Man City player ratings gallery so far this season - one scores 9/10, two earn 8/10 but one 4/10 given

We’ve handed every Manchester City player a score out of 10 for their performances in the opening stages of 2022/23.

Manchester City have enjoyed an impressive start to the 2022/23 season, which is currently on pause due to the World Cup in Qatar.

The Blues have progressed to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup and City also topped their Champions League group at something of a canter. The only slight blip for Pep Guardiola’s men is their league position.

The champions have dropped points on four occasions in their opening 14 league matches this term (against Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Brentford) and currently trail leaders Arsenal by five points.

It leaves City with work to do when they return after the World Cup break, although they do face Arsenal twice in the second part of the season and a title charge is still very much in their own hands.

There have been some fantastic performances from City in the first half of the season, including big wins against Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest, Copenhagen and Southampton, with Guardiola’s players maintaining their usually impeccably high standards.

With that in mind, we’ve had a look back at the first section of the campaign and rated every player’s performances so far. We’ve included every first-team star who has featured on more than five occasions for City this season, however, this does exclude Kalvin Phillips who has struggled with a long-term shoulder problem.

Here’s how we rated the players…
