Match Coverage

City 2-2 Arsenal: player ratings

JOE HART – 6

Given little chance with either goal, but his insistence on punching crosses instead of catching them is annoying.

BACARY SAGNA – 5

He’s had a good season but today was poor defensively, and didn’t offer enough as an attacking option.

NICOLAS OTAMENDI – 6

Some woeful decisions with the ball at his feet, though his defending was excellent in parts. (He also stayed on his feet)

ELIAQUIM MANGALA – 5

Very poor for the second goal, and he struggled with the physical presence of Giroud.

GAEL CLICHY – 5

Had a mare for the first goal, which seemed to impact his confidence, and as is all too common he offered us nothing in an attacking sense.

JESUS NAVAS – 5

Plenty of energy and effort, but again his final ball was woeful. Hard to see if he’ll have any future at the club.

FERNANDO – 8 (Man of the Match)

One of his best games for City. Won plenty of tackles, and set up a great chance for Aguero in the first half. He’s had a much improved second season.

FERNANDINHO – 5

His form has dipped lately and today was one of his worst games for City. Sloppy on the ball, and the game seemed to pass him by. Comical lack of effort on the second Arsenal goal.

KEVIN DE BRUYNE – 6

Scored a great solo goal, but was otherwise quite ineffective. Needs to up his work rate for next season.

KELECHI IHEANACHO – 5

Against tough opposition today he had a nightmare. Squandered a great chance at 2-1, and was pretty much ineffective.

SERGIO AGUERO – 7

Scored a wonderful goal, and was arguably our only attacking player who showed a bit of fight.

SUBS:

RAHEEM STERLING – 5

Largely ineffective. Another who will have to improve next season.

YAYA TOURE – 5

Struggled to have any effect when he came on. Probably his last home game for City.

WILFRIED BONY – 6

Hit the bar with a great effort, but his off the ball movement leaves a lot to be desired.
