Inter v Milan

Inter 5-1 Milan: Player Ratings


A dominant Inter side put their city rivals to the sword, winning the Milan derby 5-1 with goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Thuram.


Sommer: Wasn’t called into action much in the first half, beaten by a smart Leao finish. 6.0/10

Bastoni: Dangerous high boot and a silly booking to pick up so early on but otherwise very good. 6.0/10

Acerbi: Back in the starting XI and put his experience to very good use. 6.5/10

Darmian: Very solid in the opening half but left for dead by Leao on the Milan goal. 6.0/10

Dumfries: Wonderful run on the break to setup the second goal for Inter. 6.5/10

Mkhitaryan: In the right place at the right time for the Inter opener, took the third goal with a smart finish and set up Frattesi for the fifth. Impeccable. 8.5/10

Calhanoglu: Felt like he was pretty quiet for a large period before stepping up to convert the penalty in clinical fashion. 6.5/10

Barella: Kept the midfield ticking over, simple things, but didn’t put a foot wrong. 6.5/10

Dimarco: Played a part in the opening goal but unfortunately injured and subbed off. 6.5/10

Thuram: Superb run to keep the ball in and set up the first goal. Stunning finish for the second goal. Stunning.  8.0/10

Martinez: Really smart play to cut the ball back for Mkhitaryan who scored Inter’s third.. 7.5/10



Frattesi: Came off the bench to score the Inter fifth goal, another excellent cameo. 6.5/10

Arnautovic: 5.5/10

Carlos Augusto: 5.5/10

Di Vrij: N/A

Asllani: N/A


Maignan: A bad day at the office for the Frenchman who was let down by his defence. 4.5/10

Calabria: One of the better defenders in the back line, but lacked in the final third. 5.5/10

Kjaer: Struggled with the pace of things early on and looked too slow to keep up with the speed of the Inter attack. 5.5/10

Thiaw: Got forward at times, including a shot just wide of Sommer’s far post. Had a tough time of it when defending. 5.0/10

Theo Hernandez: Smart set-piece that almost released Leao and then a great run into the box with a shot that was just wide of the far post. Very poor challenge to concede the late penalty. 5.0/10

Krunic: Really didn’t have much of an impact on the game at all. 5.0/10

Loftus-Cheek: A few touches aside, he worked hard but had little influence. 5.0/10

Reijnders: The best of the midfield three, trying to create and link up with the attack. 5.0/10

Pulisic: A frustrating night, struggled to get into the match and subbed off for the second ’45. 4.5/10

Leao: Took his goal with a lovely, cool finish. The only Milan player who really emerged with any credit.  6.5/10

Giroud: Starved of service in the first half, played a great ball to release Leao for the Milan goal. 6.0/10



Chukwueze: 5.0/10
