AC Milan clinched three important points against Fiorentina this evening, asserting their position in the standings. Luka Jovic finally got off the mark and below are the player ratings for the Rossoneri.
Maignan (7): He made a really good save in the first half and also assisted Pulisic for the second goal with a great pass. The goal conceded was simply a breakdown in communication from several parties, not just the goalkeeper.
Calabria (6): An okay display from the captain who was comfortable in possession and also did what was needed in the defensive phase.
Tomori (6.5): The Englishman made a big mistake in the first half, rescued by the Maignan save, and that is not something we are used to seeing. However, he was good apart from that and also bagged a goal, being at the right place at the right time.
Hernandez (7): Great defensive discipline from him tonight, even if he did go forward on more than one occasion (he was clearly allowed to tactically). And when he did contribute in the attacking phase, it was of high quality as we saw on the third goal. It didn’t look like he was out of position at all.
Florenzi (5.5): A subpar performance from the veteran who, in fairness, played out of position. But he can still do better with his crossing.
Musah (5.5): He worked hard, there’s no arguing that, but he didn’t have as much success in possession this time out. Although it was offside, the 1v1 with the keeper showcased poor decision-making as he should have squared it for an open goal.
Reijnders (6.5): When Milan struggled to get things going before the first goal, he was the only one constantly moving, trying to make something happen. He also had several really good passes tonight, though fading a bit in the second half.
Chukwueze (5.5): Not his evening, that’s for sure, as he struggled to succeed with his dribbles and when he did do it, the attempts were not good enough. The cross on the first goal, let’s face it, was not a good one and Milan got a bit lucky there.
Loftus-Cheek (6): An important player in the physical battle, as always, and he had his moments in possession. More incisiveness can certainly be requested from him though.
Pulisic (7): It was a really great goal from start to finish. Maignan’s perfect pass, the lovely first touch and the ability to recover with a chip from a poor angle. He also did well in possession throughout the game and offered a solution for Milan.
Jovic (7.5 – MOTM): Finally, he got off the mark! Great striker’s instincts to anticipate the failed clearance and it was a clean effort as well. He also got the assist for Tomori’s goal with a nice header at the back post.
Adli (5.5): Not the best appearance off the bench, committing a few fouls and not always getting into the positions he wanted.
Bennacer (N/A): It was really nice to see him back, but he didn’t play enough to get a rating.
Pobega (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
Chaka Traore (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
Camarda (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
