Here’s how Man City player rated in Istanbul...
Ederson - 8
Manuel Akanji - 6
Almost allowed Lautaro Martinez to score when failing to cover the Argentine.
Ruben Dias - 8
An absolute rock in the middle of defence, stepping out on ocassion when trying to break down Inter’s defensive banks.
Nathan Ake - 7
Solid enough, though outshone by Dias.
John Stones - 9
An absolute masterclass, capping off what has been a remarkable few months for the England international. Stepped into a new role and bossed the biggest game of his career.
Rodri - 8
Struggled somewhat in the opening stages but grew into the game and kept his composure to score the goal City have been chasing for 15 years.
Bernardo Silva - 7
Went close with a teasing effort early on and helped see the game out with his bravery in keeping the ball.
Ilkay Gundogan - 7
Another player not at his best but even that was enough to help City keep the ball moving against a compact Inter team.
Kevin De Bruyne - 5
As was the case two years ago, the Belgian’s evening was ended early by way of injury. The best chance of the first-half, however, came when De Bruyne played in Erling Haaland, who drew a good save out of Andre Onana.
Jack Grealish - 6
Like Silva, helped keep the ball and win fouls as City were seeing the game out but not as his best on the attacking front.
Erling Haaland - 6
Quite after forcing a good save out of Onana in the first-half.
Phil Foden (for De Bruyne ‘36) - 7
Movement and quick feet caused Inter plenty problems.
Kyle Walker (for Stones ‘82) - N/A
