Manchester City player ratings

Ederson: 6 – Couldn’t do much on the goal. Had little else to do. Lovely passes, at times.

Kyle Walker: 6 – One good run in the first half and a fine cross in the second. Couldn’t attack as much as he would like.

John Stones: 6 – Caught out of position on a few occasions and looked nervous.

Ruben Dias: 6 – Caught out by Werner’s pace on more than a few occasions. Unsettled.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: 5 – Caught out of position on the Chelsea goal. Shaky.

Ilkay Gundogan: 5 – Booked. Never had control in midfield as the lone holder in the first half.

Phil Foden: 6 – Denied by great blocks from Rudiger, Christensen. Ran his socks off.

Bernardo Silva: 5 – Never had an impact on the game in a deeper midfield role.

Riyad Mahrez: 5 – A couple of nice touches. Almost scored late on. Not much else.

Kevin de Bruyne: 5 – Poor display as a false nine role was capped off by being injured.

Raheem Sterling: 5 – Bad first touch on a big chance early on and never got going.

Substitution
Gabriel Jesus (58′ on for De Bruyne): 6 – Buzzed around and showed urgency.
Fernandinho (64′ on for Silva): 6 – Did his best to break up the play.
Sergio Aguero (77′ on for Sterling): 6 – Nice dink which didn’t come off.


Chelsea player ratings

Edouard Mendy: 6 – Didn’t have much to do. At all. One good claim from Aguero’s chip.

Cesar Azpilicueta: 8 – Heroic clearance at the back post. Captain’s display.

Thiago Silva: 6 – Subbed off with injury in the first half. Was solid before that.

Antonio Rudiger: 8 – Amazing performance. Huge block in the first half to deny Foden.

Reece James: 9 – Superb display at right back from the academy product. Great at the back and dangerous in attack.

N’Golo Kante: 9 – He was everywhere. Won the ball back time and time again. Shut down De Bruyne. Immense.

Jorginho: 7 – Kept Chelsea ticking over and his experience was vital in the closing stages.

Ben Chilwell: 8 – Linked up really well with Mount down the left. Solid defensively.

Mason Mount: 8 – Quality on the ball to keep it and create whenever Chelsea needed him too. Great assist for the winner.

Kai Havertz: 8 – Scored his first-ever Champions League goal at the perfect moment. Cool and composed. Worked his socks off.

Timo Werner: 7 – His pace caused problems for City and although he missed a few big chances, his run was key on Havertz’s goal.

Substitute
Andreas Christensen (39′ on for Silva): 8 – Immense after coming off the bench. Brilliant blocks and clearances.
Christian Pulisic (66′ on for Werner): 6.5 – Should have scored, but was perfect player to cause problems on the break.
Mateo Kovacic (80′ on for Mount): 6 – Helped Chelsea calm things down late on.
