Player Ratings: AC Milan 5-1 Chievo

Five different Rossoneri men got their names on the scoresheet as they cruised to their biggest win of 2012-13 and moved up to eighth in the Serie A standings

By Daniel Edwards

  • Christian Abbiati

    3.00

    Christian Abbiati

    Needed to be more assertive when Chievo drew level from the corner, but chipped in with a handful of decent stops.

  • Philippe Mexes
    27
    1
    3.00

    Philippe Mexes

    Failed to pick up Pellisier from the corner that led to Chievo's equaliser, but otherwise a solid performance from the France international.

  • Cristian Zapata
    28

    3.00

    Cristian Zapata

    Had little to do in the centre of defence, dealt efficiently with the away side's few attempts to forge attacks.

  • Ignazio Abate

    3.50

    Ignazio Abate

    Happy to advance high up the pitch from right-back and combined intelligently with Emanuelson.

  • Kevin Constant
    30

    3.00

    Kevin Constant

    Looked comfortable on the left of a four-man defence, and his teasing cross opened the door for Milan to take the lead.

  • Riccardo Montolivo
    44

    4.50

    Riccardo Montolivo Top of the Match

    A trademark piledriver from outside the box put Milan back into the ascendancy, and with the midfielder bossing proceedings they never looked back.

  • Massimo Ambrosini
    27
    4
    3.50

    Massimo Ambrosini

    The quiet man of the Milan midfield, always on hand to break up the away side's advances by fair means and foul.

  • Urby Emanuelson
    34
    3
    4.00

    Urby Emanuelson

    Always lively and dangerous on the right, netted a beauty and was intelligent enough to square for Montolivo when the cross was tempting.

  • Giampaolo Pazzini
    29
    3
    3.50

    Giampaolo Pazzini

    Had few chances to break through the defence, but held the ball up well and played an integral part in Montolivo's strike. Finally made the scoresheet with the last kick of the match.

  • Bojan Krkic
    45
    1
    3.50

    Bojan Krkic

    Made the most of his start with an excellent low strike that earned him a first Serie A goal of the season.

  • Stephan El Shaarawy
    54
    1
    4.50

    Stephan El Shaarawy

    Started slowly but in the second-half tormented the Chievo defence, getting his reward with a simple goal that ended the game as a contest.

Substitutions

  • Mattia De Sciglio

    0.00

    Mattia De Sciglio

    A five minute cameo at the end in place of Abate.

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng
    25

    3.00

    Kevin-Prince Boateng

    Came in for Emanuelson and continued the Rossoneri control of the flanks.

    0.00

    Nigel De Jong

    Made a brief appearance towards the end coming on for Montolivo.

  • Stefano Sorrentino

    1
    3.00

    Stefano Sorrentino

    Three goals from four Milan shots in the first-half tells its own story, but the goalkeeper could not be held responsible for any of the strikes.

  • Dario Dainelli
    4
    1
    2.00

    Dario Dainelli Flop of the Match

    Solid enough in the area, but three long-range goals betray a lack of dynamism from the centre-back in closing down around the area.

  • Marco Andreolli
    1
    3
    2.00

    Marco Andreolli

    His missed header proved fatal for Chievo in the first-half when Emanuelson powered home.

  • Nicolas Sebastien Frey

    2.00

    Nicolas Sebastien Frey

    Failed to pick up El Shaarawy on the right as the youngster creeped in to condemn the visitors to a heavy defeat.

  • Paul Papp

    2.50

    Paul Papp

    Along with the rest of the Chievo team, fell to pieces in the second-half as the Rossoneri ran rampant.

  • Boukary Dramé

    2
    2.00

    Boukary Dramé

    Taken off after sustaining a heavy blow to the head, but had struggled to contain Emanuelson prior to his exit.

  • Roberto Guana

    2
    2.50

    Roberto Guana

    Found out in the middle by Milan's dynamism and quick distribution.

  • Luciano
    3
    0
    2.50

    Luciano

    The main creative spark in an underwhelming Chievo outfit, set up the goal before coming off in the second-half.

  • Perparim Hetemaj
    3
    1
    2.00

    Perparim Hetemaj

    Could not get his team moving forward, and was well overshadowed in midfield by the dominant pairing of Montolivo and El Shaarawy.

  • Sergio Pellissier
    4
    0
    3.00

    Sergio Pellissier

    Briefly raised hopes of taking something from San Siro with a well-taken header, to cancel out Milan's opener.

  • Cyril Thereau
    2
    1
    2.00

    Cyril Thereau

    Always tried to make life hard for Milan's back four, but given few opportunities. Forced Abbiati into a smart save early on.

Substitutions

  • Marco Rigoni
    2
    2
    2.00

    Marco Rigoni

    A surprise substitute for Luciano, and he could not provide the same spark that the Brazilian gave his team on occasions.

  • David Di Michele
    2
    2
    0.00

    David Di Michele

    Given 20 minutes up front in place of his captain, but the match was fast becoming a lost cause.

  • Adrian Stoian

    2.00

    Adrian Stoian

    Just like Drame, had no answer for Milan's movement down the left flank after entering.
