One 0 And One 8! Manchester City Players Rated And Slated As They See Off Burnley

A first half red card saw City make heavy weather of a match which was supposed to a breather after a hectic month and with Everton and Tottenham coming up, a much-needed time to test their bench strength. Neither transpired as City had to give heart and soul to for the 3 points.

In the second half, Gael City cut in on his right foot to give the home team a shock lead after which Sergio Aguero showed his class and capped a special performance with a goal from the tightest of angles. Ben Mee got one back for the visitors amidst a scuffle in the penalty box but that was that from the visitors as City shut the game.

Let us take a look at how the City players rated over the 90 minutes.

BRAVO- 4/10

Just not being able to settle. Another nervy display and the keeping during the goal was embarrassing. His height or the lack of it is only compounding matters.

SAGNA- 7/10

A calm and composed display from the Frenchman. Did not venture too much as the red card increased his workload considerably. Kept things solid.

OTAMENDI- 7/10

Got off to a rocky start with mistimed challenges galore but improved considerably after the break along with the rest of the team.

KOLAROV- 6/10

Did not commit any blunder, which is a surprise considering his displays this season. Handled the physicality of Gray pretty well.

CLICHY- 7.5/10

First goal at home by the Frenchman. Extremely crucial one as well. Got forward well and although did have his iffy moments at the back, a good display nonetheless.

FERNANDINHO- 0/10

Three red cards in six games for a player who is considered having one of the calmest heads in the team. Left his team in a lurch in a must-win match. Worrying signs with his displays also dipping lately.

TOURE- 7/10

Solid showing from the big Ivorian. Nothing spectacular but kept the play going and gave City the control especially when down to 10 men.

Manchester City v Burnley - Premier League

NAVAS-5/10

Same old story from the Spaniard. Gets the ball in promising positions but lacks the awareness and the composure along with technical ability to make use of the position.

DE BRUYNE- 7/10

Better display than last game. Still not at his level but increased in importance as the game wore on. Laid on the pass which led to Aguero’s goal.

STERLING- 7/10

A slightly scruffy display from the youngster. He still has a long way to go and under Pep can really turn into one of the best.

IHEANACHO- 4/10

Wasted two opportunities. Just can’t take his chances when afforded starts.

SUBSTITUTES

SILVA- 7/10

Control and class when brought on from the bench.

AGUERO- 8/10

Completely changed the complexion of the game. Match winner.

STONES- NA/10
