Aleix Garcia

Manchester United v Manchester City - EFL Cup Fourth Round
It was by no means a scintillating display from Aleix Garcia but nonetheless he was about as Guardiola-esque as it gets against Manchester United. The diminutive playmaker made a staggering 90 passes in central midfield, with a completion rate of 94.4%, and also created one scoring opportunity.

It was a solid contribution from the 19-year-old, who seemingly fits Guardiola’s philosophy perfectly, and we’re expecting to see him more frequently as the season goes on – especially if City suffer a few injuries in the middle of the park.
