A terrible spill allowed Cerci to bundle in the opening goal of the game, but he was otherwise assured in goal.
He was beaten for pace by Menez, who raced in to score a late winner.
He wasn't often tested defensively but refused to take risks in attack.
The right-back attacked well in the first half, but saw his threat dwindle after the interval.
Didn't look comfortable when faced with counter-attacks as he was often caught too high up the field.
Never shy to have a shot from long distance, but one such effort saw him pull up in agony, which led to his departure.
Enterprising in the first half as he relished taking his man on. However, that threat didn't last long after the restart, and he was subbed.
The veteran midfielder's loss of possession led to Milan's winning goal, but he made up for it with an industrious, two-way performance.
Broke up his fair share of attacks, but still was suspect positionally once or twice.
An unbelievable miss from point blank range summed up his afternoon.
Always a threat to beat his marker or play in a team-mate. Kept his head from the spot to briefly draw his side level.
Couldn't stop the penalty and wasn't tested much otherwise.
Shoddy early on, but recovered well to lock down his flank. Linked-up well with his team-mates.
Was having a great game up until the point when he tripped Berlotti inside the box to concede a penalty.
Allowed Quaison to cut in too many times in the first half.
A little clumsy at times, but otherwise a forceful display.
Industrious as ever, but there wasn't much end product to his endeavour.
N. de Jong
Not able to do much about Palermo's waves of possession in the first half.
M. van Ginkel
The Dutchman played a supporting role, finding little pockets of space to feed the ball into for his team-mates around the edge of the box.
Bundled in his first goal for Milan after a Sorrentino error, and looked hungry to impress in the first half.
A close call saw him have a goal disallowed, but he was otherwise a peripheral figure.
His persistence paid off as he pounced on a loose ball to race past two players and smash in a late winner.
