Ruben Dias has City’s best moment but headed over from close range as they chased an equaliser.
✔️ Hakim Ziyech : 7.2
The former Ajax man admitted in the media that he has found it tough to settle at Chelsea because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but did his status no harm at all with the winning goal in this game.
It arrived because he supported Timo Werner – another strong performer – so impressively. Indeed, he was left with a simple tap in for what will be one of the easiest but most memorable goals of his career.
This could be the day that his Chelsea career really got going.
❌ Kevin De Bruyne: 5.6
The Belgium star was not the only one to suffer; Feran Torres was surprisingly feeble, too.
⭐ Thiago Silva: 7.7
Another masterclass from the veteran central defender, who continues to be a rock at the heart of the Chelsea defence.
Nothing got in behind the Chelsea rearguard and what efforts that City typically mustered came from range. Much of this was thanks to Thiago Silva, who marshalled the defence expertly and made a crucial challenge on Gabriel Jesus with under 10 minutes to play.
Went off with a back injury in the closing stages.
