Manchester City: Man for man marking

Joe Hart

Early save from Olic and tipped away Alaba drive but was little troubled against understrength Bayern with action at other end. 6/10

Stefan Savic

Robust Montenegrin put in crucial blocks after coming in for calf victim Micah Richards for only his sixth start for the club. Composed. 6

Vincent Kompany

The Belgian captain helped ease Savic in. Displayed usual calmness and dealt with sporadic Bayern attacks well. 7

Joleon Lescott

Headed home from Silva free-kick but effort rightly disallowed for foul on goalkeeper. Stood up well to what little the visitors offered. 6

Gaël Clichy

Held position while also providing extra attacking outlet as he pre-pares for an extended run in team after Kolarov injury. 6

Gareth Barry

Tidy and effective passing. His ball infield began the move for the opener. Forced Butt to punch away 25-yard effort. 7

Samir Nasri

Former Arsenal man began brightly and created header for Aguero. Fired wide before the interval but efforts ultimately in vain. 6

Yaya Touré

Typically imposing, dominant showing from the Ivorian, providing platform for Silva and Nasri to work at Bayern defence. Strode forward for City's second after interval. 8

David Silva

Transferred Premier League form to the European stage. Came in for heavy treatment and stayed down with ankle injury before fine run and finish for City's first. 8

Sergio Aguero

Dallied on chance shortly after Silva's goal, allowing Boateng to get back and clear. Curled wide one effort on half-time. 7

Edin Dzeko

Little joy in the air against Bayern defence but combined superbly with Silva for opener and also created Touré's second. 7

Best off the bench

De Jong (for Dzeko, 77): Brought on to reaffirm City's control of midfield.
