With minimal testing during the night, but prepared when needed, there was some commendable performance from the defense, showcasing focus and exactly meeting the demands of such occasions.

White continues to impress with his consistent performance, making it increasingly challenging to articulate his prowess every three days. Once again, he showcased adept defensive skills and made notable offensive contributions.

William Saliba – 6

Manchester City exhibited a varied defensive approach over the weekend, maintaining confidence for the most part. A notable highlight occurred in the second half when they skillfully evaded pressure with a dribbling maneuver.

Gabriel – 6

A brief lapse in concentration during the first half led to a misunderstanding with Zinchenko. Apart from that, he demonstrated confidence against Carlton Morris, who posed a potential challenge.

Oleksandr Zinchenko – 6

Zinchenko showcased his typical game upon his return to the side, displaying great assurance on the ball and taking the initiative to play Arsenal out from the back. Despite a couple of risky giveaways, it’s the classic risk and reward scenario that characterizes the Ukrainian’s style.
