Milan had a tough month in September as they faced Lazio and Juventus in Serie A, but managed to pick up four points out of the two games keep them flying high.
It was a different story in the Champions League, however, as the team suffered a loss at Anfield against Liverpool and were then unfortunate to lose against Atletico Madrid after a game full of controversial refereeing decisions.
Despite the bad result in Europe, Milan showed great character in both games and managed to continue their good form in Serie A, so let’s have a look at the top three performers last month.
3. Fikayo Tomori – Average rating: 6.67
After being permanently signed by Milan in the summer transfer market, Tomori has been a staple in Milan’s defence being the best centre-back in the squad by far.
His pace and physicality have allowed him to adapt with ease to the high tempo in the Champions League as well as in Serie A. The Englishman had an amazing month in which he also earned himself a spot in England’s squad for the upcoming international break.
2. Brahim Diaz – Average rating: 6.75
It didn’t take long until Brahim settled in the starting XI this season, just as he was expected to replace Hakan Calhanoglu in that spot. The Spaniard seems to like the responsibility as he is constantly trying to involve himself into the game and make things happen.
His dribbling has been superb thus far as the opposition has really struggled to get him off the ball. The attacking midfielder picked up three goals and an assist through the month, earning the team nine points in the process and himself the second spot in our rankings.
1. Rafael Leao – Average rating: 6.75
Despite having the same rating as Brahim, we feel that Leao has earned first place with September having been a really good month for him. There were several big games in this period where he took on the responsibility and was a constant threat going forward, dashing through defenders with his speed and technique.
The Portuguese picked up two goals and an assist, but was involved heavily in quite the few goals even though he didn’t score or assist the goal himself, earning himself the top spot for the past month and we do hope he continues in the same fashion.
