AC Milan failed to get back to winning ways this evening as Udinese beat them with ease at the Dacia Arena. Down below are the player ratings for the Rossoneri, with several shocking displays.
Maignan (5.5): He perhaps could have done more on the first goal as he was wrong-footed but he had no chance on the other two.
Kalulu (3.5): He had a couple of good long balls but his defending was simply too poor this evening. Udinese created a lot on both flanks and he made unusual errors that were laughable.
Thiaw (2): If Kalulu’s performance was really bad, then I don’t know what to say about this lad. Really poor on the second goal, practically gifting it to Udinese, and he was too insecure in general. On the third goal, he went down too easy and made it so easy for the hosts.
Tomori (2): Wow, and not in a positive way. It’s astonishing that he can go from dominating away at Tottenham to not even being able to control the ball a few games later. Turned inside out by the attackers and was made a fool several times.
Saelemaekers (5): He had a couple of good moves on the right-hand side, beating his man and getting into good positions. However, the delivery was too poor from him.
Bennacer (5.5): Taking him off was a huge mistake. He at least had something going and Milan’s positive spell in the first half all came from him making himself available.
Tonali (4): He worked hard, credit to him on that front, but his delivery wasn’t very good and he ended up struggling in the midfield battle.
Ballo-Toure (4.5): He’s clearly not a worthy deputy for Theo but the blame can probably not be put just on him. He at least got into the box a lot and offered some presence.
Diaz (5.5): One of the better players this evening as he created many chances. He still needs to learn to not dribble every single chance.
Ibrahimovic (5): Unfortunately, the amazing record of becoming the oldest goalscorer in the league was overshadowed by Milan’s performance. He was alright, but dropped down too much in the first half.
Leao (4.5): He helped us get the penalty, yes, but the reality is he was very poor in the first half and only in the second half did he play to his abilities. With little success anyway, though.
Rebic (4.5): Didn’t offer that much but he wasn’t straight-up terrible either.
Krunic (5): Apart from being nutmegged immediately he did okay.
Calabria (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
De Ketelaere (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
Origi (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
