Man City player ratings vs Crystal Palace: Toure and Aguero toil to no avail

Posted by

Manchester City’s title hopes were effectively ended after they lost 2-1 away to Crystal Palace. A late Yaya Toure strike failed to ignite a comeback after Glenn Murray and Jason Puncheon had given Alan Pardew’s men a 2-0 lead despite City’s dominance.

Here’s how the players rated:

GK- Joe Hart 6

Should have perhaps positioned himself better for the second goal, but made some crucial saves when the defence were breached.

RB- Bacary Sagna 6

Attempted to play the offside trap for the opening goal, and was unlucky that the flag did not go up. Made some decent runs which helped his team attack.

CB- Vincent Kompany 6

Made some crunching challenges, but never managed to keep Glenn Murray quiet -something the old Kompany would never fail to do.

CB- Martin Demichelis 7

Slow to react for the first goal, and could perhaps have prevented Murray getting to the ball first, but is understanding the English game better, and has become a calming influence, rather than the liability he seemed to be when he first joined the club.
