Player Ratings: Manchester City

Last updated : 18 December 2005 By Brian Cartlidge

Vaesen - A mixed bag!! Some good saves but at fault for the second and third goals. Unluckily sent off.

Tebily - Awful again.

- Willing but looked a little out of his depth.

Cunningham - Showed up by a lack of pace.

Upson - Terrible again. I think it was in the 93rd minute when he won his first header!

Johnson - Determined as always.

Clemence - Tried hard but was over-run.

Butt - Ditto Clemence.

Clapham - Not the answer at left midfield - anonymous.

Dunn - Unbelievably withdrawn after just 35 minutes??

Pandiani - Ran his socks off - one of only two or three who did.


Pennant (for Dunn, 35) - Lively but well shackled.

(for Tebily, 23) - One header apart, that he should have scored with, never a threat and clearly not match fit.

Jarosik (for Pandiani 73) - Well taken goal.

Subs not used: Maik Taylor, Heskey (even though he wasn't there)!!
