Joe Hart 6/10: For the most part, Hart was rather untested. His only real save of note was on a long-range shot from Routledge, which the England international fell on comfortably. His distribution was solid.
Pablo Zabaleta 6/10: He was less involved, as he tended to play more defensively than Gael Clichy on the other side. Also, much of the action went through the left with Samir Nasri. Zabaleta looked decent against Routledge, who moved inside a bit.
Vincent Kompany 6/10: Kompany displayed his usual strong presence in the center, even if he was fairly uninvolved. He moved the ball well and made his share of good tackles.
Matija Nastasic 5.5/10: Nastasic was less assured than his veteran partner. He lost Michu midway through the first and was lucky that the Spaniard missed. He rode his luck again near halftime, clattering the lanky forward, but Mike Jones waved off the penalty claim.
Gael Clichy 6.5/10: Clichy was more than willing to drive forward down the left side and did good work defensively, quieting Nathan Dyer's impact. He displayed good linkup play, but his crossing left something to be desired.
