Hart - Looked fairly commanding against some early Stoke pressure. Didn't face many shots but stood firm when needed. 6.5

Richards - Great piece of skill for the goal that could (should) have won the game. Still not convinced he has what it takes from a defensive standpoint. 6.5

Kolo Toure - A little below recent performances. A poor decision to hit the ball long that ultimately led to Stoke's equaliser. 6

Kompany - A tough afternoon but came out well against Jones and Fuller. 7

Kolarov - Again impressed going forward and looks to be a sound signing from Mancini. 7

de Jong - Didn't command the midfield like he has done in recent times. 6

Barry - A good second half and continued his better attacking play from last week. 7

Milner - Struggled a little; caught between a central and left sided role and failed to really create. 5.5

Silva - The best on display. Some quality movement and touches although couldn't quite add the finish. 7

Balotelli - A couple of nice touches but a little too much time appearing frustrated with the world. 5.5

Tevez - Willing and hard working but couldn't escape the attention of the Stoke back line. 6.5

Sub:

Johnson - A surprise move having got the lead. Little impact. 6
