Had nothing to do for the entire contest, a quiet afternoon for the England man.
Little to do from a defensive standpoint, looked to get forward whenever possible and was a threat from set-pieces.
Rarely troubled defensively, handled the physical threat of Pogrebnyak well.
A decent debut from the Dutchman, never troubled defensively and appeared dangerous on the attack.
An energetic display from the full-back, who endeavoured to create chances at every opportunity.
Was well shackled by Reading and was unable to deliver to the standard expected of him.
Dictated the play well in midfield but was never able to create anything of note.
An efficient display from the midfielder, who always ensured that his side retained possession well, and added the killer touch with his late header.
A disappointing display from the Ivorian, who had little impact on the game.
Nearly netted from the best chance of the game early in the first half and looked to be City's most likely goalscorer until being substituted.
Linked up well with Tevez and always posed the Reading defence a myriad of problems.
An excellent display from the Reading keeper, who produced some fine saves to keep City at bay until Barry's late winner.
Struggled to deal with Pablo Zabaleta, but offered something of a threat in an attacking sense.
Defended heroically and almost gave the Royals the lead early in the second half.
A fine defensive performance from the former Watford man, who played well under intense pressure from the home side.
The better of the two Reading full-backs, Gunter nullified much of the threat down the left flank in what was an assured performance.
The midfielder produced a faultless display before eventually being substituted.
Tireless, did his level best to deny David Silva time and space and succeeded for much of the contest.
Workmanlike display, Tabb harried the City midfield constantly and deserves high praise for his display.
Reading's main outlet going forward, the winger was always a threat on the counter.
Had little chance to create anything going forward and was reduced to defensive duties, which he performed well.
Deprived of service for much of the game but never gave up and was a nuisance throughout.
