Jet heeled Martin Petrov was everywhere on Sunday and played a key role in securing City’s latest cup win. He’s the VMC Forum’s Man of The Match…

When you consider that Petrov has recovered from serious injury, it’s to his absolute credit that on his day he can be world class.

Frustratingly for Sven-Goran Eriksson, Mark Hughes and Roberto Mancini, Rigsby has often lapsed into a comfort zone when selected regularly. But when his place in the side is under threat, he turns it on.

Robinho, for all the frustration, stunning talent and erratic form he brings, ends his City career with a goal and second place in our poll.

All in all a good weekend for City with a lot of first team regulars successfully rested for D-Day with the rags.

Stay tuned with VMC for the big match build up.

17. Martin Petrov [46.15%]
10. De Souza Robinho [15.38%]
16. Silvio Sylvinho [11.54%]
48. Abdisalam Ibrahim [11.54%]
44. Dedryk Boyata [7.69%]
45. Greg Cunningham [3.85%]

34. Nigel De Jong [0%]
