Chelsea player ratings vs Man City

C

helsea gave their Champions League qualification hopes a huge boost by fighting back from a goal down to beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad.

Raheem Sterling sent Man City into half-time 1-0 up and 45 minutes away from being confirmed as champions, but a Sergio Aguero penalty miss proved costly as goals from Hakim Ziyech and Marcos Alonso earned Thomas Tuchel’s Blues three valuable points.

Embarrassed Aguero when getting up to deny the City striker a Panenka. Impressive in the air. 

His assist for Ziyech makes it 33 in the Premier League – a club record for a defender. Solid at the back as well. 

Caught out early on when tussling with Jesus to allow Torres a run on goal and then at fault for City’s opener when overpowered by the Brazilian again. Injury will be a concern for the final weeks of the season.

In control throughout. Another impressive performance – particularly in the second half when City reduced to very few chances.

His pounces in midfield forced Chelsea’s best moments in the first half. Played a big part in Chelsea taking control of midfield after the break. 

Really dominated Mendy on the right-hand side with his powerful runs, forcing the City man retreat. 

Tormented City in the FA Cup, but didn’t have so much joy on this occasion. A frustration for Tuchel was the failure to get him running at City often enough.

Guilty of conceding a penalty, which was a shame given him confident performance otherwise. 

Attacked well on the left to keep Cancelo occupied and reduce the City man’s threat going forward. Priceless winner at the death.
