Dinamo Zagreb vs Man City

Claudio Bravo Olmo's brilliant volley gave the keeper no chance, but he came up with one showy, flying grab and had little else to do. Joao Cancelo Awful start, giving the ball away freely, but he got his act together and played a part in a decent team display. Eric Garcia His positioning and anticipation saved the City defence plenty of pain - old head on young shoulders. Nicolas Otamendi Should have attacked the cross for Olmo's goal but made amends with some stern defending. Benjamin Mendy Abysmal in the first half, but recovered to play a big part in Jesus's second and third goals - more like his old self.

Man City player ratings: Gabriel Jesus shines and Phil Foden superb vs Dinamo Zagreb

Persistently stepped in to thwart Dinamo attacks at source, and gave a passing masterclass. Ilkay Gundogan So neat and useful when City are on the front foot, or when seeking to kill a game, as they did here. Phil Foden His bright burst brought the first goal, he had a big part in the second and a vital pass in the third. Took his goal well. Superb. Riyad Mahrez His instant control of long aerial balls ensured he was a constant threat, even if his involvement was limited. Gabriel Jesus A stock far-post header, a lovely second and a tap-in for a much-needed hat-trick - he now has five in three games. Bernardo Silva Still fighting to find his best, but he never shirks and still comes up with occasional moments of quality. Subs Aleks Zinchenko (for Jesus 66) Raheem Sterling (for Rodri 73) Harwood-Bellis (for Otamendi 81) Not used: Carson, Walker, Angelino, De Bruyne.
