AC Milan have been on a hot streaking playing and getting points from top teams in the Italian league. Playing against Parma should be a nice change of pace for Milan. During the first 45 minutes Milan dominated the play on the field creating numerous scoring chances. However their finishing was like it was against Spal, poor. Milan had most of the possession suffocating Parma but they couldn't capitalize on any opportunity. Then sloppy defending led to a Parma goal late in the first half. After a dominating 45 minutes Parma were surprisingly up 1-0.

Milan had a bit of a slow start to the second half but after 10 minutes Milan got life injected into their veins by Franck Kessie scoring an amazing goal from outside of the box, no Milan fan saw that coming. As the minutes went on the goals kept coming. Next, Milan scored from a set piece with Alessio Romagnoli heading it into the back of the net. Milan up 2-1 and looking dangerous. However, the goals didn't end there with Hakan Calhanoglu also scoring a nice strike from outside the box. With a Kessie long-shot, set piece goal and goal outside the box from Hakan Milan came out with another come from behind victory.

Now lets rate the players from AC Milan

STARTING LINE-UP

Gigio Donnarumma: Gigio came up big when he was needed and it was reassuring to have a great performance after last game where he made some mistakes. 7/10

Andrea Conti: Conti started off the game fairly well but after a certain point it was like he shut down. After he was getting torn up on the right side. 5.5/10

Simon Kjaer: The day Kjaer gets signed he puts in another solid performance. On defence he rarely makes mistakes and his forward passes are key part in this team. 7/10

Alessio Romagnoli: On Parma’s goal Alessio could have done a bit better marking to not allow the Parma attacker to get a shot off. On the other hand he finally scored and the joy on his face was great to see. 6.5/10

Theo Hernandez: Theo had a few chances in the first half but couldn't capitalize. Plus his laziness getting back allowed Parma to score their goal. Theo’s prescience is enough to draw defender and that was evident as he drew two players on the Hakan goal. 6.5/10

Lucas Biglia: Like Conti, Biglia started off fine but then it all went downhill from there. His lack of mobility really hurts Milan. 5/10

Franck Kessie: Since the restart Frank Kessie has been Milan’s best player and today he scored an absolute screamer to level Milan. 8/10

Rafael Leao: This was Leao’s time to show his potential and shine. He didn't exactly do that but he had some nice moments in the attacking third. He showed ability to send good crosses with either foot. 5.5/10

Jack Bonaventura: This was Jack’s best game in a while. He looked alive and active in the attack, if only he would have scored. 6.8/10

Hakan Calhanoglu: A goal and two assists from Hakan. He was great against Parma and has been putting in good performances since the restart. 7.5/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: To start off the match Zlatan looked great but as the game went on he got goal hungry. Scoring seemed like the only thing on his mind and at times he hindered the Milan attack. 6/10

SUBSTITUTES

Davide Calabria: In my opinion Calabria was better than Conti against Parma. He wasn't getting spun around on defence and joined in well with the attack. 6/10

Ismael Bennacer: Bennacer is a baller and with Kessie they are a match made in heaven. He brought stability after Biglia went off. 6.5/10

Ante Rebic: Rebic wasn't outstanding but he had some moments of good and some of bad. Watching him take a big swing for the ball and absolutely missing was funny to see. 6/10

Rade Krunic: N/A

Diego Laxalt: N/A
