Here’s how each Manchester City player fared during the clash against the Cherries.
Manchester City Players Rated In Emphatic Win Vs Bournemouth
Ederson Moraes 7/10
It was a fairly comfortable day for the Brazilian shot-stopper.
Kyle Walker 8/10
The Englishman’s pace helped him put an end to Bournemouth’s counter-attacks.
Nathan Ake 7/10
The Dutch centre-back rarely found himself in any trouble as Manchester City dominated possession over the course of the match.
Ruben Dias 7/10
Just like Ake, he didn’t have too much to do in terms of defence. He kept a cool head throughout the ninety minutes.
Joao Cancelo 8/10
The Portuguese left-back had a few nervous moments against Marcus Tavernier, but he fared well nonetheless.
The Spaniard didn’t have much defending to do at the centre of the park, so he spent most of his time in Bournemouth’s half, linking up the play.
Ilkay Gundogan 8/10
The German midfielder made some clever runs from midfield to slice open Scott Parker’s defence.
Kevin De Bruyne 9.5/10
The Belgian international was the best player on the pitch by a mile. He spotted his teammates’ runs very precisely and wasn’t afraid of having a go at goal himself.
Riyad Mahrez 7/10
Fancy footwork and lightning-fast pace helped him create plenty of chances for his teammates.
Phil Foden 8/10
The 22-year-old got himself a goal, but he was too selfish with the opportunities on a couple of occasions.
Erling Haaland 7/10
The Norwegian striker found himself centimetres away from some of the clear-cut chances his teammates created; however, it was just not his day in front of the goal. The signs are encouraging nonetheless.
Jack Grealish 7/10
He came on for Foden at halftime.
John Stones 7/10
He replaced Ruben Dias at the 65-minute mark.
Bernardo Silva 7/10
He added energy to City’s midfield.
Julian Alvarez 7/10
The Argentine striker got some crucial minutes.
