Milan 3-2 Chievo: The Rossoneri player ratings

A five-goal thriller at the San Siro saw Milan take the lead, fall behind to Chievo and perform a comeback to win 3-2 on a rainy afternoon in Lombardy.

Here are the Rossoneri player ratings.

Gianluigi Donnarumma (6): Performed some good saves when called into action and couldn’t do anything about Chievo’s two goals.

Fabio Borini (4): Not a good performance from the makeshift right-back who was beaten far too easily by Emmanuele Giaccherini which allowed Chievo to equalise and then moments later Borini was caught out of position which allowed Roberto Inglese to thunderbolt in to give the Gialloblu the lead.

Leonardo Bonucci (6.5): An inconsistent performance from the Casciavit Captain as he defended well and did Cristián Zapata’s job for most of the game. On the other hand, Bonucci’s passing was poor and he was dispossessed on a few occasions.

Cristián Zapata (3): Milan’s worst player on the pitch today. A questionable start in the first place over Mateo Musacchio he was responsible for not marking Mariusz Stępiński as the Polish International scored Chievo’s equaliser. In addition to this the Colombian was constantly caught out of position and relied on the work of Bonucci to make up for his mistakes. A shocking performance if I’m being polite.

Ricardo Rodríguez (6): Defended well when called into action but his crossing and attacking play was far from good enough.

Franck Kessié (6.5): Cut out a lot of Chievo’s attacking movements and supported Borini on numerous occasions. The Ivorian International also produced a lovely cross for Hakan Çalhanoğlu’s opening goal. The 21 year-old still needs to work on his passing though and unfortunately he missed a penalty in the closing moments of the game with a poorly hit strike.

Lucas Biglia (6): Helped the Diavolo defence in cutting out attacks from the Flying Donkeys but the former Lazio man was too slow with the ball and couldn’t engineer any notable Rossoneri attacks either.

Giacomo Bonaventura (6.5): ‘Jack’ went about his business quietly and put in another standard performance. Having earned his way back into the Italy team his morale is at an all-time high.

Suso (8): Was a menace for Gattuso’s Milan all game as his darting runs and crossing caused a number of problems for the Mussi Volanti defence.

Patrick Cutrone (6.5): A game of two halves for Cutrone. The 20 year-old was kept quiet during the first-half but he came alive during the second as his poacher instincts kicked in as he equalised for Milan after Stefano Sorrentino parried a shot.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu (8): Scored the opening goal for the Rossoneri and was fantastic for Milan all game. The Turkish International made light work of Federico Cacciatore and was influential for Il Diavolo all game.

Substitutions

André Silva (7.5): Was subbed on after the hour mark and was an influential substitute as the Portuguese International linked-up well with his wide players and to top his performance off he scored  the winner with his second Serie A goal in as many games.

Mateo Musacchio (6.5): Only played the last 10 minutes but he was a driving force for Milan as he defended exceptionally well and made a number of driving runs forward as he pushed the Rossoneri up the pitch. It remains a mystery as to why Zapata started over the former Villarreal man who is good enough to play from the start for Milan.
