It has been a historic season for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who have broken records and reached new heights in the Premier League during the 2017/18 season.
With a record total of 100 points and a style of football that has simply left them uncatchable at the top of the pile.
Gabriel Jesus’ late goal at Southampton saw City finished the season in style on the road, securing their place in the history books.
Guardiola’s men lifted the Premier League trophy and the Carabao Cup in what are the first pieces of silverware in a new era at Manchester City.
As with every season, some players stood out and some fell by the wayside and that has been no different with Manchester City this season.
With the campaign done and dusted, we now have a chance to reflect on the season as a whole and dish out some player ratings from Guardiola’s men.
Manchester City player ratings: 2017/18 season
Ederson - 8.5
Many doubted how much of a difference one goalkeeper could make to a team, but Ederson has transformed the way City play.
The ability to act as another defender through his incredible technical ability has been key for Guardiola’s men. Narrowly beaten to the Golden Glove by David de Gea.
Claudio Bravo - 5
The Chilean has really fallen out of favour this season and has probably played his last game for the club. Bravo’s decline only emphasises Ederson’s importance to the team.
Kyle Walker - 8
Walker made an instant impact following his arrival from Spurs.
Full-backs were one of the key areas that needed to be improved over the summer and it was Walker who City splashed the cash on.
It paid dividends as Walker started 32 league games as was ever present in the City squad, offering a real attacking threat down the right-hand side.
Danilo - 6
Walker’s success means Danilo has been limited to just 13 starts in the Premier League.
The Brazilian has struggled on occasions since joining from Real Madrid but has been a useful addition to the City squad.
Nicolas Otamendi - 7
One of the defenders to step up this season has been Otamendi, helping City on their way to the Premier League title.
The defender, who has been known to be error-prone in the past, has been a key figure at the back with 34 domestic appearances.
The former Valencia defender has simplified his game and that has benefitted both him and City.
Vincent Kompany - 7
Kompany only started 17 Premier League games but he remained a key figure in the squad.
Guardiola hailed his influence off the pitch throughout the season, something that has been key in their title success.
John Stones - 6
Stones started the season very well and looked like he would go on to be a key figure in Guardiola’s defence, but the January arrival of Aymeric Laporte saw him lose his place in the squad and even put his World Cup place in doubt.
The former Everton man will be out to impress over the summer in a bid to win his place in the side back.
Aymeric Laporte - 7
As mentioned, Laporte joined the club in January from Athletic Bilbao and came straight into the side.
He took a few matches to get up to speed with the Premier League but soon settled and looks like a smart piece of business from City. The best will come from him next season.
Eliaquim Mangala - 4
Mangala started the season at Manchester City but had fallen out favour before joining Everton on loan. A player who is unlikely to play for the club again.
Benjamin Mendy - 5
Benjamin Mendy was hailed as one City’s key summer signings but a long-term injury cut his season short back in September against Crystal Palace.
City will see the best out of the Frenchman next season if he stays injury free.
Fabian Delph - 7
Delph became Guardiola’s utility man this season, covering for Mendy at left-back.
The former Aston Villa midfielder was one of the players that was written off under Guardiola, but he has found himself a place in the squad.
Oleksandr Zinchenko - 6
Zinchenko has been one of the few youngsters that has managed to break into the City squad this season.
He has shown signs of promise and looks like he could be a valuable squad member going forward.
Yaya Toure - 6
In his final season at the Etihad, Toure has seen his game time dwindle drastically.
The Ivorian, like Kompany, has remained a key figure off the pitch and a valuable squad member but City now have the task of replacing him this summer. Something that will not be easy after eight seasons with the club.
Bernardo Silva - 7.5
Silva started the season slowly after joining from Monaco, but come into his own towards the end of the season.
The Portuguese international suffered from Guardiola’s rotation but scored some important goals during the second half of the season, including against Chelsea and Arsenal.
Looks like a fantastic long-term replacement for his namesake David Silva.
Ilkay Gündogan - 7
Gündogan is another player who has simply suffered from rotation and the form of those around him.
Injuries have often got the better of the German as well this season, meaning he has started just 15 times in the Premier League.
He has impressed when he has been called upon with a number of classy performances but needs to beat his injury problems next season.
Fernandinho - 9
The Brazilian has gone under the radar this season but he has quickly become one of Guardiola’s most valuable players.
Sitting in the pivot of midfield, Fernandinho has been at the heart of everything City do well. Be it starting attacks or breaking them up, he does it. He gives those in front of him the freedom to do what they do.
Kevin De Bruyne - 9.5
Where do you start with this man? Mohamed Salah may have beaten him to the awards but he has been in sensational form this season.
Eight goals and an incredible 16 assists helped City on their way to the Premier League title.
The Belgian is head and shoulders above anyone else in the division and he cemented himself as one of the best in Europe this season.
Raheem Sterling - 8
Sterling, like Bernardo Silva, has endured spells in and out of the team, but that has not stopped the former Liverpool man.
Guardiola has improved his end product massively, which is reflected in the impressive 23 goals he scored in all competitions this season.
City will be keen to tie him down to a long-term contract over the summer.
Leroy Sane - 8
Leroy Sane has given City fans a glimpse into the future this season with his incredible form.
The German was named as the PFA Young Player of the Year after a standout campaign.
Going forward he offers City something a little different with lightning quick speed and a deadly left foot to match.
With 10 Premier League goals to his name, Sane is only going to get better whilst he is at Manchester City.
David Silva - 8.5
Silva has been a true professional this season. The Spaniard has had to deal with family issues off the pitch but has handled himself brilliantly.
With nine goals and 11 assists to his name, he remains a key member of the City squad. He may see his influence decrease next season but his technique and class remains unquestionable.
Phil Foden - 5
If there’s one complaint City fans may have with Guardiola is they have not seen enough of Phil Foden.
He has come off the bench five times in the Premier League and shown flashes of brilliance. Looks a real prospect for the future, if he can get the game time.
Brahim Diaz - 5
Diaz is another star for the future who has been on the fringes of the first-team. He and Foden will be hoping for more action next season.
Gabriel Jesus - 7.5
A nasty knee injury in the new year meant City saw less of Jesus than they would have hoped.
Despite that, he had an impressive return of 13 Premier League goals in 19 starts, including the one that secured their final three points of the season, taking them to a total of 100.
At just 21 years old, Jesus is another player who City will see the best of in years to come.
Sergio Aguero - 8.5
Manchester City’s main man scored an incredible 21 goals in 23 league starts this season.
He also became the club’s record goalscorer earlier in the campaign, etching his name in the history books.
There are doubts over his long-term future at the club but he has proved this season that he still has plenty to offer.
