City dominated but there were a few standout performers for Tottenham, as Aymeric Laporte’s late header was enough to seal a fourth-straight League Cup victory for Pep Guardiola.

Here are the Manchester City - Tottenham player ratings in full, as we dish out the marks out of 10.

Manchester City

Zack Steffen: 6 - Had one save to make early in the second half, and that was it. The USMNT star has his first trophy!

Kyle Walker: 7 - Solid defensively and always an outlet down the right.

Ruben Dias: 7 - Kept Harry Kane quiet and kept City tight at the back.

Aymeric Laporte: 7 - Scored the winning goal, but got away with a rash foul early on and then picked up a yellow. Perhaps lucky to be on the pitch, but made it count.

Joao Cancelo: 7 - Got forward from left back on many occasions, and always a threat.

Fernandinho: 7 - Showed all of his experience to dominate midfield.

Kevin de Bruyne: 8 - Create so many chances for his team and came close to scoring. Lovely delivery on the winner. Magic.

Ilkay Gundogan: 7 - Silky on the ball and kept things ticking over.

Phil Foden: 8 - Caused so many issues and he just glides over the pitch. A joy to watch.

Raheem Sterling: 7 - Brilliant runs from the left in the first half. Back towards his best.

Riyad Mahrez: 8 - Lovely runs inside and curled a few shots just off target. A constant threat.

Rodri (84' on for Fernandinho): N/A
Bernardo Silva (87' on for De Bruyne): N/A


Hugo Lloris: 8 - Made so many important saves. Fantastic display and led by example.

Serge Aurier: 6 - Gave away the free kick which led to the goal. Aside from that, played well.

Toby Alderweireld: 8 - Heroic. Great blocks, including one in the first half to deflect a shot onto the post, and did his best to hold it together for Spurs.

Eric Dier: 6 - Solid enough defensively and in the air, but struggled on the ball

Sergio Reguilon: 5 - Poor display, especially in first half. Booked and run ragged by Mahrez. Quality on ball was poor.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: 6 - Had a great chance to score but decided to pass it instead.

Harry Winks: 6 - Kept things ticking over nicely in midfield and they needed him to keep the ball.

Lucas Moura: 7 - Really lively off the right with his surging runs. Surprised to see him subbed off.

Giovani Lo Celso: 5 - Quiet display. One shot early in the second which forced a save and that was it.

Heung-min Son: 4 - Poor. Gave the ball away so many times. Hardly featured and was in tears at the final whistle.

Harry Kane: 6 - Hardly had a kick in the first half. Very good in the second half as he dropped deeper.

Gareth Bale (67' on for Moura): 5 - Had a few chances to get on the ball, but didn’t have an impact.
Moussa Sissoko (67' on for Lo Celso): 4 - Lost Laporte on the winning goal as he switched off defensively.
Steven Bergwijn (90' on for Aurier): N/A
