Watch: Highlights of Thiaw, Leao, Kalulu and Theo’s performances vs. Spurs

By Oliver Fisher -

A number of different players stood out for AC Milan during what was a collective effort when they beat Spurs in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

We start with Theo Hernandez, who was given a 7.5 out of 10 in our player ratings: β€œA very important performance from him, which frankly silenced the recent rumours about his dedication. He got the crucial assist after winning an aerial duel and he was a constant threat to Spurs down the left-hand side.”

Malick Thiaw made a very impressive UCL debut and not only got an 8 from us, but also the title of MOTM: β€œIt was another fantastic performance from the German as he not only won more or less all of his duels, but he also impressed with his distribution (hockey assist for the first goal). He would have got a higher rating if it wasn’t for the miss from close range towards the end.”

Pierre Kalulu has had a shaky 2023 so far but looked back to his best, earning a 7:Β β€œA very solid display from the young Frenchman who barely put a foot wrong. Tottenham attacked more on their right flank but still, when he was called upon, he got the job done and partnered up well with Saelemaekers.”

Finally, it was a lively performance from Rafael Leao who got a 7.5: β€œHe looked like a completely different player tonight compared to recent weeks as he not only managed to cause issues for the opponents in attack, but he also tracked back on numerous occasions. He nearly got a lovely assist for Thiaw and came close to a goal himself.”
