Algeria international Riyad Mahrez had the highest rating as Premier League holders Manchester City came from behind to beat French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) 2-1 at home in their latest Champions League clash to seal top spot in Group A. PSG needed to win to take control of the group, but they could not hold on to the lead established at the start of the second half as the Citizens scored twice to win the game and also win their group.
According to the rating from The 4thOfficial, Algeria national team winger Mahrez was given an eight (8) as he was a thorn in the flesh of the PSG defenders. Young PSG left-back Nuno Mendes struggled to cope with the Algeria international who was involved in the two Manchester City goals from the right side of their attack.
Mahrez had the highest score amongst Manchester City players. Portugal international Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Joao Cancelo all had the score of 7.5 each, while Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus was the only change for manager Pep Guardiola during the game. Jesus came off the bench for Ukrainian utility player Oleksandr Zinchenko and he was given a score of 7 alongside German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.
Rodri Hernandez and Kyle Walker were given 6.5 apiece, while the quartet of John Stones, Ruben Dias, Ukrainian national team star Zinchenko and EdersonMoraes got a score of 6.
Manchester City dominated the game with PSG and they were good value for the win. As a matter of fact, the Citizens could have won by more goals if they took their chances in front of goal. They did well to bounce back after PSG had scored the opening goal of the game five minutes into the second half through KylianMbappe. Sterling equalised for Manchester City thirteen (13) minutes later off the assist from substitute Gabriel Jesus who then scored the winning goal fourteen (14) minutes from the end.
