Manchester City Player Ratings
Ederson – 6/10
Besides stopping Alfie Mawson’s effort, Ederson pretty much spent the rest of his time watching his teammates on the other side.
Danilo – 8.5/10
Although Danilo has been used sparingly this season, he never shies away from making an impact. Tonight was no different as he put in a dynamic performance.
Vincent Kompany – 8/10
Kompany’s positional awareness and physicality came in handy as he bullied the Swansea attackers to keep trouble at bay.
Aymeric Laporte – 7.5/10
Laporte’s passes were good and he had a decent game but he still needs to refine his skills a tad bit more to truly reach his potential.
Fabian Delph – 8/10
Set up Sterling’s goal and put in a fabulous defensive display. Definitely one of City’s most promising stars at present.
Kevin De Bruyne – 9.5/10
Is there any end to De Bruyne’s greatness? Although Mohamed Salah has been the talk of the season, De Bruyne deserves equal credit for his incisive and creative performances.
Ilkay Gundogan – 9/10
Gundogan’s improvement is stunning to behold and he put in an influential performance to aid City’s stunning victory.
David Silva – 10/10
Silva’s attacking runs were delightful to watch. He scored the first goal and played a key role in the build-up to the second one as well. City’s best player on the field.
Bernardo Silva – 8.5/10
Scored a brilliant goal and he was an energetic performer throughout the game. Silva was calculated and calm.
Gabriel Jesus – 9/10
One of the most hard-working players on the pitch, Jesus was finally rewarded with a goal.
Raheem Sterling – 9.5/10
Provided a crucial assist for Silva and earned the penalty for the fourth goal. Sterling is only going from strength-to-strength this season and that’s reflecting on his displays on the field.
Yaya Toure – 7/10
Displayed excellent pace to inject some dynamism.
Phil Foden – 6/10
Made some well-timed runs to aid the attack towards the end of the game.
Benjamin Mendy – 5/10
Looked a tad bit rusty and could not make much of an impact.
