AC Milan lost yet another 2-0 lead in the second half as Lecce managed to snatch a point from the game this afternoon. While a few players did well, others didn’t have the same success and below are the player ratings for the Rossoneri.
Maignan (6): He’s lucky that Lecce’s third goal was disallowed, because he was really caught off guard there. As for the other goals, he couldn’t really do anything and it’s also worth mentioning he made a stunning save in the first half.
Calabria (6): The captain had a solid game especially defensively and it’s a shame that he had to come off at half-time, seeing how things went in that position in the second half.
Thiaw (6): He made several interceptions high up the pitch and also helped start some good attacks with his passing. However, he could have done better on Lecce’s first goal and that’s why the rating isn’t higher.
Tomori (6): The Englishman had one shaky situation which nearly proved costly but aside from that, he was solid and played with the usual confidence. Nothing more than that, though.
Hernandez (6): It was a great assist for Giroud in the first half and he continued to cause issues with his runs. That being said, he struggled more in the defensive phase today and that certainly hurt his rating.
Krunic (5): Not good enough with his passing today and it ended up costing Milan, seeing as they could have put away some of those promising chances had the passes been right. He wasn’t great defensively either, truth be told, and just appeared sluggish overall.
Reijnders (7 – MOTM): He kept Milan ticking in the attacking phase and finally got his first goal for the Rossoneri after a nice run. Nearly made it 3-0 as well, but his effort struck the post. He’s certainly not to blame for the result.
Chukwueze (5.5): Apart from the pass to Reijnders before the goal, he really didn’t show anything of value and above all struggled in the 1v1 situations. On a counter in the second half, when he was alone against one with Theo, he remained offside the entire move and prevented Theo from passing. Things like that need to be worked on.
Pobega (5): An okay shift defensively but he was far too uncomfortable in possession today and wasted a few good opportunities.
Leao (N/A): He was subbed off after just ten minutes and we can only hope that he will be back after the break.
Giroud (5.5): Another goal for the Frenchman, who continues to prove that when the service arrives, he scores. However, it was incredibly necessary to take a red card for dissent, meaning he will miss the game against Fiorentina after the break.
Okafor (6): He helped set up the first goal, combining well with Theo, and had one effort that was well saved by the goalkeeper. The feeling is that he can still do more.
Musah (4.5): The American ended up costing Milan the game. Say what you want about Pioli’s decision to play him at right-back, but the fatal mistakes he made had nothing to do with that. Losing his man on the corner, and trying to dribble instead of putting the ball out of play. So, so poor from him.
Florenzi (5): He struggled on the right-hand side and nearly had a ‘Musah moment’ too as he lost Sansone at the far post (but he hit the post).
Jovic (N/A): We didn’t see enough to give him a rating.
