and Fikayo Tomori (5), the latter of whom was stranded for Simeone’s winning goal.

Ismael Bennacer (6.5) and Sandro Tonali (6) did well in the double pivot, with Alexis Saelemaekers and Sergino Dest receiving a 6 for their efforts in the attack. Rade Krunic and Olivier Giroud got half a mark higher.

From the substitutes bench, both Pierre Kalulu and Brahim Diaz were given a 6.

  1. I really hope from the core of my heart that Pioli stops subbing Saelemaekers for Messias. Saelemaekers might not deliver, but when Messias comes on our flank collapses. Messias genuinly looks like he doesn’t want to be there, while Alexis runs his lungs out even if he fucks up every second dribble he makes.
    Alexis is useful and causes the opponent to lose possession so often just through his pressure game. He also creates space for Giroud so often.

    Be patient with CDK. Dude showed why we got him on 3 occassions. Without him there wouldn’t have been an equaliser.
