Arsenal

Petr Cech: 6 – Could he have been more alert for the goals? Perhaps, but to blame him would be to miss the point as this once world-class keeper edges into the autumn of a fine career

Hector Bellerin: 6 – Poor positioning and a lack of inspiration on a bitterly cold night. But then he wasn’t the only one.

Laurent Koscienly: 6 – The captain has suffered a poor few days as he battled against a lively forward line.

Shkodran Mustafi: 5 – After his error in the final at Wembley was it a surprise to see him in the starting line-up against City? No, because the team have become complacent and expect to play because they have stopped listening to – and believing in – their boss. Another poor display.

Sead Kolasinac: 5.5 – Worrying to see how he has regressed since his excellent displays at the start of the season. Whose fault is that? Dips are one thing but it is concerning how many players have lost confidence under Wenger.

Granit Xhaka: 5 – The editor of irreverent Arsenal Fanzine Up The Arse posted on Twitter (with 1980s diva Chaka Khan very much in mind) Xhaka can’t. Xhaka can’t. I feel for you.

Aaron Ramsey: 5 – Struggled at Wembley. Struggled tonight the Emirates despite firing off a powerful first half shot that tested Ederson

Mesut Ozil: 4 – Was he even playing?

Henrik Mkhitaryan: 4 – Back to his Manchester United form. Unfortunately it was that which prompted Jose Mourinho to let him go.

Danny Welbeck: 4 – Largely anonymous. Again

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: 4 – A real shame he couldn’t grab his first Gunners goal after his penalty miss. He must be wondering what he has let himself in for.

Manchester City:

Ederson: 8 – Excellent penalty from an excellent keeper.

Kyle Walker: 7.5 – Marshalled the Arsenal forwards effectively as the former Spurs man took satisfaction from beating the Gunners twice in a week.

Danilo: 7.5 – Competent. But then that’s all he needed to be after an exceptional performance at Wembley.

Vincent Kompany: 8 - Captain. Leader. Legend. Again.

Nicolas Otamendi: 7 – Gave away the penalty but wasn’t punished.

Ilkay Gundogan: 7 – Solid

Kevin De Bruyne: 7 – World class. Even if he didn’t need to show it against Arsenal. For the second time this week.

David Silva: 8 – Wonderful to see this left-footed talent. Deserved his goal.

Bernardo: 7.5 – Early goal knocked the gumption out of Arsenal

Leroy Sane: 8.5 – Superb first half performance.

Sergio Aguero: 8 – Didn’t grab his 200th goal for City but can be happy with his performance including an assist for Silva.
