Stoke 0-1 City – Saturday 26 January 2013 | Britannia Stadium
Here are my player ratings for the win at Stoke in the FA Cup.
Pantilimon 6 – Didn’t have much to do but dealt with most things comfortably.
Zabaleta 9 – Player of the Season keeps getting better. What a goal.
Kompany 7 – Had to go off injured but deal with Kenwyne Jones’ threat well before departure. Hope his injury is nothing serious.
Lescott 8 – Excellent. Determination to win headers was great. Hasn’t suffered from lack of playing time. Top player.
Koloarov 5 – What does he do other than look uncomfortable?
Milner 6 – In the context of his recent form, this was a poor game. No end product. Great workrate as always, though.
Garcia 7 – One of his better games.
Barry 6 – Quiet by his standards but still very useful in the middle of the park.
Silva 8 – Great quality on the ball, as always. Maybe could have followed up his recent goals with one here.
Tevez 7 – Some good running caused them a few problems. Needs a goal.
Dzeko 6 – Didn’t offer much.
Clichy 7 – (for Kompany, 40)
Aguero 7 (for Kolarov, 62)
Rodwell 6 (for Tevez 86)
