Ortega: Put pressure on City with his kicking, but he did a good job of stopping Mitoma from scoring in the second half. Six
Walker: Although Mitoma was undoubtedly the ideal person for the task, it was difficult to keep him silent. Six
Stones: That’s still respectable, but a far way from his finest. gave the crew a calmness that had been lacking. 7.
Akanji: Brighton’s finest opportunity was when he played Gross onside and was booked, which made him more cautious. Although the second yellow was a soft call, he had no defence. 4.
Gvardiol: Developed those alliances with the attack by keeping his side neat and pushing up when he could. 7.
Rodri: Despite receiving another dumb yellow card, his ability to make decisions kept City calm.
