Manchester City locked horns with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they looked to earn a win on the road in the Premier League. The Mancunian club dominated the game in the first half but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Riyad Mahrez finally managed to break the deadlock in the 63rd minute when Riyad Mahrez found the back of the net. The contest finished with Man City securing a narrow 1-0 win away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester City player fared during the match against the Blues.

GK: Ederson – 7/10

The Brazilian keeper made a couple of decent saves at the back and secured an easy clean sheet at home.

CB: Kyle Walker – 6.5/10

He was solid when defending at the back but could last only 45 minutes.

CB: John Stones – 7.5/10

Stones gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and did enough to earn a clean sheet tonight.

CB: Nathan Ake – 7/10

Ake didn’t do much wrong when defending inside his half and was unfortunate to hit the post.

CM: Rodri – 7.5/10

He anchored the midfield with conviction and was accurate when distributing the ball from midfield.

CM: Bernardo Silva – 7/10

Silva was a positive influence at both ends of the field but lacked quality in the final third.

RM: Joao Cancelo – 6.5/10

The Portuguese talent made two good runs with the ball but got replaced in the 45th minute.

RAM: Ilkay Gundogan – 7/10

Gundogan did his fair share of defending and managed to engineer two meaningful chances in the final third.

LAM: Kevin De Bruyne – 7.5/10

The Belgian talent caused a lot of problems for the opposition defenders and was a constant menace in front of goal.

LM: Phil Foden – 6/10

Foden had one bright moment in the game but got substituted in the 59th minute.

ST: Erling Haaland – 6.5/10

Haaland caused some headaches for the Chelsea defenders but failed to register a goal.

Substitutes:

CB: Manuel Akanji – 6.5/10

He was a solid presence on the defensive third of the pitch.

RM: Rico Lewis – 6/10

Lewis didn’t do much wrong at the back.

LM: Jack Grealish – 7/10

He picked up an assist for setting up Mahrez’s goal.

RM: Riyad Mahrez – 7/10

Mahrez made an instant impact off the bench and scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute.

CM: Kalvin Phillips – N/A

He hardly had any time to influence the game after coming on in the 85th minute.
