Backed up a decent performance in midweek with another influential showing between the sticks. Had to be on guard to deny the visitors on a number of occasions and is arguably the Rossoneri’s most in-form player right now.
The full-back tried to make in-roads down the flank but was unable to penetrate as he failed to make runs off the ball. His lack of adventure was testament to the visitor’s intensity in midfield.
Played an intelligent game alongside Alessandro Nesta and kept the visitors from entering the box once his side had broken the deadlock.
Once again failed to get deep down the right flank yet was still caught out at times at the back. Clearly not aided by the lack of cover in midfield.
The stopper ran few risks at the back and did well to contain the presence of bulky hitman Luca Toni.
A much better display than his showing in the midweek encounter against Lazio. Cut open the visitors with some intelligent passing but was often kept waiting as his team-mates refused to run off the ball.
Once again a key man in the centre of the park and it remains to be seen how Milan will function in the absence of their 'puppeteer'.
With some good movement the Ghanaian often found himself in shooting positions. Unfortunately he failed to test the goalkeeper opting for power rather than precision in front of goal.
The captain almost broke the deadlock as he finished off a great run only to be denied by an alert Eduardo.
The Brazilian showed an improved fitness level this evening but is still not at 100 percent. Despite some intelligent runs into the box, the former Manchester City man is clearly lacking the confidence of fellow new arrival Ibrahimovic.
Gave his side the lead with a trademark goal and once again showed his ability to carve out opportunities from nothing. ‘Ibracadabra’ is starting to look at home and he is proving invaluable with four goals in the last four encounters.
Performed some decent blocks when called upon. Could do little on the goal and was caught out by the creativity of a ruthless Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Denied by Abbiati on the stroke of half time but demonstrated his ability to get forward.
Worked hard in the middle of the park but was unable to make in-roads forward as Milan kept a tight ship at the back.
Played an intelligent game at the back and again demonstrated why he is highly regarded by Italian champions Inter.
Performed a wonderful block on the line to deny Robinho his first goal in Milan colours.
Kept a close eye on Ibrahimovic for the duration of the first period but will be disappointed with the manner in which he slipped past after the break.
Taken off shortly after the hour mark as his coach opted for more pace in midfield.
Kept the Rossoneri busy with some great movement in the opening period but with his side a goal down the wide man seemed to be running on empty.
Tried to drag the Grifoni forward late on as they searched for an equaliser.
Troubled the Rossoneri on numerous occasions as he looked to serve his team-mates with some well placed crosses.
Huffed and puffed in attack but was hindered by the lack of crosses into the box.
- 73 A. Scarpi
- 13 K. Kaladze
Thrown on midway through the second half but couldn't impose himself in midfield as the Rossoneri pushed forward in search of a second goal.
- 7 M. Rossi
- 17 G. Rudolf
Given a late run out but could do little to change the course of the game as the Grifoni ran out of steam.
