AC Milan completed an incredible turnaround in the second half to beat city rivals Inter and thus keep the Scudetto race alive. Mike Maignan and Olivier Giroud were the big heroes and down below are the player ratings.
Maignan (8 – MOTM): An incredible performance from Maignan who seemed to be determined to keep his team in the game. Despite conceding a goal, he can keep his head up as he was by far the best Milan player on the pitch.
Calabria (6.5): A disappointing performance from the right-back who gave up so many balls and was often overwhelmed in defence in the first half. However, the defender managed to turn things around in the second half, delivering an assist to Giroud on the second goal.
Kalulu (6.5): Not a bad game from the youngster who looked sharp from time to time. His calmness and high pressing in the second half was crucial in keeping the opposition away from his goalkeeper
Romagnoli (6.5): Solid for most of the game but too reckless at times. The captain has had far better games, however, his display tonight was good enough for his team to have some solidity in defence for a good part of the game.
Hernandez (6): The left-back struggled to push forward as he focused more on his defensive duties. The biggest problem with his performance was that he was overtaken too often by his man. Not a performance to remember, also a red card in the end.
Bennacer (6): A quiet performance from Bennacer who failed to impose himself in a very crowded midfield. At times, though, he showed some good initiatives in defence, helping recover the ball in crucial parts of the pitch.
Tonali (7): A typical performance from the extremely talented Sandro Tonali in a game that turned out to be tough to handle for his team. He was everywhere on the pitch and even came close to putting the ball in the net a couple of times. Yet another imposing performance from the young midfielder.
Saelaemakers (4): A chaotic night for the winger who looked completely out of his depth. Slow in attack and completely non-existent in defence. More of a liability than an asset to his teammates.
Kessie (5): A very passive display from the midfielder who looked uninterested most of the time.
Leao (6): The young winger was unfortunately taken out of the game by the opposition as he failed to create any threat for most of the game. However, he did look solid in the build-up and helped create space for his teammates.
Giroud (7.5): While quiet and clumsy for the majority of the game, Giroud showed up when his team needed him the most, scoring a brace in the second half to allow Milan to come back from behind.
Messias (6.5): A very intense and dedicated performance from Messias who showed a lot of grit after coming on in the second half. His constant pressing particularly allowed Milan to get behind the ball and regain possession.
Diaz (7): An heroic display from Brahim Diaz who brought much-needed technicality, agility and quickness to his team.
