Claudio Bravo – 7
Given little chance with either goal and used the ball well when in possession, under intense pressure. Excellent save to deny Lamela from the penalty spot.
Pablo Zabaleta – 4
Constantly out of position, and his non-challenge on Rose for the first goal was pathetic. Seems his time at the top level is coming to an end.
Nicolas Otamendi – 5
Lucky to stay on the pitch after a few rash challenges. Struggled with the movement of Son all afternoon.
John Stones – 7 (Man of the Match)
Unfazed, and despite being on the losing side he was very good. Kept his composure all game, and will continue to get better.
Aleksandr Kolarov – 3
A nightmare performance. Positionally awful and his own goal was embarrassing. The Kolarov of this season has suddenly gone missing.
Jesus Navas – 4
Won’t be getting more chances if this is his level of performance. Offered nothing in an attacking sense, and his use of the ball was really poor.
Fernandinho – 5
Gave away the penalty, and struggled with the high intensity of the Spurs midfield. Improved in the second half.
Fernando – 4
Poor with his back to play, and he couldn’t break the lines of Spurs pressure with his passing. Another whose time may be running out.
David Silva – 5
Poor in the first half, much improved in the second. Didn’t really influence the game in the way we know he can.
Raheem Sterling – 5
Struggled with the pace and power of Rose, and his end product wasn’t at a good enough level. Looked understandably burnt out at the end.
Sergio Aguero – 5
Really poor. His movement wasn’t good enough, and he didn’t press the Spurs back four enough. Wasted a few presentable opportunities in the second half.
Ilkay Gundogan – 5
Struggled initially and his passing was sloppy, but started to dominate proceedings as Spurs tired.
Kelechi Iheanacho – 5
Made some clever runs in behind. Was denied by a great save from Lloris.
Leroy Sané – N/A
Came on with a few minutes to go. No time to make an impact.
