Chukwueze’s Milan Derby Turns Sour as Inter Trash Milan 5-1

Samuel Chukwueze’s debut in the Milan derby will be etched in his memory for all the wrong reasons as his AC Milan side suffered a devastating 5-1 defeat at the hands of their arch-rivals, Inter Milan, on a fateful Saturday clash.

The iconic Giuseppe Meazza stadium bore witness to a one-sided contest as Inter demonstrated their dominance from the very beginning. Henrikh Mkhitaryan set the tone with a goal just five minutes into the game, leaving AC Milan in disarray.

The situation worsened for the Rossoneri as Marcus Thuram unleashed a spectacular curler in the 38th minute, doubling Inter Milan’s lead.

Amidst Milan’s struggles, Samuel Chukwueze was introduced into the fray, replacing Christian Pulisic. However, it took just a minute after his arrival for Milan to find a glimmer of hope, with Rafael Leao pulling one back in the 57th minute.

Yet, the respite was short-lived as Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed his brace 12 minutes after Milan’s lone shot on target, restoring Inter’s commanding three-goal lead.

Theo Hernandez’s costly foul resulted in a penalty that his former teammate, Hakan Calhanoglu, converted to notch Inter Milan’s fourth goal of the day.

The misery for AC Milan was compounded as substitute Davide Frattesi completed the 5-1 rout. Samuel Chukwueze and his teammates were thoroughly outplayed and outclassed on this fateful Saturday, leaving them with a bitter taste in their mouths after a humbling defeat.
