How Albion's players rated against Manchester City...

Maty Ryan 6

Surprisingly little chance to shine with saves but was cool and precise with the ball at his feet which is crucial to this style of play.

Adam Webster 6

The toughest Premier debut imaginable and found Aguero too hot to hold. Comfortable on the ball, as he showed when fouled by Laporte as he strode forward purposefully.

Lewis Dunk 6

Lots of responsibility on the ball and usually (not quite always) passed the test. Some good defending but ultimately City were too good.

Dan Burn 6

That sure touch brought applause from City fans when he took a ball out of the sky. Some good defending and just a few forward forays.

Bernardo 6

A different interpretation down the left of defence. Had his work cut out at times but was able to get forward on occasion.

Martin Montoya 6

Some good work going forward, notably winning the ball for Trossard’s best chance, but a stray pass led to the final goal.

Dale Stephens 7

Showed he meant business with a crunching tackle on Walker. Some good work on the ball and was very alert closing down.

Davy Propper 6

Was out-smarted by David Silva as Albion got off to their awful start but came more into the game as the first half wore on.

Solly March 6

Employed further forward on the right-hand side but did not cause City much discomfort.

The Argus:

Leandro Trossard 7

Showed his tight skills and elusive running to cause a few problems but will also be remembered for two good chances which got away.

Neal Maupay 6

Not much change out of the City defence but good work to set up Albion’s best opening for Belgium Trossard.


The Argus:

Aaron Connolly: Sent on for his Premier League to get in behind City.

Glenn Murray: Introduced with Connolly in a bold double switch.

Pascal GrossDidn’t really get up to speed after being sent on.
