Rui Patricio – Roma
Despite the pressure exerted by Sassuolo’s attack, the Portuguese goalkeeper was not overwhelmed. He made an abundance of saves and helped his team win against a great offensive team.
Davide Calabria – AC Milan
Limited Lazio winger Felipe Anderson’s risk of attack and he also found opportunities to participate in the Rossoneri attack phase.
Railway Bremer – Turin
The Brazilian center-back commanded Granata’s defense and also contributed to one of the goals by doubling Il Toro’s lead after a header.
Kalidou Koulibaly – Napoli (2 Teams of the Week)
In defense, often composed and comfortable when he distributed the ball from behind. Became the hero of the Partenopei by scoring the winning goal against Juventus.
Mohamed Tariffs – Genoa
After replacing Stefano Sturaro at halftime, the Algerian international became the unlikely hero in the Grifone’s comeback win against Cagliari, who scored twice with a header.
Gianluca Busio – Venice
The Lagunari took their first Serie A win of the season and the Italian-American midfielder played an important role. He worked hard defensively and didn’t shy away from tackles. He also showed clean ball control and contributed to the opening goal for the Venetians.
Sandro Tonali – AC Milan
The promising Italian midfielder dictated the game in midfield and showed maturity beyond his years. His wonderful through pass initiated the counterattack, which led to AC Milan’s second goal.
Tommaso Augello – Sampdoria
Offers the Blucerchiati a great risk of attack on the left side. He should probably have contained Nicolo Barella ahead of the second Inter goal, but he was a great participant in Samp’s attacks and scored an amazing equalizer.
Lautaro Martinez – Inter
Easy to find loopholes in the Sampdoria defense and his energetic running made it difficult for him to contain. Put the Nerazzurri ahead 2-1 with an excellent finish.
Dusan Vlahovic – Fiorentina
Despite his young age, the Serbian star proved with great composure to score twice on penalties to give the Gigliati the away win against Atalanta.
Ante Rebic – AC Milan
He played his part in the Rossoneri win against Lazio and provided the templates for both goals. His assist for Zlatan Ibrahimovic was very impressive, hitting a couple of defenders and producing a couple of step-overs before giving the Swede an easy tap-in.
