AC Milan entertained Chelsea at San Siro earlier tonight as they looked to secure a positive result at home in the UEFA Champions League. The Milan giants made a poor start to the game as they suffered a huge setback in the 18th minute when Fikayo Tomori was sent off by the referee. The Blues capitalized on their numerical advantage and managed to open the goal-scoring in the 21st minute courtesy of Jorginho’s penalty. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled Chelsea’s advantage just 13 minutes later as AC Milan went into the half-time interval 2-0 down on the scoreline.

The Italian outfit failed to come up with a response in the second half and crashed to a disappointing 2-0 loss in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each AC Milan player fared during the match against the Blues.

GK: Ciprian Tătărușanu – 6/10

He made a couple of decent saves at the back but won’t be happy after conceding two first-half goals.

RB: Pierre Kalulu – 6/10

CB: Matteo Gabbia – 6/10

The Italian sensation earned the ball back a few times and cleared the danger when needed.

CB: Fikayo Tomori – 4/10
