Michel Vorm 8
Despite the scoreline, the Dutch keeper was in excellent form, without having played a game with his new team mates. Pulled off a string of excellent saves and looks comfortable on the ball.
Alan Tate 6
Was exposed on the flanks too frequently, guilty of backing off City’s players too much.
Ashley Williams 7
Some important blocks, especially in the first half, but exposed in the second as City applied the pressure.
Steven Caulker 7
An impressive first half, looked assured in the air and on the ball, linked well with Williams.
Angel Rangel 6
Struggled to cope with the threat of Dzeko and this restricted his ability to push forward.
Scott Sinclair 8
His pace caused City problems and looked Swansea’s biggest threat, but had little support in the attacking third.
Leon Britton 7
Worked tirelessly against the formidable presence of Yaya Toure, especially in the first half. Swansea’s greatest influence in midfield.
Kemy Agustien 6
Struggled to impose himself on the game in midfield.
Stephen Dobbie 6
Unable to exert his usual influence on the game. Put Joe Hart under pressure with a long-range effort in the second half.
Nathan Dyer 7
Worked hard on the wing and created some good opportunities going forward, but lack of support from Rangel limited his impact.
Danny Graham 6
Suffered from a lack of support in the first half. Was stronger holding up the ball in the second, but found chances hard to come by.
Joe Allen 7
The young midfielder provided some additional attacking prowess.
Wayne Routledge 7
Added some steel to the attack and showed good strength at times.
Leroy Lita 5
Had little time to make a significant impact.
