Manchester City 6-1 Newcastle United: Aguero gets FULL marks in player ratings

Manuel Pellegrini’s men produced one of the best performance of the Premier League so far this season last night at the Etihad when they took on a Newcastle side that was not low on confidence. They started the game poorly and conceded within 20 minutes but came back strongly and scored 6 past Krul and took all three points from the game.

Here are the player ratings for this game

Manchester City:

Joe Hart (3.5): Hart started the game well denying Mitrovic after which City started dominating the game. A good performance from the England shot-stopper.

Pablo Zabaleta (3): Played really well in the second half as he took every chance to go forward. But was lethargic to start with.

Nicolas Otamendi (2.5): Was found wanting whenever he was troubled in the first half. Had little to do when City were enjoying a goal fest.

Eliaquim Mangala (2.5): Shaky at the back when Newcastle were on the attack. Slowly made his presence felt as City dominated the game.

Aleksandar Kolarov (3.5): Was extra-ordinary down the flank as he put in cross after cross to trouble the Newcastle defense.

Fernandinho (3): Did well to hold back and break play when needed. Little to do in the second half.

Fernando (2.5): Should have done a lot better to provide cover for the back four when Newcastle were on the attack.

David Silva (4): The little Spaniard had a great day as he found space too often and never disappointed his players with the final ball.

Raheem Sterling (2.5): Picked up a niggle in the first half and was subbed. Failed to impress in the short time he played.

Kevin De Bruyne (4): Another assured performance from the summer signing as he hardly put a foot wrong. Picked up his 4th goal of the season.

Sergio Aguero (5): The Argentine revived City with 4 goals in 13 minutes. He was smart, slick and skill-full and had one of the best days in a Manchester City shirt. Obviously the man of the match on the day.

SUBS:

Jesus Navas (4)

Wilfried Bony (3)

Kelechi Iheanacho (3)

Newcastle United:

Tim Krul (1.5): Made some important saves to start off with but was a mere spectator as City seemed to score for fun.

Kevin Mbabu (2.5): A good first half in the attacking third but often found wanting at the back especially in the second half.

Daryl Janmaat (2.5): Made some important blocks in the first half but was not at his best when City were at their marauding best.

Fabricio Coloccini (2.5): Made clearance after clearance when City were on the attack but just did not do enough to stop them from scoring.

Chancel Mbemba (2.5): Started the game brightly on the flank but slowly fell away after the break.

Yoan Gouffran (3): Showed his pace in the first half when city were troubled. Failed to make any impact in the second half.

Vurnon Anita (2): Could have easily been sent off for a rash tackle in the first half. Hardly contributed to the Newcastle set-up.

Moussa Sissoko (2.5): Was not to bee seen when City were on the attack in the second half but dominated the game when Newcastle were on the attack.

Georginio Wijnaldum (2.5): Tried hard to get Newcastle on the front foot but failed to assert his dominance over the game.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (3): Looked dangerous at times when the away team were on the attack. Tried his best to keep Newcastle away from harm’s reach.

Ayoze Perez (3): Started the game swiftly and showed good feet in the first half. A very ordinary second half as he cut a lone figure up front.

SUBS:

Jamaal Lascelles (2)

Florian Thauvin (2.5)

Cheick Tiote (2)
