Fairly solid in the CSKA goal, he could do nothing about either goal and produced a couple of decent saves.
Was, quite strangely, brought off for his twin brother just minutes into the game, despite appearing to carry no injury.
A fairly solid performance, though he did struggle to deal with the ingenuity of Aguero and Silva at times.
Solid down the left and afforded Navas very little, particularly in the first half.
Was caught ball-watching for Aguero's second as he unnecessarily drifted away from his man. Didn't make too many other mistakes but his main contribution was a telling one.
The Japanese midfielder has an obligation to create in this CSKA side but he disappointed tonight. He showed flashes of quality but didn't really have much of an effect on the game, that header for the opening goal aside.
The winger proved fairly ineffectual, not really causing City too many problems and was duly brought off near the start of the second half.
Grabbed the first goal with a smart run and an equally smart finish and proved lively for the majority of the game, causing Kolarov a few problems down the right wing.
Impressed in patches with a combative midfield performance but ended up denying his side a goal with his high foot on Toure just prior to Musa's strike.
Caused City some problems, particularly in the second half, with some driving runs from deep. Impressed intermittently but would have wanted to do it more often.
Was constantly lively but will be disappointed that he couldn't work himself more shooting opportunities. Still, he provided CSKA with an outlet and can be fairly pleased with his evening's work.
The England international has been under fire lately but he could do nothing about the first goal and saved brilliantly to deny Honda in the final minute.
Was occasionally suspect defensively but provided City with an outlet down the left, crossing well on several occasions. A typically mixed game for the Serb.
Should have done much better tracking Tosic for the first goal but did, for the most part, look more comfortable than his defensive partner and made some decent interventions. Still, that first goal will rankle.
Was, as usual, typically calm and composed in the back, a constant cool head in an occasionally frenzied City back line.
Was his typical powerful self and impressed in patches but was slightly quieter than usual, not controlling the midfield as easily as he sometimes does.
Had a hand in both of the first half goals and was generally City's main source of creativity throughout. Provided some lovely touches and passes before being replaced by Samir Nasri.
Found himself on the peripheries of the game in the first half but came into it more in the second, providing Dzeko with a golden opportunity courtesy of a lovely cross.
Was characteristically industrious in the middle of the park and provided the defence with a useful shield. Might be looking to contribute more offensively in future games.
Beaten all too easily in the air by Honda for the first goal and looked typically uncomfortable in that center back spot that is looking more troublesome for City as each game without Kompany passes.
Wasn't particularly involved for most of the first half, but he grabbed the two goals that gave City control of the game. Where would the Citizens be without him?
Provided a quite lovely assist for the second Aguero goal and linked up fairly well with the Argentine. Tired in the second half though and was duly replaced by Dzeko.
Came on for his twin brother and struggled to cope with the dual threat of Negredo and Aguero, as many might.
Came on early in the second half and definitely sparked things for the home side; he was constantly dangerous and can deem himself unlucky to have his spectacular goal ruled out.
Was only on the pitch for five minutes but found himself caught out of position for Honda's final chance.
Came on in the latter stages and had little effect on proceedings.
Missed two golden chances to kill the game for City as the game reached its conclusion - his side could so easily have regretted those missed.
