Man City player ratings vs West Ham as Doku and Silva shine – Simon Bajkowski

Walker: His attacking has improved this season with a whole flank to go at and his pace came in handy at the back as well. 7

Akanji: Lurking with a guilty look on his face after Ward-Prowse nodded home in acres of space, but very tidy otherwise. 6

Dias: Close to scoring early on although bailed out by Ederson later on when caught out by Antonio. 7

Gvardiol: Lots to like going forward in possession but his positioning was badly exposed by Bowen and Coufal. 7

Rodri: Ran the game well, nipping in to steal possession back and stop West Ham from gaining control of the game. 7

Silva: Rodri&aposs partner in crime to break up West Ham attacks and played a blinder from the wing in the second half. 9

Alvarez: One fortunate assist and one excellent assist. Struggled to stay involved but won the battle. 8

Foden: Linked up well with Haaland and Alvarez, playing centrally and out wide, but was Guardiola&aposs first change. 7

Doku: No sign of the nerves that were on show against Fulham, beating Coufal again and again and getting City back into the game. 8

Haaland: Could have had a hat-trick and probably should have had two, but was a handful for the defence all game and will score those next time. 7
