Manchester City Starting XI

Defence

Ederson – Another clean sheet which takes his tally to 20 for the season. Didn’t have much to do which seems the niche when City win big.

Player Rating: 7

Joao Cancelo – Had a difficult start with an early miss. However, assisted Sterling’s goal and bettered his performance as the match went on.

Player Rating: 7

Ruben Dias – Substituted at half time possibly overseeing an injury. Would be a great miss for City if he is ruled out for the rest of the season as they are pushing for the title.

Player Rating: 6.5

Aymeric Laporte – Another inspired performance from the centre back. Scored City’s second and looked in good touch.

Player Rating: 7.5

Oleksandr Zinchenko – Zinchenko is improving at City with his mature performances and could soon be the first choice centre back. Assisted Foden’s goal as well.

Midfield

Rodri – Another solid performance from Rodri as he controlled the City midfield. Scored a deserved header in the second half and secured a comprehensive win for the Blues.

Player Rating: 8

Gundogan – Not the best of games but not the worst either.

Player Rating: 6.5

Kevin De Bruyne – Running out of words to describe De Bruyne. Another extraordinary performance. Deserved MOM.

Player Rating: 8

Attack

Jack Grealish – Slowly turning into the player we used to see at Villa. Solid performance.

Player Rating: 6.5

Raheem Sterling – Scored twice and put the game to bed. Sterling is looking good and is just what City need before the final push.

Player Rating: 8

Gabriel Jesus – Quiet game for Jesus however upped his game in the second half.

Player Rating: 6

Subs

Fernandinho – Did well considering he was substituted as a centre back after Dias was injured.

Player Rating: 6.5

Foden – scored a goal and added one more to Newcastle’s misery.

Player Rating: 7

Egan-Riley – Not much to say besides he made his Premier League debut.

Player Rating: N/A
