Samuel Chukwueze was handed his first start as AC Milan were held to a 0-0 draw by Newcastle United in their UEFA Champions League clash at the San Siro.
Chukwueze was replaced by Christian Pulisic in the 61st minute of the encounter.
The 24-year-old failed to make much impact in the keenly contested game.
The winger was not decisive in attack and was also unable to find the right combination to unlock the Newcastle defence.

AC Milan dominated the game with eight attempts to one, but Nick Pope saves and wasteful finishing saw their Champions League group start with a disappointing draw.
The Rooseneri also lost Reuben Loftus-Cheek and goalkeeper Mike Maignan to injury in the game.
Stefano Pioli’s side will travel away to Borussia Dortmund for their next game on Wednesday, October 4.
Newcastle United will entertain Paris Saint-Germain at the Saint James’ Park same day.
