2. John Stones

John Stones has been an invaluable addition to Man-City’s defence this season, serving as one of the standout centre-backs in Europe with great versatility throughout this campaign. The England international has proven his worth throughout this campaign.
3. Kevin De Bruyne
De Bruyne achieved remarkable success during his first season with City, climbing to the top of the assist charts and being named Player of the Year. Additionally, he played an integral role in their Premier League title win of 2016/17 and remains their leading scorer to this day.

4. Ilkay Gundogan
Gundogan began and ended City’s midfield with skill, using his impressive off-ball techniques to help his teammates create space in the attacking third. This role has been one that he has consistently played throughout this season in the Premier League.
Jack Grealish set up Jack Grealish for his goal with a beautiful floated cross and was also part of the buildup to Erling Haaland’s game-winner late on. Additionally, he had an opportunity to score himself in the 14th minute but saw it saved by Yann Sommer.
5. Jack Grealish
Jack Grealish has been one of the best players in England for some time now. His aggression and threat on the ball make him a nightmare for opponents.
He’s an absolute terror on the ball, able to draw other defenders in and pick them off with his overlapping runs. He’s the type of player who makes teams work hard for a goal – and it showed on this night!
6. Bernardo Silva
Bernardo Silva has expressed doubt over his future at Manchester City, saying he will discuss it at the end of the season. A key player in their successful Premier League and Champions League treble, the Portugal international is under contract at Etihad Stadium until 2025.
Pep Guardiola’s right-back was the least press resistant of his centre backs, yet still managed to exert relentless pressure on Thomas Tuchel’s defenders, setting up the decisive third goal for City.
On Tuesday night, Pep Guardiola’s City side took a commanding lead against Bayern Munich with an impressive performance at the Etihad. Rodri’s 25-yard strike and goals from Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland put Pep’s men firmly in control.

8. Nathan Ake
Dayot Upamecano will remember this night as Pep Guardiola’s side ran away 3-0 winners against six-time European champions Barcelona, led by an incredible block by Ruben Dias to deny Jamal Mussala in the first half.
City were in control throughout, with headed clearances and blocks keeping City ahead. A goal from Rodri made the difference as he established himself as a key figure in midfield with his precision passing setting up Erling Haaland for another goal.
9. Ilkay Gundogan
Gundogan was born in Gelsenkirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia to Turkish parents. His paternal grandfather immigrated from Balikesir, Turkey to the Ruhr region of Germany to work as a miner; shortly thereafter his parents followed suit and made the same journey.
Gundogan has quickly ascended to the top of Pep Guardiola’s midfield and been an integral part of City’s dominant performances this season. He plays an essential role in City’s trophy quest as well as representing Germany at the 2018 World Cup.
Rodri is an important element in City’s 4-3-3 formation. He’s renowned for his ability to ward off press by staying in possession of the ball.
He also has the knack of getting to the ball in good position, making it easier for others to gain possession. It is this ability that has earned him Pep Guardiola’s trust.
