Ederson: A night he might as well have spent at the Parthenon for whatever he needed. 6 To cancel: Playing on the right with Walker left at rest, Cancelo continued his good season. He was solid defensively and forced the local goalkeeper to make several saves. sept

Rocks: On his second successive start in the competition, more encouraging signs. Stones showed confidence to move the ball forward and, just as important, looked tidy with no mistakes. sept

Days: He may not be the oldest or the most experienced, but Dias has still led the defense less than two months after arriving from Benfica. The kind of composed performance that shows how he became the most important center-back. sept

Mendy: Making his first start since the start of October, he was often spotted high to the left crossing balls into the box and also showed restraint to stay back when needed. sept

Rodri: A chipped pass to the wing and a whipped first effort at goal in the opening minutes signaled his positive intention, although he struggled to keep pace and the team’s display then dropped. sept

Gundogan: A fixture for Guardiola in the Champions League, he has served alongside Rodri and led the midfielder from the start. No surprise to see him help create the first goal. 6

Bernardo: Another performance that didn’t make much of an impression. While his industry shouldn’t be underestimated, he hasn’t offered much to write about. 6

Foden: City’s best offensive threat, full of confidence after their star tour for England. A confident finish to open the scoring and follow well with Mendy on the left. 8

Sterling: Back in the starting XI and captain again, he came to life with a rear wheel for the goal. and was much more lively afterwards. Booked after an argument. sept

Jesus: Worked hard and was involved in the goal but never really directly threatened in a performance that will cement any vision of him before the game. 6

Fernandinho (for Rodri, 76 years old): A sweet relaxation. 6

Mahrez (for Sterling, 76): Immediately involved on the right side of the attack. 6

Aguero (for Jesus, 78): Every time on the pitch was positive. 6
