Manchester City: Man for man marking
Wednesday 23 November 2011
Should have done better with both goals. Got a strong hand to the second, but not good enough to keep it out. 6/10
Picked for his defensive qualities, meaning he will be disappointed not to have stopped cross for Cavani's second. Rarely ventured forward. 6
Flustered by the pace and movement around him. Gave the strikers too much space to work in, which cost his side. 6
The calmest of City's defence throughout, while others lost their heads. Stayed strong when the opposition ran at him. 7
Eager to get forward, but frequently found himself out of position as Napoli played on the break. His delivery lacks consistency. 5
Nigel de Jong
In the team to shield the centre-backs, but did not get close enough to Hamsik, allowing him easy link-ups with his strikers. 5
Let Cavani run across him for the goal. Offered good protection for the defence, but the weighting of his forward passes was poor. 6
Always a willing runner while his midfield partners sat back. Popped up across the pitch to add thrust to attacking moves. 7
Struggled to get into the game when out on the right, but was more influential when he moved inside. Passing not at its clinical best. 6
Put himself in the perfect position for an easy tap-in. Repeatedly wanted to do too much when he had better options around him. 6
His touch and decision-making were off the pace from the start. Didn't receive the delivery he thrives on, with chances at a premium. 4
Best off the bench
Sergio Aguero Added some impetus, but not enough for City. 4
