Ismael Bennacer has had a shaky start to the season, failing to live up to the standards we saw prior to his serious injury in 2020/21. However, in one area of the game, he has performed really well.
As highlighted by EuroExpert (see photo below), Bennacer has attempted a total of 17 dribbles this season and he has succeeded with all of them. That’s by far the best success rate of any player in the top five leagues (minimum 15 dribbles attempted).

Indeed, this is very impressive but it must be said that the Algerian has generally struggled this season. Above all, he has made some sloppy mistakes and he will have to eliminate that from his game, just like he got rid of the yellow card habit.

Sanches stands put too
He has made 2 mistakes that led to goals and not entirely his fault. He was not helped by his teamate.
Otherewise he’s been outstanding coming in as a sub most of the time.
I think he should be restored as a starter if Milan were to hope to win the scudedo. the duo Tonali, Kessie has not worked for Milan
