Ederson – 7
Could do nothing he turned into a spectator for the hours majority and conceded. But his finger-tip rescue from Willian on was the difference between a setback that might have been fatal plus achievement for City.
Joao Cancelo – 6
Mostly neat and tidy without making a firm impression. Not too bad convincing either.
John Stones – 7
Delivered gently solid displays sort his critics were crying out for. On the rare times when City were bothered, it had been a result of a lack of protection instead of a deficiency of nous from their defenders. Stones was pivotal to the improved showing in the trunk.
Fernandinho – 8
There has been a word of praise for a City centre-back this season but Fernandinho should be applauded at the center of the hosts defence for his unflappable and relaxing screen. Repeatedly snuffed openings to the traffic out and mostly kept Tammy Abraham quiet.
Benjamin Mendy – 6
Badly exposed with an too slow across the floor and excessively slow to respond to the threat. Does he make City more powerful?
Rodri – 5
A functionality in keeping with all the nagging belief that his procedure of adapting to the Premier League is currently getting longer than expected. Struggled to offer Citys has been replaced after 50 minutes and rearguard any type of security.
David Silva – 6
Buzzed around and produced some of his trademark sublime deft touches but was not really in his very best and it was no surprise that he had been replaced with 20 minutes to visit Phil Foden.
Kevin De Bruyne – 9
Deflected equaliser was shown to be the games turning point. There was not any surprise concerning De Bruyne function as game-changer while the goal made a debt to fortune. The Belgian has exploded to the status of Citys talisman. A pivotal presence during.
Riyad Mahrez – 9
Citys most dangerous offender with a distance. Beautiful solo target before the break was reminiscent of the participant who inspired Leicester to the Premier League title. Just disappointment in a functionality beyond reproach was that his inability to add to his record of providing four assists and four objects by his past two starts at a City shirt.
Raheem Sterling – 7
Consistently sparky but never quite managed to light the point . Tired of the marginal offside call going in the 93rd minute when Sterlings goal was ruled out half or with a millimetre an Sterlings night a screen from City.
Sergio Aguero – 6
Hit on the bar when he should have scored before half-time and blazed one attempt a very long way broad as his profligate form at Anfield continued. After enduring a knock however a rapturous reception from a grateful Etihad audience, A night to forget for Aguero completed with the world.
Kepa Arrizabalaga – 6
Not a massive amount he could do about the goals of City. After he sent a kick directly into Aguero, whose shot came back off the bar, however, kept Chelsea from the match with a great save from Mahrez midway through the second half fortunate not to be penalized in the half .
Cesar Azpilicueta – 7
Struggled with the speed of Citys attackers at times but made two or three significant blocks and tackles, including in the second halfof the Switched to left-back during the second period to help Chelsea handle the danger of Mahrez.
Fikayo Tomori – 6
Made a few clearances – over any of his team-mates, actually – but did not seem comfortable up against Citys star-studded assault.
Kurt Zouma – 6
Couldnt get enough of the body supporting the chance for the equaliser of City of De Bruyne, the deflection wrong-footing Kepa. Had some moments but didnt succeed in keeping Aguero quiet for long periods.
Emerson – 5
Sent an early shot straight. Mahrez for Citys second objective but fought defensively and beat too easily showed plenty of willingness to get forward. Hooked for Reece James early in the second half and might struggle to keep his place.
Jorginho – 6
At the heart of items for Chelsea, just as normal. Was reliable appeared to tire until he was substituted by Mason Mount from the next half also but did have a few awkward moments on the ball.
Mateo Kovacic – 8
Another strong showing from the Croat, that discovered a team-mate for instance, lofted ball that introduced Kante to get Chelseas opener, with 88 of the 93 passes. Midfield brought difficulties for City is run throughout by his driving and he mucked in defensively too.
NGolo Kante – 7
Took his goal superbly and went close to adding another after he fired wide from Azpilicuetas cut-back early in the second half. Typically industrious from ownership, although he had been caught Citys equaliser.
Willian – 6
Chelsea player on more than a few events this season, but not as effective as usual here. Had some fantastic minutes and worked but flashed an early shot wide when he probably ought to have struck on the target and chose the wrong decisions on the ball sometimes. Shot on the bar
Christian Pulisic – 6
Sensational recently but did not have much joy on the left flank of Chelsea . Lots of endeavour but, despite scoring five goals in the three Premier League looks, didnt manage one shot on target. Fortunate, perhaps, not to be substituted in the second half.
Tammy Abraham – 6
His motion and physicality caused City problems in the early phases, but he had been generally marshalled then. Had a couple of sniffs at goal but no clear opportunities to grow his tally for the season. Finally replaced with Michy Batshuayi.
Reece James – 6
Brought on to provide attacking threat to Chelsea . Revealed composure on the ball, got forward well and also lived a City penalty shout when he tied with Aguero.
Michy Batshuayi – 5
After coming for Abraham, Do not get much of a kick.
Mason Mount – 6
A superbly hit time.
