Bukayo Saka (RW) - 8/10 - This was as threatening as I've seen Saka in a while. Explosive one-v-one and superb when combining in and around the box, Saka's bright performance was rewarded with a goal.

Gabriel Jesus (ST) - 8/10 - Thought we'd be lamenting his gilt-edge miss early on in the first half, but he made up for it with a clever finish. Jesus then teed up his side's second before his withdrawal in the closing stages.

Gabriel Martinelli (LW) - 4/10 - Too cautious when he received possession in the final third. After his late brace last time out, Martinelli reverted to his 2023/24 type on Tuesday night.
