Newcastle United player ratings v AC Milan: ‘Lazy’ 4/10 & 8/10 ‘best performance of the season’ - photo

Newcastle United held AC Milan to a 0-0 draw in the Champions League at the San Siro on Tuesday night - here are the player ratings from the game.

Newcastle United’s first Champions League match in over 20 years saw around 3,900 away supporters travel to the San Siro for the group stage opener. Eddie Howe made three changes to his side that beat Brentford 1-0 over the weekend with Sandro Tonali returning against his former club, Alexander Isak starting up front and Jacob Murphy on the right win in place of Elliot Anderson, Callum Wilson and Harvey Barnes.

Milan dominated the chances in the first half with 15 shots on goal to Newcastle’s two but the game remained goalless at the break thanks to Nick Pope’s efforts in goal for The Magpies.

Newcastle improved in the second half but still struggled to create any meaningful opportunities in front of goal while Milan posted a less overwhelming but still dangerous threat.
