Media watch: Theo in Chiesa’s pocket

 Federico Chiesa was the undisputed man of the match of Milan-Juventus while his direct opponent on the right wing, Theo Hernandez, was the worst player on the pitch, according to Italian media.

Chiesa scored twice in the Old Lady’s 3-1 win over Milan and created all sort of trouble for the French left-back who is rated 5 by La Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport and 4.5 by Tuttosport.

Alessio Romagnoli was another disappointing player for Milan. La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests he was “too soft” when Juventus scored their first and third goal. “He is not the same leader he used to be,” writes the paper.

Davide Calabria, who played in central midfield and scored the equaliser in the first half, is the best player for the Rossoneri alongside Rafael Leao.

Juventus players are all rated highly. Curiously, the only exception is Cristiano Ronaldo who is rated 5 by Gazzetta dello Sport and Il Corriere dello Sport.
