Ederson- 6.5/10 The Brazilian keeper only had to make one save throughout the entire 90 minutes which showed that he wasn’t tested much.
Stones- 7/10 Ended the match with 93% passing accuracy and 3 interceptions.
Akanji- 7/10 Was tasked with being the aggressor in defense and limited Carlos Vinicius’ chances to run in behind.
Ake- 7.5/10 The 27 year old was great on the ball and handled everything thrown at him well.
Cancelo- 3/10 Gave away a penalty and received a red card after 25 minutes. It’s fair to say that it was a night to forget for the former Juventus full-back.
De Bruyne- 8/10 The Belgian had to take less risks when he had the ball as every attack was crucial. Nevertheless, He found some nice pockets of space and won the penalty for Haaland’s winning goal.
Rodri- 7/10 He did a solid job as a makeshift center-back.
Silva- 8.5/10 One of City’s better performers. Was relentless and took care of the ball well.
Gundogan- 7/10 Great assist to Alvarez and he progressed the ball well. Changed roles in the second half and was tasked with more defensive responsibility.
Alvarez- 7.5/10 Showed great off-ball movement in the build up to his goal and took it well. His service reduced after Cancelo’s exit but he still did well with the little he got.
Grealish- 6/10 Retained possession well but couldn’t get the better of Kenny Tete for the 64 minutes he was on the pitch.
Haaland- 8/10 Brought a different dynamic to the City attack and scored the winning goal.
Foden- 6/10 Made an instant impact on the team and was direct whenever he got the ball.
