Man City’s best and worst players in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool

Manchester City were able to secure a vital point at Anfield on Sunday, drawing 1-1 with an injury-riddled Liverpool side in the Premier League.

The draw means that City go into the final ten games of the 2023/24 Premier League season just one point adrift of Liverpool and table-toppers Arsenal, as Pep Guardiola’s side remain firmly in contention to repeat the remarkable treble they won last year.

John Stones’ first half goal at Anfield was ultimately cancelled out by an Alexis Mac Allister penalty, however considering the how the second half of the game went – it was dominated by Liverpool – City will perhaps be the happier of the two teams after Sunday’s thrilling clash.

Here’s Man City’s best and worst players from the 1-1 draw with Liverpool, according to 90min’s esteemed player ratings.

John Stones: 8/10

The goalscorer and City’s all-round best player on the day, John Stones put in a genuinely world class showing at Anfield.

Stones’ opened the scoring on the day, reacting well to a near-post corner delivery from Kevin De Bruyne to sweep the ball past Caoimhin Kelleher and into the back of the net.

After that goal the England international continued to excel – winning 100% of his duels in the middle of the park.

Ederson: 4/10

Big games are ultimately decided by big moments, and Ederson’s rash challenge on Darwin Nunez in the box ultimately cost Manchester City their 1-0 lead on Sunday.

To make his silly foul even worse, he injured himself while chopping Nunez to the floor, meaning Pep Guardiola had to take his number one off shortly after the Reds drew level.

Not ideal, to say the least.

Dishonourable mention

Bernardo Silva: 4/10

Bernardo Silva has put in some utterly outstanding performance against Liverpool in the past – his showing on Sunday was not one of these performance.

The Portugal international looked a bit lost throughout the 90 minutes, creating just 0.02 xG worth of chances for his side on the day.
