Otamendi tackles Anthony Martial in the Manchester derby.

While City continue to bang in the goals at one end – if Sergio Aguero played more than one match he probably would have won this award – their summer signing Otamendi has looked more composed after a stuttering start to his career in England.

The £32m buy from Valencia was deservedly given the Sky Sports man of the match award after an impressive defensive performance in the goalless draw against arch-rivals United at Old Trafford.

The Argentina international proved he can be a threat at the other end as well though, with a goal in the win against Norwich at the Etihad on Saturday.
