Chievo couldn't be faulted for their effort, fighting for every ball and constantly hassling the Rossoneri. Gennaro Gattuso's players were guilty on occasion of letting the feisty nature of this game getting to them, meaning some passes were misplaced and attacking rhythm was built sparingly.
Piatek's scored his sixth goal for Milan since his move in January, providing the cutting edge that Gattuso's side had been lacking earlier in the season, and unsettled the Chievo defence with his presence throughout.

Key Talking Point
As a player, Gennaro Gattuso often let his emotions get the better of him, and as a manager it seems like he is no different.
It took just 35 minutes in this game before the Italian was sent to the stands by referee Luca Pairetto for clashing with one of Chievo's players. Not long after his dismissal, Chievo equalised and Gattuso's players seemed a little lost, their attacking play disjointed and early cutting edge blunted.
This red card could mean that the 41-year-old misses his side's crucial game against Inter in the Rossoneri's next outing in Serie A. His absence could mean the difference between victory and defeat and will make an already intriguing game all that more interesting.
Starting XI: Donnarumma (7); Conti (6), Musacchio (6), Romagnoli (7), Laxalt (6); Paqueta (6), Kessie (6), Biglia (8); Castillejo (7), Piatek (9*), Suso (7)
Substitutions: Calhanoglu (6), Calabria (6), Borini (5)
Piatek was a constant thorn in the side of the Chievo defence in this game. He always looked likely to score and if Milan keep giving him chances, he has made a habit of burying at least one of them.
The 23-year-old hit the ground running following his move from Genoa in January and doesn't look like stopping anytime soon. If Gattuso is looking on securing the third spot in Serie A this season, the Polish striker will be key.
He also seems to have struck up a good partnership with his attacking teammates, notably Samu Castillejo, who constantly looked for his Polish teammate. Milan seem to have a brilliant player on their hands and will worry any defence when Piatek lines up.
