Here are the Manchester City player ratings from City’s pulsating 4-all draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It was a classic Premier League encounter with both sides going toe to toe with each other over the 90 minutes. For Manchester City, the result keeps the champions top of the Premier League table with a one-point lead at the top heading into the international break.
Manchester City player ratings:
Ederson-7/10: Made a couple of big saves and was composed in possession against the Chelsea press. Needed more support from his defence.
Kyle Walker-4/10: Was given a torrid time by Raheem Sterling before Sterling was switched to the opposite flank. A rare off-performance from the City captain.
Manuel Akanji-7.5/10: Equalised for his side just before half-time. Was City’s best player at the back as the champion’s defence had a poor night.
Ruben Dias-3/10: His worst performance for some time. Was guilty of diving in too often and conceded Chelsea’s stoppage-time penalty by diving in recklessly. Was also poor in possession with his giveaway of possession leading to Chelsea’s second goal of the night.
Josko Gvardiol-4.5/10: Made one monumental error for Chelsea’s second goal. Was better in the second half than the first in a rare off day for Gvardiol.
Rodri-6/10: A rare down day for Rodri. Looked to have won the game for his side but his late goal was cancelled out by a late Cole Palmer penalty.
Bernardo Silva-9/10: City’s man of the match. Was all over the pitch and calmed the team down in the second half. Is almost the premier midfielder in the Premier League now if not world football.
Julian Alvarez-6.5/10: Was poor in the first half but came to life in the second. Set up City’s third with a precise assist for Haaland to bundle home.
Phil Foden-7.5/10: Provided a threat on City’s right and gave Cucurella a torrid time. Was unlucky not to score on several occasions.
Jeremy Doku-6.5/10: He was a constant threat on City’s left-hand side although not as damaging as previous games. A good learning experience for the Belgian international.
Erling Haaland-8/10: Scored twice and was a constant threat throughout the game. His movement and all-round game were superb.
Jack Grealish-6/10: Came on for Doku in the 58th minute. He gave City more control in possession but his final delivery was just off.
Mateo Kovacic-6/10: Brought on to help City control midfield late on. Made one crunching tackle on Raheem Sterling late.
