Quiet but effective performance by the Brazilian midfielder as he and Toure dominated the battle in the engine room. 7/10.
CM) Yaya Toure
The Ivorian was criticised on numerous occasions last season, but Toure proved once again why he’s still the best central midfielder in England with a brilliant performance and the finish for City’s second was something special. 8/10.
AMC) David Silva – MOTM
Yet another majestic performance from the Spanish playmaker, has a legitimate claim for City’s opener which deflected in off him and also provided an assist for Kompany in the second half. 9/10.
