Huddersfield 1-2 Manchester City – Player Ratings

Manchester City continued their impressive run of form in the Premier League with a hard-fought win over a stubborn and resolute Huddersfield side at the John Smith’s Stadium this afternoon. Let’s see how the players rated …

Lössl 7

Made some decent saves and had no chance with either goal.

Smith 7

Had his work cut out up against the pace of Sane, but stuck to his task well.

Jorgensen 7

The big Dane put in a massive defensive shift for the Terriers.

Schindler 8

Another hugely impressive defensive display by the talented German.

Malone 6

Brought down Sterling for the penalty, gave everything for the cause however.

Hogg 7

Was chasing shadows for most of the game, but got through a mountain of work in the centre of the park.

Ince 6

On the few occasions he did find himself in space didn’t quite pick the right option. Excellent delivery for goal though.

Williams 7

Worked his socks off, but like his fellow midfielders he faced a thankless task at times against the likes of Silva and De Bruyne.

Mooy 7

Put in a solid shift even if he wasn’t able to dictate the play as he normally does and went close with a superb free-kick at the death.

Van La Parra 6

Covered a huge amount of distance up and down the left flank. Sent off for some shenanigans with Sane after the final whistle.

Depoitre 8

Was left massively isolated at times, but fought manfully for anything that came his way.


Löwe 7Slotted in well for a tiring Malone at left-back.

Quaner 7

Caused Delph some problems down the right after his introduction

Mounie N/A

Man City

Ederson 7

No chance with goal and excellent distribution.

Walker 8

Has taken his game to the next level since his move north.

Kompany 7

Solid. It’s crucial he stays fit while John Stones is out injured.

Otamendi 6

Unlucky with own goal, but his passing was a little erratic at times.

Delph 6

Made a couple of decisions in first-half that showed you he is not a natural left-back.

De Bruyne 7

Not as his usual brilliant best. Still better than most however.

Fernandinho 8

City’s unsung hero. Passed the ball well throughout.

Silva 8

Another masterclass in how to find space and pick the right pass.

Sterling 9 ( MOTM )

Superb. His movement caused the home side no end of problems. Won the penalty and scored the winner.

Aguero 7

Slotted his penalty away nicely, but apart from that found it difficult to find space against Huddersfield’s well marshalled defence.

Sane  7

His pace and trickery were a constant menace down the left.


Jesus N/ANo Impact.

Mangala N/ANo Impact.

Gundogan N/ANo Impact.
