Man City player ratings as Riyad Mahrez and Fernandinho run the show against Preston – Stuart Brennan – .

Zack Steffen
You had to be vigilant to sweep as Barkhuizen threatened and a few times – not a bad comeback after 24 hours – 7

João Cancelo

One of City’s liveliest players, teaming up well with Mahrez and always seeking those arching passes for lead runners – 7

Ruben Dias

Just a day after his return, the big man was asked to leave, and he returned smoothly without any real alarm – 6

Nathan Ake

Comfortable kicking the ball around his own box, another who was rushed into action after hardly any practice – 6

Benjamin mendy

A few headless moments at first, but his run and cushioned head to take Palmer’s start was classy and deserved a finish – 6


Climbed straight up, pacing the midfield as he owns it, sliding and throwing passes into the men in front at will – 8


Iker Pozo

He lost the ball the first time he received it, and it disappeared from sight for long periods after that – 5

Cole Palmer

A great job getting the free kick for the first goal, but how he created a simple chance thanks to Mendy’s nod is guessable! – 6

Riyad Mahrez

The exceptional player exposed, folding a brilliant free kick and creating the keeper Palmer missed – 8

Ben knight

I found it difficult against big, strong central defenders, but I continued to run races and test the defense – 6

Morgan Rogers

Looked like a player who barely kicked a ball for good in a week – his touch was at the start and it affected him – 5


Claudio Gomes

(ht) Grown up in the game as Fernandinho’s replacement – 7

Philippe Sandler

(ht) Well inserted while the young people turned the screw – 7

Matt Smith

(ht) Looked sharp like the liaison man – 7

Sam Edozie

(ht) Got his goal very well – 7

Luc Bolton

(ht) He was asked to play left-back and stuck to it – 6

Patrick Roberts

(ht) Didn’t make the most of a storefront opportunity – 5

Yan couto

(ht) Neat and efficient appearance at the rear right – 7

Pablo Moreno

(ht) Technically correct but needed more than a goal threat in the attacking role – 6

James McAtee

(ht) Nice disguised pass to install Edozie – 7

Finlay Burns

(ht) A newcomer under the age of 18 insensitive to the rise – 7

Ciaran Slicker

(65 min) Stretched after awkward fall – no mark
