The 22-year-old produced a confident performance between the sticks and showed good reflexes to deny Milan's attacking trio. Has every right to be displeased with his defenders for the opener.
Spurned a glorious opportunity to seal the win when he headed wide when unmarked from a few yards out but nonetheless a promising display from the on-loan Manchester City youngster who stood up to the test against former team-mate Balotelli.
Struggled to track the movement of El Shaarawy and was often outclassed by the Italian forward who surged beyond him to head home the opening goal for Milan.
The young centre-back produced a solid defensive display, winning the majority of his aerial duels and tackles. Also had a hand in the PSV equaliser when his fierce shot was spilled by Abbiati.
Joined in the PSV attack by getting into some promising advanced positions down the left but sometimes failed to track back and left his defence exposed.
The summer signing caused Milan problems by filtering into pockets of space between the midfield and defence. Tested Abbiati on several occasions but perhaps should have done better when his shot cannoned back off the crossbar.
The deep-lying playmaker worked tirelessly against Milan's experienced midfield trio and produced some moments of creative genius, especially his chipped pass for Maher in the first half.
Failed to make the most of his blistering pace down the right but did produce a good final ball when in an advanced position.
The South Korean excelled on his second debut for PSV with a typical hard-working showing. Tired in the second half but his leadership and experience proved valuable to Cocu's youthful side.
Showed some neat footwork down the left wing but ultimately failed to get the better of Abate. Was responsible for allowing the wing-back to get in behind him to cross for Milan's opener.
Got himself into some brilliant positions and was not afraid to shoot. Showed good predatory instinct to capitalise on Abbiati's error and level the scoring.
Produced a string of smart saves to keep PSV at bay in the first half but should have done better to hold Bruma's shot which led to PSV's equaliser.
An average performance from the Colombian who still seems to be shaking off the pre-season rustiness. His pace often helped him to make up for his suspect positioning.
Produced a brave header to deny Matavz in the first half but was too frequently found the wrong side of the Slovenian striker. Missed a good chance to win the match late on.
Aside from one sloppy backpass, it was a solid performance from the speedy right-back who dealt excellently with the threat of Depay. Produced a pinpoint cross for El Shaarawy to open the scoring.
Helped keep things simple for Milan in the middle of the pitch but failed to provide creativity to the Rossoneri attack.
An assured performance from the former Ajax man who marshalled the runs of Wijnaldum effectively down the wing. Helped keep things tight at the back under heavy PSV pressure.
The Ghanaian produced some crucial blocks and challenges throughout the game but often failed to track the runs of Maher who dictated the midfield for sustained periods of the game.
N. de Jong
An experienced, well-disciplined showing from the defensive midfielder on the return to his homeland. Often acted as a fifth Milan defender and helped prevent service to Matavz.
Contributed to the first goal with a defence-splitting pass but otherwise failed to show his creative ability. Showed good defensive awareness to track the runs of Willems, however.
Dropped off the defence excellently to pick his passes and set up some presentable opportunities for his team-mates. Was unlucky to see a curling effort tipped onto the crossbar.
S. El Shaarawy
Caused havoc down the left with his clever movement and close control. Frequently evaded the surveillance of Brenet and capped his impressive performance with a composed header to give Milan the lead.
Introduced by Allegri late on to provide some fresh legs in midfield and nearly snatched a winner late on, only to be denied by a good save by Zoet.
Came on for the remaining few minutes but showed good invention and positive attacking play. Promises to be a pivotal season ahead for the young Frenchman.
