Manchester City and Tottenham have played out an entertaining 3-all draw at the Etihad. The game promised to be an entertaining affair and it didn’t disappoint. City will be left to rue some missed chances in the first half when Jeremy Doku and Julian Alvarez hit the woodwork. Erling Haaland also missed a gilt-edged chance in the first half. Jack Grealish looked to have given City all three points when he scored in the 81st minute. But it wasn’t to be as Dejan Kulusevski scored in the 90th minute to earn Spurs a valuable point. Here are the City player ratings from an enthralling clash at the Etihad.
City player ratings:
Ederson- 6/10: Will be disappointed to concede Son’s opener. Could do little about Spurs other two goals.
Kyle Walker- 6/10: Wasn’t tested a lot at right back. Could possibly have done better to stop the delivery for Spurs late equaliser.
Ruben Dias- 7/10: A much better performance from Dias after looking shaky in recent weeks. Looked more like himself with some crucial blocks.
Manual Akanji- 6.5/10: Once again was polished on the ball and rarely made a mistake at the back.
Josko Gvardiol- 6/10: Was wasteful with possession at times in the final third. Typically calm at the back when required.
Rodri- 6.5/10: Did his job in midfield but does appear to lack support in the centre of the pitch. Will miss City’s clash with Aston Villa after being booked for the fifth time this season.
Bernardo Silva- 7.5/10: Was all over the pitch as usual and his pressing was a highlight. Probably City’s best player over the 90 minutes.
Phil Foden- 7/10: Capped off a quality team goal with a composed finish. Couldn’t get into the game as often as he’d have liked as City primarily attacked down the left.
Jeremy Doku- 6/10: Hit the bar in the first half and threatened at times. Needs to be more decisive on occasions. Substituted just after half-time with an injury concern.
Julian Alvarez- 7/10: Set up Phil Foden’s goal with a lovely little ball. Was busy in the first half but faded out in the second. Looks to be returning to form of late.
Erling Halaand- 6.5/10: Missed two gilt-edged opportunities in the first half. Set up what looked like the winner for Jack Grealish with a wonderful ball. Not his day in front of goal but still affected the game.
Jack Grealish- 7/10: Looked to have won the game for City but wasn’t to be. Will also miss the Aston Villa through suspension.
Rico Lewis- 6.5/10: A busy performance when introduced. Gave his side much-needed energy after a flat second-half performance from the champions.
Nathan Ake- N/A: Not on long enough to mark but was beaten by Kulusevski for Tottenham’s third.
Mateo Kovacic– N/A: Not on long enough go mark.
