Top-class Silva, Fantastic Fernandinho – Here’s how the Man City stars performed in the 3-1 win vs Man United


Manchester City Player Ratings vs Man United: Here’s how the Cityzens performed

Manchester City enjoyed the derby day bragging rights as they coast past city rivals Manchester United with a scoreline of 3-1. David Silva opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola’s men before Sergio Aguero doubled the lead just after the half-time break.

Romelu Lukaku won a penalty for the Red Devils, which was converted by Anthony Martial to make it twitchy for the Cityzens. However, Ilkay Gundogan settled the issue with a neat finish four minutes from time. The alarming thing from Jose Mourinho’s point of view should be the German’s uncharted run in the box.

For Guardiola and his boys, the result means 32 points of the possible 36, two clear of second-placed Liverpool and 12 clear of rivals from the same city.

Here’s how the defending champions fared in the game:

Manchester City Player Ratings

Ederson (6)

His distribution was spot on, however, a rash moment in bringing down Lukaku gave United a sniff.

Kyle Walker

Kyle Walker (7)

The Englishman was assured defensively. Kept an in-form Martial quiet and went forward on a few occasions.

John Stones (7)

A composed performance at the back. His partnership with Aymeric Laporte is growing each day.

Aymeric Laporte (7)

A secured presence at the back for the Cityzens. Extended his unbeaten run in the Premier League to 21.

Benjamin Mendy (7)

The Frenchman had very little to do defensively, hence, was pushed forward at every opportunity.

Fernandinho (8)

Won the ball time and time again to keep the team ticking. Played a part in the build-up for the second goal.

David Silva

David Silva (8)

Scored the opener and ran the midfield show with typical poise and excellent ball usage.

Bernardo Silva (8)

An influential figure in central midfield. Cut the ball back in a dangerous area for David Silva to pounce on. Made the third goal.

Riyad Mahrez (6)

Poor final ball execution led to attacks being broken down. Was deservedly subbed with 30 minutes to go. Assisted the second goal though.

Raheem Sterling (7)

Worked hard throughout the game and got into decent positions at times. His final ball was not quite up there.

Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero (8)

Scored from a difficult angle and caused United a plenty of problems.


Leroy Sane (Subbed on after 61 mins) (6)

Livened up the City attack just after United got one goal back.

Ilkay Gundogan (Subbed on after 75 mins) (7)

Scored the nerve-settling goal five minutes from time.

Phil Foden (Subbed on after 90 mins) (N/A)

Had no time to make an impact.
