JOE HART – 6
The rating may seem low, but Hart didn’t really have that much to do other than collecta few crosses. He was pretty much a spectator all game.
BACARY SAGNA – 7
Worked tirelessly all game, defending well when required and supporting Navas as much as possible up the other end of the pitch.
VINCENT KOMPANY – 8 (Man of the Match)
With him in the side we look so much more organised. His excellent distribution from the back is also key to our brand of football.
NICOLAS OTAMENDI – 7
Didn’t have much to do, but dealt with most of the challenges that came his way. If I’m being super critical, he needs to stop throwing himself to the ground so much.
GAEL CLICHY – 7
Solid defensively, and played some good passes out from the back. Ultimately though, we struggle with him in an attacking sense. He just doesn’t produce enough quality after crossing the halfway line.
JESUS NAVAS – 5
Time and time again he frustrated. Had so much time yet produced no real quality. His standard of crossing was also poor, often not beating the first man.
FERNANDO – 6
Swept up well in front of the back four, but in a game like today’s his limitations show. Can’t pick out killer passes like the best midfielders.
FERNANDINHO – 7
Started the game like a house on fire, but his influence diminished. Never lacks effort, but today he was unable to help us break Norwich down.
DAVID SILVA – 6
Started well again, but in his current condition has a tendency to slow us down at times. The second half he hugely frustrated, and for some reason he refuses to shoot.
WILFRIED BONY – 4
Not good enough. Doesn’t work hard enough, doesn’t try to get involved, and he’ll be rightly sold this summer.
SERGIO AGUERO – 7
Arguably our best attacker, worked effortlessly but just couldn’t find a way past John Ruddy.
RAHEEM STERLING – 6
Provided nothing when he came on, running into blind alleys. Didn’t help though that Norwich had ten men behind the ball.
KELECHI IHEANACHO – 6
Couldn’t really get involved, though it wasn’t for a want of trying.
PABLO ZABALETA – N/A
No time to mark.
