Amazing Aguero – The Best And The Worst Rated Manchester City Players From The 3-0 Win vs Burnley

Full Time: Manchester City 3-0 Burnley

Manchester City continued their winning run in the domestic league as they picked up a 3-0 victory over Sean Dyche’s Burnley, who put up a stubborn display at the Etihad earlier in the day. A first-half penalty from Sergio Aguero, who equalled the goalscoring record for the Blues, was followed by second-half goals from Leroy Sane and Nicolas Otamendi, as Manchester City beat Burnley 3-0, without too much of a fuzz.

Manchester City Player Ratings

Ederson (7)

A brave display where he was ready to put his body on the line and managed to keep a clean sheet even as Burnley came close to scoring on a couple of occasions.

Kyle Walker (6)

Was indecisive with air balls and was also a bit wasteful with his crosses on a night where he could have done far better.

John Stones (8)

Showed his class by helping initiate moves from the back and also did well against a decent attacker in Chris Wood, keeping him quite until he was subbed off.

Nicolas Otamendi (7)

First to reach almost every loose ball in the midfield as he dominated his area and kept his side on the front foot. Scored in the 73rd minute to make it 2-0.

Fabian Delph (7)

Settling in well as a full-back, Delph put in yet another dependable performance, consistently adding numbers at both ends of the field. Easily one of the best players for City today.

Fernandinho (6)

Had very little to do on the defensive front and kept the ball rolling as Manchester City dominated most of the game.

David Silva (8)

Started lethargically but grew into the game, threading balls that were constantly breaking the Burnley defence, including the one that led to the penalty.

Kevin de Bruyne (8)

Though he lacked his usual flair, De Bruyne was involved in the build-up to the first goal and created the third goal for Manchester City in yet another productive outing.

Bernardo Silva (8)

Won the penalty for City with his smart movement, albeit a controversial one and was also a constant threat to Burnley in what was a rare start.

Leroy Sane (8)

Picked up a goal and an assist in the second half, having put in a dangerous performance on the left flank, threatening every Burnley player near him.

Sergio Aguero (8)

Slotted in the penalty with ease and looked dangerous for most game but was also rigid, in his first game in more than a month.


Gabriel Jesus (6)

Came on with 15 minutes to spare and missed a sitter to make his side’s victory even better.

Yaya Toure (6)

Slotted in well as the deepest of the midfielders and held on in the final 10 minutes of the game.

Ilkay Gundogan (6)

Gave De Bruyne a much-needed rest and also got a few much-needed minutes under his belt.
