Manchester City Player Ratings vs Southampton: Here’s how the Cityzens fared
Manchester City seem unstoppable at the moment after romping to a 6-1 home victory against Southampton in the league. The Cityzens were 3-0 up under 20 minutes as the fate of the game was already decided.
Southampton pulled one back through Danny Ings, who duly converted from the spot, but an electric Manchester City attack was just too good for the Saints.
Manchester City Player Ratings
Didn’t have much to do apart from a few routine saves. He was guilty of giving away the penalty though.
Kyle Walker (7/10)
He was defensively very good and made a number of important headers. He was unable to provide much going forward.
John Stones (8/10)
A strong performance from Stones, who was very neat and tidy in his display. He kept Danny Ings at bay for most of the game.
Aymeric Laporte (7/10)
He was cool and composed as he dictated the play at the back and always dealt with the Southampton press.
Benjamin Mendy (6/10)
Mendy was slightly sloppy at the back after giving away the ball on a few occasions. He was unable to provide much going forward as well.
It’s a wonder how Manchester City are going to replace the Brazilian. He worked hard all game and defended brilliantly. Fernandinho moved the ball well in the middle of the park.
Bernardo Silva (7/10)
Linked up well and distributed the ball seamlessly in the middle of the park. His control and ability on the ball were immaculate.
David Silva (8/10)
The Spaniard just seems to be getting better with age. He scored a superb volley and played a crucial role in the first goal as well.
Raheem Sterling (9/10)
Top performance from Sterling, who was involved in almost every single goal in some way or another. He scored two goals and picked up two assists on the night. The English winger has now hit the 50-goal mark for City and was voted the man of the match.
Leroy Sane (7/10)
For someone who hasn’t been receiving regular game time, Sane has always done well whenever called upon. Played the ball in for the own goal and scored the final one.
Sergio Aguero (8/10)
Aguero continues to rack up the goals. There’s no denying he’s the most potent striker in the Premier League at the moment.
Vincent Kompany (5/10)
Looked shaky and uncomfortable after coming on. Almost saw the ball roll into his own net after a scuffed clearance.
Phil Foden (6/10)
Played a few good passes and won a foul in a dangerous area.
Fabian Delph (6/10)
Defended well in the short time, but didn’t have much to do apart from that.
