Manchester City Players Rated In Emphatic Win Vs Bournemouth

Ederson Moraes 7/10

It was a fairly comfortable day for the Brazilian shot-stopper.

Kyle Walker 8/10

The Englishman’s pace helped him put an end to Bournemouth’s counter-attacks.

Nathan Ake 7/10

The Dutch centre-back rarely found himself in any trouble as Manchester City dominated possession over the course of the match.

Ruben Dias 7/10

Just like Ake, he didn’t have too much to do in terms of defence. He kept a cool head throughout the ninety minutes.

Joao Cancelo 8/10

The Portuguese left-back had a few nervous moments against Marcus Tavernier, but he fared well nonetheless.

Rodri 7/10

The Spaniard didn’t have much defending to do at the centre of the park, so he spent most of his time in Bournemouth’s half, linking up the play.

Ilkay Gundogan 8/10

The German midfielder made some clever runs from midfield to slice open Scott Parker’s defence.

Kevin De Bruyne 9.5/10

The Belgian international was the best player on the pitch by a mile. He spotted his teammates’ runs very precisely and wasn’t afraid of having a go at goal himself.

Riyad Mahrez 7/10

Fancy footwork and lightning-fast pace helped him create plenty of chances for his teammates.

Phil Foden 8/10

The 22-year-old got himself a goal, but he was too selfish with the opportunities on a couple of occasions.

Erling Haaland 7/10

The Norwegian striker found himself centimetres away from some of the clear-cut chances his teammates created; however, it was just not his day in front of the goal. The signs are encouraging nonetheless.

Substitutes

Jack Grealish 7/10

He came on for Foden at halftime.

John Stones 7/10

He replaced Ruben Dias at the 65-minute mark.

Bernardo Silva 7/10

He added energy to City’s midfield.

Julian Alvarez 7/10

The Argentine striker got some crucial minutes.
