Sterling The Saviour – The Best And The Worst Rated Manchester City Players vs Everton

published :

Manchester City left it late late in their first home game of the new season, to salvage a point, drawing 1-1 against Everton, on Monday night. 

Despite a number of chances created by the Citizens, it was Everton who took the lead in the 35th minute through that man, Wayne Rooney. And it looked like the Toffees would walk away with three points, until substitute Raheem Sterling brought City back on level terms in the 82nd minute.  

Here’s how the Manchester City players fared on the night; 

Ederson Moraes – 5/10 

Could have done better for Rooney’s goal, as the ball went through his legs into the net. Did not have much else to do. 

Vincent Kompany – 6/10 

Was a little static at times and was given a good test by Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Booked for a clumsy challenge on the England youth international. 

John Stones – 6/10 

Not tested a whole lot by his former side and as a result had a fairly comfortable game, before being taken off as Pep Guardiola chased the game. 

Nicolas Otamendi – 6.5/10 

Forced a couple of saves from Jordan Pickford with a strike from distance. Strong at the back. 

Kyle Walker – 5/10 

Booked in the first-half for a lunge on Leighton Baines. Picked a second yellow soon after, bringing an end to his home debut. Harsh one. 

Kevin De Bruyne – 6.5/10 

Wasn’t upto scratch in the first-half, but led the fightback very well in the second-half with his team down to ten men.  

Fernandinho – 7/10 

A typical workhorse-like display by the Brazilian. Asked to do the job in a number of positions over the 90 minutes and stepped up everywhere. 

David Silva – 7/10 

Struck the post in the first period. Looked the most likely to make something happen for the Sky Blues. 

Leroy Sane – 5/10 

Started as the left-sided wing-back, and did not look comfortable. Gave away the ball cheaply leading to the opener. 

Gabriel Jesus – 5/10 

Should have done better from 10 yards out in the first period. Taken off at the break. 

Sergio Aguero – 6/10 

Hesitant on a few occasions, but his link-up play was sharp. Has gone without scoring in seven league games against Everton now.  

Substitutes 

Raheem Sterling – 7.5/10 

Came on for Jesus at the restart. Added more dynamism to the City attack and got them back with the late goal. 

Danilo – 7/10 

Replaced Stones after the hour mark. Played an important role after coming on.  

Bernardo Silva – 6/10 

Came on for Sane with 20 minutes left.
