Manchester City player ratings

Ederson: 6 - Got close to the penalty kick and couldn’t do anything about Shaw’s goal. Aside from that, superb save to deny Martial.

Joao Cancelo: 5 - Very tough outing. Shaw gave him so many problems, and Rashford got behind him on several occasions. Subbed off.

Ruben Dias: 6 - Didn’t really put a foot wrong, but the entire City defense looked stunned to actually be behind in a game.

John Stones: 6 - See above. Not a bad display, but United’s counter attacks exposed City. Missed a couple of chances to score.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: 5 - Daniel James gave him a tough outing, as City’s two full backs were the weak links.

Rodri: 6 - Clipped the bar with a shot early in the second half, but couldn’t dictate the tempo.

Raheem Sterling: 5 - Really good battle with Wan-Bissaka, which he lost. Couldn’t get free in the box and missed a sitter.

Ilkay Gundogan: 6 - He made some great runs into the box but City couldn’t find him.

Kevin de Bruyne: 5 - A very rare off day from KDB, who gave the ball away sloppily on a few occasions.

Riyad Mahrez: 5 - Quiet game. Luke Shaw didn’t give him much space to operate in.

Gabriel Jesus: 4 - Gave the ball away after 20 seconds, then gave a penalty away after 35 seconds as he tried to win it back. That set the tone for a torrid display, and gave United the upper-hand from the first minute.

Kyle Walker (65' on for Cancelo): 6 - Did well defensively and sent in some great crosses.
Phil Foden (70' on for Jesus): 7 - Almost scored and was so bright after coming on.

Manchester United player ratings

Dean Henderson: 7 - Very solid as he continues to stand in for David de Gea. Looked calm and composed throughout and played a key role in Shaw’s goal.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 8 - Won his battle against Sterling, who moved centrally eventually. His good season is getting better.

Victor Lindelof: 7 - Did his job with minimum fuss and positioning was very good.

Harry Maguire: 7 - See above. Booked early on, but never looked out of control.

Luke Shaw: 9 - Stunning display as he continues his superb season. Great goal and dominated the left flank.

Scott McTominay: 7 - Did a great job to shield the back four.

Fred: 7 - See above. Worked great as a duo with McTominay on another clinical away day.

Daniel James: 7 - Always a threat and available on the counter. Worked hard and perfect for a game like this. His resurgence continues.

Bruno Fernandes: 7 - Scored his penalty kick and dictated counter attacks.

Marcus Rashford: 6 - Looked to be struggling with a shoulder injury, but battled hard. Set up Shaw for his goal and came off injured in second half.

Anthony Martial: 8 - Excellent center forward display. Won the penalty early, could have scored a few of his own and held the ball up really well.

Mason Greenwood (73' on for Rashford): 6 - Worked hard defensively.
Nemanja Matic (88' on for Martial): N/A
Brandon Williams (90' on for Fernandes): N/A
