Manchester City beat Chelsea on pens: Carabao Cup final player ratings

Chelsea

Kepa Arrizabalaga: 4 Enraged Maurizio Sarri with disrespectful refusal to become replaced before conceding four of City’s five penalties.

Cesar Azpilicueta: 7 The Spaniard was excellent. Forced Sterling to transfer to the correct flank to uncover more joy.

David Luiz: 6 An innovator in central defence, clearing a succession of crosses. Booked for just a cynical foul.

Antonio Rdiger: 7 A rugged display with the German, although he was booked for that crude tackle.

Emerson Palmieri: 7 Preferred to Marcos Alonso, he kept the left flank secure. Limited the possiblility to attack.

Jorginho: 6 Fortunate to flee a red card after elbow on Agero. Showed rare battle in their deep role.

N’Golo Kant: 7 At his energetic better off the ball. Unfortunate never to score from the loved one.

Ross Barkley: 5 Helped maintain shape in midfield and threatened having a bending effort within the wife or husband.

Pedro: 5 Buzzed encouragingly whilst has a probability to dribble but his end-product was disappointing.

Eden Hazard: 7 Grew into his false No 9 role. Wonderful dribble almost designed a goal for Kant.

Willian: 6 There was no faulting the Brazilian’s workrate. He protected Emerson. Lacked options in possession.

Manchester City

Ederson: 7 The Brazilian had nothing to do through to the penalty shootout. Saved well from Jorginho.

Kyle Walker: 6 Pressed high to force Chelsea back, but his crosses rarely found their target. Sound defensively.

Nicols Otamendi: 5 Dozed off and almost scored a comical own-goal. Looked exposed when Hazard ran at him.

Aymeric Laporte: 4 Passed sloppily and let in Hazard and Kante for chances before being replaced by Vincent Kompany.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: 6 Stopped Kant breaking clear after Laporte’s slip but struggled to offer an attacking threat.

Fernandinho: 6 Careless control generated the Brazilian receiving a booking for fouling Barkley. Stopped injured.

Bernardo Silva: 6 Hinted at menace while he cut up on his left foot, nonetheless the killer final pass eluded him.

Kevin De Bruyne: 5 Booting two passes out for any throw summed up City’s frustration. Deserved to become substituted.

David Silva: 5 The Spaniard has gone off of the boil in recent weeks. Substituted after another quiet game.

Raheem Sterling: 7 Brilliant late dribble caused panic and nailed the winning penalty in emphatic style.

Sergio Agero: 6 Goal disallowed and almost scored an extra-time winner, but selfishly ignored Sterling afterwards.

Subs Vincent Kompany (for Laporte, h-t) 6; Ilkay Gndogan (for David Silva, 79) 6; Leroy San (for Kevin De Bruyne, 86) 6; (Danilo for Fernandinho, 91) 6.
