De Jong 9, Ferran 2: rating Barca players in Man City draw

Frenkie de Jong – 9/10

The midfielder has had an amazing game, making smart runs and clever passes. He also scored Barca’s second goal of the night.

Gavi – 8.5/10

The 18-year-old entered the pitch in the second half, created a goal out of nowhere and gave some amazing passes later.

Sergi Roberto – 8/10

The Barca veteran has surprisingly had a fine match as a right-back, supporting the attacks very well and eventually getting an assist. He looked really solid tonight – except for one episode in which he lost his man and we conceded a goal.

Franck Kessie – 8/10

The Ivorian was unstoppable in the midfield in the first half, proving once again that he deserves a starter spot in the coming matches. Sharp in front of goal, great at linking with Sergio Busquets.

Inaki Pena – 7.5/10

Barca’s second-choice goalkeeper made a really harsh mistake in the first half but recovered with plenty of glorious saves. Well done Inaki!

Jules Kounde – 5/10

The centre-back was decent on the ball but too error-prone in defence throughout the whole match.

Ferran Torres – 2/10

The Spaniard was really poor at progressing the ball and trying to sharpen the team’s attacking play. He seemed to have lacked the desire to make the difference too.
