Here we have with us the Manchester City player ratings in their impressive win against PSG. Manchester City were ready to seek vengeance after their 2-0 loss against PSG at Parc des Princes.

Match Report: Man City 2 – 1 PSG

City were dominating the game from the start and PSG were mostly looking for counters and breaks. The Citizens were really close to opening the scoring with close chances from Mahrez and Zinchenko, while Gundogan was able to find the post.

Sterling equalized the score with a tap-in coming from a great run by Kyle Walker and a good pass to find him by Rodri. City then again scored with a great pass from Mahrez on the right to Bernardo Silva to the left who then laid it for Gabriel Jesus to tap in.

PSG failed to create enough chances for them to score and City dominated them for most of the game. However, both Manchester City and PSG have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Manchester City Player Ratings vs PSG

Ederson – 5/10

He did not have to make too many saves and barely saw the ball. However, he could have done better in saving PSG’s goal but Mbappe was able to finish it between Ederson’s legs.

Kyle Walker – 8/10

Walker was impressive and did well to keep Mbappe’s pace at bay at times. He was instrumental in City’s first goal as he was able to cut back because of his amazing timing of runs.

John Stones – 5/10

There were very less moments that tested but failed to shut danger of Mbappe once and fortunately Mbappe failed to capitalize. However, he was not as troubled and was solid.

Ruben Dias – 6/10

Dias was able to keep the PSG frontline quiet and was not troubled as much plus he did not make any errors. He did well to keep the ball and not lose it under pressure from the PSG players at times.

Joao Cancelo – 7/10

Had better competition than the Premier League clubs he faces on his side with Hakimi, but was able to not make mistakes or errors. Almost made a similar assist to Sterling but this time to Jesus with an outside curler.

Rodri – 8/10

Rodri was very important to stop PSG’s counter. He did make some intentional fouls to stop the play and made a great pass to a great Kyle Walker run that led to City’s first goal.

Ilkay Gundogan – 7/10

He was unlucky to hit the post with his powerful strike. Overall he did well to manage the tempo and create some attacking chances in the game. He completed 61/63 passes in the game.

Oleksandr Zinchenko – 5/10

Man City’s injury crisis made him start in the center midfield position instead of being a left-back. However, he was not able to make much of a difference in the game. Had one good shot blocked by Marquinhos.

Bernardo Silva – 7/10

He started as a false-9 but later looked more comfortable to play on the left or deeper in midfield. He did well to set up Gabriel Jesus for City’s 2nd goal. His ability to get away from defenders and defensive contributions is making him undroppable for Guardiola.

Riyad Mahrez – 8/10

Mahrez was important for City’s attack and was a constant threat from the right. He played in really good passes and made Keylor Navas make some great saves. He also gave the final pass for City’s 2nd goal.

Raheem Sterling – 7/10

Although he was finding it hard to get back into Pep’s playing 11, he is gradually starting to find form. He stretched his left foot to finish a beautiful City move with an assist from Kyle Walker.

Substitutes

Gabriel Jesus – 7/10

Came on for Zinchenko and made the difference. Did well to take his chance set to him by Silva. He played as a striker and scored even though Guardiola deployed him on the right for most of the season.
