Manchester City ratings vs Southampton

Bravo – 6

Very little to do until Southampton got going late, good save to tip decent shot from Boufal around his post.

Walker – 7

A quick and powerful presence on the right, smart overlap and cross for City’s second.

Otamendi – 7

Easy header for his goal, superb tackle to dispossess Long in impressive first half and combative throughout.

Garcia – 6

Calm presence and good positioning. replaced by John Stones in second half as City consolidated

Angelino – 6

Decent effort saved on 18 minutes, constant attacking threat down left, subbed with what looked like a tight hamstring.

B Silva – 7

A return to form after a rare flat patch in season, nice cross for opener and buzzing presence throughout.

Doyle – 7

Tenacious presence as defensive shield, lovely pass through lines in first half but could have got on the ball a touch more.

Foden – 6

Involved in build up to second goal, good effort throughout but not his best night in a blue shirt.

Mahrez – 6

Plenty of trickery on show but often lacked end product, decent shot in first half well blocked and laid on Walker for City’s second goal.

Aguero – 7

Lovely finish to flowing seven man move for second and opportunistic finish for third reacting quickest to deflection.

Jesus – 7

Unfamiliar role on left side but powerful runner and excellent in the air, better up the middle.
