Goals from Toure, Nasri and Navas secure the League Cup for City…
Manchester City player ratings:
- 30 Costel Pantilimon – 6
Wasn’t at fault for Fabio Borini’s Sunderland opener, and made a good save from Ki in the second half when the score was still 1-0.
- 05 Pablo Zabaleta – 6
Typically barnstorming performance from the Argentine, who also managed to keep Adam Johnson quiet.
- 13 Alexsandr Kolarov – 5
Kolarov gave the ball away on regular occasions from left-back, and struggled to implement himself on the game.
- 04 Vincent Kompany – 6
At fault for Sunderland’s goal, when he let Borini free down the right. Elsewhere though he looked quite shaky, although made a brilliant last-ditch tackle to deny Borini a second.
- 26 Martin Demichelis – 6
Demichelis is often criticised, but the Argentine didn’t too much wrong this afternoon, carrying the ball out from defence well.
