Claudio Bravo- 6

Made some good saves to weather the early Celtic storm, but will be disappointed on the night to let in three goals.

Pablo Zabaleta- 5

Looked to get forward more as the game went on, but had a minimal impact. He had his hands full for most of the night anyway with having to deal with the threat of Scott Sinclair down the left.

Nicolas Otamendi- 5

Not a great defensive night all round, and Otamendi will be looking to lead his the defence to a better record in the Premier League

Aleksandar Kolarov- 5

Got the nod to start ahead of John Stones to the surprise of some. A horrible attempt of a clearance that allowed Dembele to score his second. Not a great night for Kolarov.

Gael Clichy- 5

Fernandinho- 8

Played really well in the midfield for Manchester City, making some good tackles in the holding roll, and looking to carry the ball forward with purpose. A good night and performance from him, not to mention his equaliser early on.

Ilkay Gundogan- 7

Played down the middle, in a similar position to the one taken up by David Silva. He showed some flashes of what he can do, providing the Celtic defence with something to think about when he had the ball.

David Silva- 7

A great performance from David Silva. He looked to spread the play well, and provided those short intricate passes, playing an excellent ball through to Sergio Aguero in the build-up to the third goal.

Raheem Sterling- 8

Had a tremendous game down the right-hand side. He recovered well from his own-goal to fire City level with a composed finish, and looked a huge threat to the Celtic defence every time he got the ball.

Nolito- 7

Aimed to cause problems down the left-hand side, and often looked to cut inside onto his right foot to cause trouble. Took his goal in the second half well to fire City level for the third time in the game.

Sergio Aguero- 6

Was left isolated up top for most of the game in a most uncharacteristic performance. As a result, the Argentine had to take up slightly unnatural positions, and should have tucked away his chance in the second half. Little did it matter as Nolito was there to score from the follow-up. Slightly under par from Aguero on the night.
