It was the ultimate goal-fest of the Premier League season so far at the Etihad Stadium, which saw a rampant Manchester City putting 7 goals past Stoke City this weekend. All their players looked in great touch, as the Citizens’ united effort saw them clinch three points in emphatic fashion from their seventh win of the season so far.
Pep Guardiola is looking a very determined man this term and is eyeing the supreme prize in the Premier League. He is marshalling his troops in the right direction to get results in their favour, inching closer towards the one trophy missing from his cabinet.
The Player ratings for Manchester City are here below-
The Brazilian goalkeeper played well and did not have to do much throughout the match. However, the two goals that he conceded are set to leave a bad taste in the mouth for the new custodian.
Kyle Walker- 5
The English right back played well throughout the match but his only mistake proved to provide some hope for the opposition as it ended at the back of the wrong goal.
John Stones- 6
The English defender was at his best throughout the match but could have been a little more careful not to concede the two goals that rekindled the hope for the Potters.
Nicolas Otamendi- 7
The Argentine centre-back dished out a very prim performance for his side and his partnership with John Stones worked superbly for his side, keeping them from missing Vincent Kompany.
Fabian Delph- 6
In absence of Benjamin Mendy, the Englishman took the opportunity to make a mark with both hands and played diligently to prove his worth in the side.
The Brazilian enforcer showed his mettle once again in the middle of the pitch and dished out a brilliant performance, with his goal from way outside the box being the icing on the cake.
David Silva- 9
The captain took the responsibility to lead his side to another triumph and also contributed with a goal in the 27th minute to add to the tally for his side against the Potters.
Kevin De Bruyne- 8
With two assists to his name, the Belgian midfielder once again made complete justice to the faith Guardiola has shown in him and was the main man for them in marshalling the midfield.
Raheem Sterling- 8
The player once again shone brightly for his side and scored the second goal of the rampant show that the Citizens dished out at the Etihad this afternoon.
Leroy Sane- 9
The German youngster continued his run in form, scoring a goal and laying off an assist to set up a famous win for his side on home turf.
Gabriel Jesus- 10
The Brazilian scored a brilliant brace in the match and led them to their fifth consecutive victory in the absence of the Argentine spearhead Sergio Aguero.
Bernardo Silva- 8
The Portuguese forward was brought on in the 63rd minute and played brilliantly, scoring a goal to make it 7-2.
Yaya Toure- 4
Came on for Fernandinho and played well as an enforcer.
Played too little to warrant a rating.
