Grading the players: Manchester City lost to Wolves 2-1, their first defeat in the league: Player Ratings

Manchester City player ratings (4-2-3-1)

GK: Ederson – 6/10

No power to defend the two lost goals. What’s painful is that Wolves only found a chance to shoot into the box once and it was a goal. The other goal came from a teammate’s own goal.

RB: Kyle Walker – 6/10

Play aggressively in style And still maintains his style even when he received a yellow card. Always try to motivate your teammates to stay in the game team. He had an impressive shot when he lunged with his whole body to block Hwang’s shot, but he couldn’t help it.

CB: Manuel Akanji – 5/10

There is both bad and good mixed together. There were Hwang’s shot blocks in the first half and Neto’s threat-stopping shots in the second half, but they were quite disappointing when in possession. and the moment when the team lost the second goal

CB: Ruben Dias – 5/10

Waiting to shoot the ball for friends to play attacking games. But was attacked by the home offensive line many times. Until it led to an interception of his own goal. And the second one, which he should have done better.

LB: Nathan Ake – 4/10

He often performs well when dealing with opposing right wingers, but in this game, Ake secretly lost his form because of Neto’s attack. It was a ยูฟ่าเบท game that he didn’t want to take lightly.

DM: Matheus Nunes – 5/10

Was greeted by the home fans with boos as expected. After forcing the club to let him move to join the Manchester City team, he was able to cope well to a certain extent. Including offering a tray to Haaland, but unfortunately he was substituted at halftime for tactical reasons.

DM: Mateo Kovacic – 5/10

The pass was broken until it was the starting point for Neto to control the ball from his own half and shoot a ricochet off Dias into his own goal. Struggling to replace Rodri

RM: Phil Foden – 6/10

Try to create opportunities for your teammates. Keep pressing to win the ball back. But with Wolves using a low defensive plan, Foden encountered an elephant in breaking down the wall.

AM: Julian Alvarez – 6/10

Disappeared from the game in the first half But it got better in the second half. Free kicks have been one of Alvarez’s best weapons lately, and it came to fruition in this game as well.

LM: Jeremy Doku – 5/10

Looks best in the attacking panel only in the first half. With speed and chasing the home team’s defense, they created a lot of danger. But there was a problem with making the final decision as usual.

CF: Erling Haaland – 3/10

Scores should have been scored when there were no scores on either side, yet Haaland rarely played his own game. Because the home team’s defense line was stuck.


Oscar Bobb (replacing Nunes, 46′) – 6/10 –  Came in and flashed quite a bit. Created an opportunity for Haaland to score and also called a free kick that led to Alvarez’s goal.

Calvin Phillips (replacing Kovacic, 65′) – 6/10 –  brought in to calm the midfield. But in less than a minute the team lost the second goal immediately. Even though it wasn’t his fault.

Jack Grealish (in place of Ake, 80) – 6/10 –  Too little time to make an impact on the team.
