7. James Milner – 7
Preferred ahead of Samir Nasri and this decision from Pellegrini was proven right as Milner gave a strong performance and set up Lampard for the equaliser.
25. Fernandinho (Navas, 73′) – 6
Drafted back in to stifle Cesc Fabregas and Willian and did so relatively well and is likely to be called upon more in the future.
42. Yaya Toure – 5
On the biggest stage the 31-year-old stuttered once more and after a summer of disagreements with the club Toure is yet to find his form of last season.
21. David Silva – 5
Couldn’t really get involved in the game as Jose Mourinho’s defence kept the attacking midfielder quiet.
