Unused subtitles: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Soares, Pepe, Tavares, Lokonga.

Manchester city

Ederson Very lucky that no penalty was imposed for cutting Odegaard early on. Extremely lucky that his exit from his line at 1-1 did not lead to an own goal. 6

João Cancelo Kudos for playing two days after being injured in a flight, but Martinelli struggled in the opening 45 minutes. A different player after the red card takes the pressure off. 6

Ruben Dias Another commanding display on the back of the town captain. Should have opened the scoring with an early free header at the other end. seven

Aymeric Laporte An unlikely provider of help for the winning goal. Won heads and tackles, but almost made it to his own net at 1-1. seven

Nathan Ake Designated as the potential weak link on the left, the Dutchman held on to his task although Saka never made it easy for him. Sensational stop on the line at 1-1. seven

Kevin De Bruyne A hit and miss 90 minutes in total by the Belgian genius, who never stopped trying to create as soon as the ball was at his feet. 6

Rodri For Fernandinho as one of three changes from Wednesday’s 1-0 win at Brentford. Was the right man in the right place to win it for the champions. Reserve. seven

Bernardo Silva Frustrating performance by one of the stars of this season. His shirt was pulled, hence the penalty, but it looked like he was already going down. Booed and reserved. 6

Riyad Mahrez Place in Foden. Largely failed to make a good impression on the right of City’s three-way attack. Took the penalty well but at the last minute, letting a clear chance pass summed up his day. 6
