Share this on

Pep Guardiola made it four wins from four as his Manchester City picked up a well deserved win at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The away side had the lion’s share of possession throughout and at times were giving United a real footballing lesson.

Indeed had it not been for the foolish antics of keeper Claudio Bravo, City could have won far more comfortably.

Manchester United

David De Gea – 6

Didn’t put a foot wrong, could do nothing about City goals.

Luis Antonio Valencia – 7

Great going forward, improving game after game and can even cross the ball now!

Eric Bailly – 6

Didn’t have the best of games but a last gasp tackle kept Man City from netting a third.

Daley Blind – 4

Dutchman was out of position on a number of occasions, poor.

Luke Shaw – 5

Anonymous in the first half slightly less anonymous in the second, then subbed.

Marouane Fellaini – 6

Put in some strong challenges and one of the few players who didn’t constantly lose possession.

Paul Pogba – 4

Flattered to deceive. Beaten in the air by everyone but did have a couple of strong purposeful runs.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 4

Lazy as hell and unable to get in the game. Subbed at half-time.

Wayne Rooney – 6

Tried to get his side going but was largely ineffective.


Jesse Lingard – 5

Lightweight in possession and offered little.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic – 6

Very quiet but was on hand when needed, calmly slotting home late in the first half.



Marcus Rashford – 6

Was lively from the second he came on as a half-time sub but was in and out of the game from then on.

Ander Herrera – 5

Didn’t do much

Anthony Martial – 5

Did even less

Manchester City


Claudio Bravo – 3

Horrendous. Guilty of mistake that led to first goal and almost hit self-destruct button late in the first half. Could have got a red card for challenge on Rooney in the second half.

Bacary Sagna – 7

Good game from the Frenchman both in defence and attack.

John Stones – 7

Calm and composed on the ball and really beginning to blossom at City.

Nicolas Otamendi – 7

Argentine rarely put a foot wrong and had Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his back pocket.

Aleksandr Kolarov – 8

Superb display from the cultured wing-back, didn’t put a foot wrong.


Kevin De Bruyne – 9

Man of the match. Calm finish to give City the lead and provided assist when he hit the post ahead of their second and once again hit the woodwork in the second period.

Fernandinho – 7

Did a solid job of keeping Pogba quiet.

David Silva – 8

Spaniard oozed class in the centre of the park.

Raheem Sterling – 6

Fairly quiet game but the England man was solid.


Kelechi Iheanacho – 8

Youngster provided the flick on for Man City’s first and tapped in for the second. Good display.

Nolito – 7

Had a barney with Fellaini and was in and out of the game.


Fernando – 6

Brought on to help close out the game, did so with relative ease

Leroy Sane – 7

Stylish cameo display
