Player Ratings: AC Milan 0-3 Lille – Criticised winger disastrous; no player stands out

By Isak Möller -

After 24 games, Milan’s unbeaten run came to an end this evening as Lille won by three goals to nil at San Siro. Not the result Stefano Pioli’s men were hoping for, but hopefully they can move on and improve. 

Donnarumma (4.5): The goalkeeper made a crucial mistake on the second goal, failing to stop a relatively tame effort. Other than that, though, he couldn’t have done much differently.

Dalot (5): Was alright in the first half but improved in the second half, especially in the attacking phase. Lacked the final touch, though, and also could have done better to help out the defence.

Kjaer (5): The Dane didn’t have the best of nights, but it’s also hard to assess him as an individual when the defence was exposed so many times this evening. The midfield just didn’t give them enough support.

Romagnoli (4.5): Poor display from the captain, who lost several duels and also looked very fragile in one-on-one situations. Gave away the penalty with a very silly foul, and although it was soft, it’s the second pen he has caused thus far.

Hernandez (5): Ran a lot and also got into good positions on several occasions. That being said, it remains unknown what Pioli’s plan actually was as the balance was quite off whenever the Frenchman went forward.

Tonali (5): The youngster did alright this evening, under the circumstances, looking a lot more secure and composed. He was unable, however, to fill the shoes of Bennacer which isn’t easy for any player at this point.

Kessie (5): Did well in many sequences and found good positions early on, but started to make a few mistakes when he was under pressure. He didn’t crumble, though, which was important for the Rossoneri.

Castillejo (4): The Spaniard was an absolute disaster on the right flank, squandering every chance he got as he continues to shift onto his left foot. It’s just not happening for him and at this point, he definitely shouldn’t start.

Krunic (4.5): He was invisible for most of the game and whenever he got the ball, he did one thing right and the other wrong. Frustrating performance, in other words, as he can do a lot better than that.

Diaz (5.5): One of the positives for Milan this evening, using his technique to create several chances for his teammates. Worked tirelessly until he was subbed off in the second half.

Ibrahimovic (4.5): Surprisingly quiet, although the Swede did win a few duels and tried to set up his teammates. He seemed very frustrated, though, and ultimately we didn’t get to see much from him this evening.

Substitutes

Leao (4.5): Made a few good runs but this wasn’t his evening, missed a big chance to at least give Milan one goal as he fired wide from close range.

Calhanoglu (5): Nothing spectacular from the Turk, but he did add some more balance to the side.

Bennacer (5): Immense for Pioli’s side, maybe he should have started this game.

Rebic (5): He had a few chances and overall, a decent performance although he didn’t get on target.

Hauge: N/A

    Disaster!!!
    What a shameful display.
    Romagnoli delivers another poor penalty, does not lead the defence and just out of his shape.
    Castillejo should be sold ASAP.
    He is not in the level for MILAN, can’t belive we spend 25M on him, what a waste.

    The big misstake was the we didnt start vid Calhanoglu…If he had started we would have had another game….

      you are definitely right man.

    Krunic and castillejo as wingers remind me of suso and hakan. Slow. Atleast those guys were able to produce something in attack this guys can’t. Oliver please advise Maldini to swap krunic and castillejo for thaivin plus a pack of chips as bonuses. Tonali played better than kessie today. Lille wanted this more than us as expected and political really underarestimated lille. But forget about this loss and focus on verona. Don’t forget that Liverpool and bayern had worse loses than us. This was a wake up call.

      If ACM think that Captain Romagnoli is the way to Europe glory then ACM will fall short

      ACM need a centre back with speed and toughness, Gabbia is much better than the captain
      Again Castillejo & Krunic are good players but not what ACM need to challenge bid European Clubs

    Romagnoli exposed. Did milan learn nothing from Liverpool, before and after signing van dijk?
    Just because he’s a captain, playing in central defender, wearing 13 in his jersey then milan would get another Nesta.

    Very Very poor indeed by AC MILAN playing lille with the result being 3.0 to LILLE not one player stood out the football game in my view was very boring by AC MILAN no excitement in the slightest by them I would rather watch a LEAGUE 2 FOOTBALL GAME THAN THIS am very disillusioned by AC MILAN it is now 3.35 AM in the Morning ON THE 6/11/2020 and I still can not believe this result I am disappointed so much so I will not be watching AC MILAN PLAY AGAIN again a complete and utter shambles in my view they could not score even 1 goal

  6. john says:

      1. JOHN says:

        Thank you very much I am very Happy with your comment and in reality I do not want to watch AC MILAN AGAIN as said in my earlier comment and I mean that with all sincerity, a depressing match on the 5/11/2020 I said earlier its more fun watching a league 2 football match than this hilarious nonsense last night by AC MILAN
        Saturday afternoon cartoons are far more entertaining than this rubbish on the 5/11/2020

    Milan sell castillejo,kessie,krunic,mussachio

  8. victor says:

    It is no use to judge the players one by one when we do not judge the game as a whole. We lost because we were SLOW and they were FAST.

  9. Mohammed baba says:

    We don’t need krunic and tonali bcs calhanaglu an ismaeel are in better shape than those two
