Man City vs Burnley Player Ratings: Excellent Phil Foden and Good David Silva – Simon Bajkowski

Ederson: He didn’t have much to do, but he did everything as well as we hoped. He was out of his box minutes after the game and last week’s unfortunate showdown with Garcia has not affected his confidence. 7 7

I cancel: A performance that was good enough for the night without putting Walker on the spot. A few weak moments, and he sold Otamendi short to almost let Vydra in where he won a yellow card while going down to the front to stop the movement. 7 7

Otamendi: Guardiola predicted that City would need a physical presence against Burnley and, although the injuries meant that it was not the expected test, Otamendi was still alert on his first outing since the restart. 7 7

Fernandinho: He played the role of Laporte very well when he intervened for the Frenchman, with his excellent ball to Mahrez creating the second goal. Taking off after an hour, perhaps with the biggest tests at Chelsea and Newcastle this week in mind. 8

Zinchenko: Defensive enough and well connected with David Silva on the left to help break the Clarettes. A voluntary option in attack with the rhythm to cover from the back if necessary. 7 7

Rodri: Some important interceptions and a cool head and passing range that Rodri has shown since coming to Etihad. A contained performance that gave the impression that there is much more to come. 8

Silva: He looks refreshed after this break and was one of only two outfielders to keep his Arsenal spot. I enjoyed the ball running down his body in the last third and was able to pass passes between Burnley’s defenders. He carried his goal well, though he seemed to tire beyond the hour mark. 8

Foden: A great way to build on what was a sharp cameo and a goal against Arsenal. Foden’s shot for the opening goal shows the composure and confidence he had in this team, and the technique was also perfect. His second was well taken and culminated in another successful performance. 9 9

Mahrez: When he can combine his wonderful touch with that hungry eye for goal, he is unstoppable and Taylor discovered that second goal. It was also encouraging to see Mahrez grab the ball for the penalty kick before anyone else could attempt to advance. 9 9

Bernard A performance that was occasionally as messy as her curly hair, but her tireless career caused trouble for Burnley, finding room in the area of ​​the field where De Bruyne normally thrives. 7 7

Omen: A frustrating start as he struggled to find space and opportunity no matter where he was on the field. His last touch earned City a penalty, and Guardiola will hope his injury isn’t serious with the busy schedule ahead. 6 6


Jesus (for Agüero, 45): A wonderful assist for Foden for the fifth goal. Was he serious? We will give you the benefit. 7 7

From Bruyne (to Mahrez, 61): The game ended before he entered. 6 6

Laporte (to Fernandinho, 61): I had very little to do. 6 6

Sane (to Foden 79): It didn’t take long for him to get involved. 6 6
