Made a couple of decent saves at the end but was virtually untested throughout the encounter.
Was not as marauding as Abate, but found himself in his opponent's box on occasions. Defensively, he looked comfortable but did not stand out compared to his peers.
Was fantastic going forward as always, linking up with Boateng and Aquilani frequently, driving down the flank with attacking verve. However, against better opposition, he could have been caught out with a couple of lax passbacks and positional hiccups.
Scored a lovely goal to break the deadlock early on, and looked as confident and assured as ever, as Pellissier and Thereau couldn't find the initiative.
If Silva was the brain, then Yepes was the functionality. Offered his services down the right-hand side too as he helped bail out Abate when called upon and won everything at the back for Milan.
Excellent performance from the Italy midfielder, which was the definition of all-action. He was tireless and industrial in his approach, where he never stopped running and finding space to run into, while overpowering the likes of Bradley.
The former Liverpool man was everywhere for Milan, as he was always looking to play team-mates in and offered his services across midfield and the final third. Also assisted Ibrahimovic's opener with an intuitive pass.
M. van Bommel
Lucky not to be yellow-carded for a number of poorly-timed tackles, but he was hugely important in his role as ball-winner, constantly breaking up Chievo possession.
Substituted midway through the second-half, he was arguably the least impressive of his midfield partners. Nevertheless, he kept the ball well and provided energy.
Fantastic return to contention for the diminutive Brazilian, who profited from Ibrahimovic's fine hold-up play, impressing with his electric movement and tantalising footwork. Scored a tap-in for third and won the penalty for the fourth.
He will always be Milan's catalyst while he is in the team. Two more goals and continued to hold the ball up with great purpose, while always on hand to help support the likes of Aquilani and Pato. Sensational.
Could do nothing about the goals that went past him, but was helpful in ensuring no more were leaked in.
A similarly difficult evening for the defender, who was regularly bullied by the attacking power of Abate, Aquilani and Pato. As a result he could not offer much in his opposition's half.
Injured early on and was substituted by Acerbi.
Couldn't live with the pace and electricity of Pato, nor the physical, elegant nature of Ibrahimovic. Was run ragged at times and struggled often to keep up.
Arguably his side's best defender, he improved as the game wore on and began finding space in Milan's half, although to no avail in the end.
The American wasted numerous set-pieces and was overran at times by the excellent Milan midfield. Tried to conduct counterattacks but could not get past Silva and Yepes.
Had a couple of goalscoring attempts, but overall he couldn't put his playmaking ability to good enough use. Failed to keep the ball or make anything happen of note.
Tried his best in his box-to-box role, but bar one foray into his opponents' half, he was forced to defend for most of the game.
A dire performance from the veteran, who was substituted at half-time and conceded a penalty. Completely out-run in midfield and constantly lost possession, he was a liability as Chievo improved after he was replaced.
Worked his socks off all night and never stopped running and chasing lost causes. Silva and Yepes were too much for him in the end, but he did score an impressive disallowed goal.
Similar to his strike partner, he was always trying to carve out opportunities but unfortunately did not have it in his locker as Milan almost always regained possession instantly.

Really should have provided more cutting-edge when he came on, as his slip while through on goal stands out.
S. El Shaarawy
Another late cameo from the starlet, who tried to test Chievo's defenders on a couple of occasions, but to no avail.

Marginally better than his partner, but still didn't have an easy night, coming off the bench to replace Mandelli early on.
Arguably his side's best player, along with Pellissier, the ex-Brescia man had a handful of attempts at goal and provided much-needed drive.
Almost scored in his late cameo, where his deflected shot whistled past the post.
