Diaz- 8.5/10 Brahim Diaz clinic. The best player on the pitch today and he looks ready for the second half of the season. His link play, movement and work on the ball were all superb.
Tatarusanu- 7/10 The Romanian keeper wasn’t tested much but dealt with everything thrown at him (crosses,set pieces) well.
Calabria- 7/10 This was one of Calabria’s best performances so far this season. Defensively solid and was at times an outlet in attack.
Kalulu- 7.5/10 An impressive game from an impressive center-back prospect.
Tomori- 8/10 The former Chelsea defender made some crucial blocks and clearances to stop the home team from scoring.
T Hernandez- 7/10 It was an average first half from Theo but he improved in the second. Got more involved in the attack and even had a chance to put his name on the scoresheet.
Tonali- 8.5/10 He was the more advanced midfield player and was tasked with making off ball runs to help break Salernitana’s defensive line. In doing so, he added a goal and an assist to his stats for the season.
Bennacer- 8/10 Very tidy game from the Algerian. He recycled the ball well and won the most tackles in the game (3).
Saelemarkers- 7/10 The 23 year old had limited impact offensively, but he put in a shift defensively to help Calabrian out with the overloads.
Leao- 8/10 What a player Milan have on their hands. Showed his class once again with his quick feet, strength, movement and ability to convert his chances. His contract extension should be sorted soon but if it isn’t, many clubs will be eager to get this man’s signature.
Giroud- 6.5/10 Looked a bit sloppy early on but eventually grew into the game. Could’ve had a goal or two but he’ll be pleased with the win.
