Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City – Carabao Cup Final Player Ratings

Manchester City spanked a poor Arsenal side 3-0 at Wembley today in the Carabao Cup Final to secure the club’s first piece of silverware during the Pep Guardiola era. Let’s see how the players rated …

Bravo 7

Made one important close range save early on, and excellent assist for City’s opener.

Walker 8

Bombed forward relentlessly and carried out his defensive duties diligently.

Kompany 9 ( MOTM )

Lead by example with a rock solid defensive display and scored the all important second goal.

Otamendi 7

Untroubled by Arsenal’s feeble attack.

Danilo 7

Put in a solid shift at left-back.

Fernandinho 7

City will be hopeful the injury he went off with is not too serious, as he is such an important cog in Guardiola’s winning machine.

Gündogan 8

Is starting to show why he was so highly rated in the Bundesliga, excellent work-rate and distribution.

De Bruyne 8

Not at his normal brilliant best, but still better than most.

Silva 8

Superb finish for his goal, and as always he linked City’s play together effortlessly.

Sané 8

A constant threat with the ball at his feet.

Agüero 8

Looked sharp form the first whistle and took his goal superbly.

Substitutes

Bernardo Silva 7

Neat and tidy in possession in the closing stages.

Jesus 7

Looked bright after his introduction, although he was not able to sniff out any chances.

Foden N/A

No impact.

Arsenal

Ospina 4

Nervy from start to finish, poor distribution and just never looks to be in command of his defence.

Chambers 4

Just not good enough for a top-six club.

Mustafi 4

Embarrassingly nudged off the ball for Aguero’s opener.

Koscielny 5

Is nowhere near the solid defender he was a couple of season’s ago.

Bellerín 5

Worked hard, but skint by Sane a few times.

Ramsey 5

Started brightly but faded as the game went on.

Xhaka 2

Terrible. A defensive midfielder who lacks defensive awareness.

Monreal 4

Had to be withdrawn in first-half after injuring himself doing a ridiculous dive in the penalty area.

Özil 3

Didn’t show up when his team needed him.

Wilshere 5

Did little to suggest Roy Keane was wrong with his scathing midweek criticism.

Aubameyang 4

Poor. Pushed off the ball too easily when through in first-half, and generally just didn’t look too interested.

Substitutes 

Kolasinac 6

Put in a solid enough shift after his introduction.

Welbeck 5

Worked hard but to no avail.

Iwobi 4

Seems to be regressing badly over the last couple of months.
