Norwich City

Angus Gunn (5.2/10): Gunn was barraged with shots on target. Though he managed to save some, he let 4 goals in.

Max Aarons (6.3/10): Aarons had a decent game apart from clearance bunder which led to Sterling’s goal.

Grant Hanley (6.5/10): Hanley had a header hit the post from a corner which would have given Norwich the lead. He put his body on the line and defended well.

Ben Gibson (5.5/10): Gibson committed a foul which resulted in a penalty for Manchester.

Brandon Williams (5.7/10): The left-back had a game to forget as Mahrez was all over him.

Pierre Lees-Melou (6.1/10): Lees-Melou went relatively unnoticed in the match and was subbed off in the 63rd minute.

Billy Gilmour (7/10): The midfielder was accurate in passing and contributed with defensive duties as well.

Kenny McLean (6.1/10): McLean did not have a lot of possession and could not establish his presence in the match.

Joshua Sargent (6/10): The right-wing looked ineffective throughout the match and was eventually subbed off.

Teemu Pukki (5.8/10): Pukki had very little of the ball and just one shot on target.

Milot Rashica (6.9/10): Rashica was one of Norwich’s better players. He made a good run forcing a yellow card foul from Dias.

Kieran Dowell (NA)

Manchester City

Ederson (6.8/10): Ederson had nothing much to do as there were hardly any good shots on target.

Kyle Walker (8.2/10): The right-back was flamboyant on the flank and delivered an assist to Sterling. He did not get dribbled past and defended extremely well.

Ruben Dias (7.8/10): Apart from the yellow card challenge in the first half, Dias was positionally good and defensively great. He assisted Sterling’s second goal from a corner.

Nathan Ake (7.9/10): Replacing Laporte, Ake had an exceptional game at the back. He marked the attackers well and kept a well-deserved clean sheet.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (7.1/10): Like Walker, Zinchenko lobbed many balls into the box from the left flank.

Ilkay Gundogan (7.8/10): Gundogan had a really good game. His passing was accurate and crisp, always finding the intended player.

Fernandinho (7.3/10): Man City skipper orchestrated the midfield and distributed the ball perfectly. He was defensively good as well.

Bernardo Silva (7.5/10): Silva was at his usual best, putting crosses into the box and being actively involved in the attacks.

Riyad Mahrez (7.7/10): Mahrez looked potent on the right flank, cutting in to unleash his strong left foot.

Phil Foden (8/10): Foden scored Manchester’s 2nd goal using good skills and placement into the net which just about went in.

Raheem Sterling (9.3/10):  Sterling scored a hat trick and won the man of the match award. The first goal was an exceptional curler into the far corner, the second was a simple tap in the header and the third was a penalty rebound converted.

Substitutes:
