AC Milan certainly did not disgrace themselves during last night’s 3-2 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in the Champions League, and a number of players can hold their heads high.
It was a classic European game overall, as Liverpool took an early lead through a deflected Alexander-Arnold shot, but Milan came storming back and went 2-1 up with goals from Rebic and Brahim Diaz. The home side answered back after the break through Salah and won it with a Jordan Henderson strike.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) have published their player ratings this morning, stating that Mike Maignan was the best on the pitch for the Rossoneri with a 7.5 rating for the French goalkeeper. ‘A star is born’, writes the well-known newspaper, extolling the proof of the former Lille man.
The same mark went to Kessie, with half a point less (7) for Ante Rebic, scorer of the first milan goal. Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori were given a 6.5, while Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao got a 6.
Then there were a few who struggles as Theo Hernandez, Bennacer and Florenzi got a 5, while Calabria and Saelemaekers got 5.5s.
