Helpless on the goal but made a brilliant early save from Ramires.
Was left exposed as Chelsea consistently picked up possession behind the City midfield and made a few untidy challenges.
Given a thorough examination by Hazard and could not go forward with abandon because of the Belgian's stationing behind him.
The counter-attacking pace of Chelsea left him chasing shadows at times in midfield. Gave it away when City needed to retain possession too.
Caught flat-footed on a few occasions and should probably have seen red for his late foul on Ramires.
Put one on a plate for Toure in a chance that should have opened the scoring and was consistent from attacking spaces.
Missed two sensational chances which should have turned the game to City's favor, and despite his neat link-up play it is for those he will be remembered.
Bright and accurate with his deliveries, he was again a good outlet for his teammates.
Threatened to steal the game away from Chelsea in the first half with his dribbling ability and range of passing but faded as the Blues won the midfield battle.
Appeared unable to score in front of goal, where he missed a number of passable opportunities to tally.
An off night for the Spain international, he failed with his only real sight of goal early in the first half, and his partnership with Dzeko was all too static.
Overcame early jitters to make stunning second-half saves from Silva and Jovetic.
Tucked in on the left side of the Chelsea defense and made sure Navas had few options with waspish closing down.
Played a simple game leading the defense around him and extinguishing City threats with little fuss.
Not one of those nights to be marauding forward but hit a brilliant first-half goal and defended diligently thereafter.
Effective in both boxes with a number of vital blocks and interceptions in front of Cech and hit the post on a corner.
Put energy into Chelsea counters by winning his challenges in the City half and excelled in the midfield duo alongside Matic.
Efficiently understated display from the ever-willing Brazilian who was positioned optimally every time Chelsea made a breakaway.
Occupied the space between midfield and attack well, linking up with Ramires and Hazard. Good threat on the break through the middle.
Solid display in the heart of midfield from the Serb who not only broke play up but also threatened with his through passes and shooting ability. Hit the post with an expert drive.
Terrifying is the only word for it. Toyed with the City back four with his panache and confidence. Set up the goal with his ability to dribble and draw in defenders.
Worked hard and gave Chelsea a decent reference in attack even if he was largely fed scraps. Hit the post with his only real chance.
