That brings an end to our coverage of the Premier League fixture between Everton and Manchester City at Goodison Park. Thank you very much for joining us. Goodbye!
Everton travel to Anfield to face Liverpool for the Merseyside derby next time out in the Premier League. Manchester City, meanwhile, play Arsenal at Emirates Stadium and will be looking to continue their impressive form.
Following a competitive fixture, Manchester City leave Goodison Park with all three points and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 10 points. Foden fired Guardiola’s team into the lead just after the half-hour mark, before a slice of good fortune saw Richarlison equalise five minutes later. After the break, the Citizens turned on the style, with second-half goals from Mahrez and Silva putting the game beyond Everton.
90′ + 4′ FULL TIME: EVERTON 1-3 MANCHESTER CITY
90′ + 3′ CLOSE! Mahrez picks the ball up a few yards outside of the Everton penalty area and works his way into the box before sending a left-footed shot just wide of the far post.
90′ + 2′ There is going to be a momentary stoppage in play as Cancelo is down after being caught on the knee by Rodriguez. He is now back to his feet and able to continue.
90′ + 1′ With two minutes left of additional time, Fernandinho replaces Rodrigo. It remains 3-1.
90′ There will be three minutes of added time at the end of this match.
88′ Doucoure picks up the ball down the right flank and looks to drive Everton up the field. From deep, the Frenchman attempts to find Richarlison, but Dias is well placed to intercept the long-range pass.
86′ Jesus shows great pace to skip away from Holgate down the left flank and drive into the box, although his pass for Mahrez is hooked to safety by Digne.
84′ The Toffees have dropped deeper into their own half for the closing stages of this game, but City continue to look for further goal-scoring opportunities.
82′ Digne’s flick on from Keane’s long, searching pass almost sets King away in behind, but Ederson is quickly off his line to snuff out the threat.
80′ Following that third goal, Guardiola brings on the returning De Bruyne for Sterling.
79′ Silva has now scored and assisted in a single Premier League game for the first time since March 2019 against Fulham.
77′ This goal is the visitors at their very best. Mahrez drifts into space in a wide position down the right-hand side before playing a first-time pass to Jesus, who shows great awareness to pick out Silva. There was a real injection of pace in that move, and Everton were unable to read the danger quickly enough.
77′ GOAL! City add their third! Some excellent link-up play down the right creates the space for Jesus to lay the ball off for Silva. The winger dummies a first-time shot on the edge of the area to get the better of Keane, before then fiercely lashing a strike into the bottom-left corner. 3-1.
75′ Only Mohamed Salah (74) has scored more left-footed Premier League goals since the start of the 2014-15 season than Mahrez (48).
73′ Richarlison backs into Dias in seeking to bring down a lofted forward pass, and manages to win a free-kick just inside the Citizens’ half from the Portuguese defender.
71′ City are now content to knock the ball around in central areas as they patiently look for openings. Everton, meanwhile, are penned in their own half.
69′ It is a double change for the Toffees, as Rodriguez enters the fray in place of Davies.
69′ After going behind, Ancelotti calls on his bench, bringing off Iwobi for King.
67′ With Coleman looking to break down the right, Sterling cynically drags the full-back to the ground and is shown a yellow card.
65′ Cancelo lofts a cross in from the left, but it is easily collected by Pickford.
63′ Silva deserves a lot of credit for his role in the goal. After the play got switched over to the right for Walker, the Portuguese playmaker drifted into a central position, which opened up the space for Mahrez to fire beyond Pickford.
63′ GOAL! WHAT A STRIKE! Silva picks the ball up on the edge of the Everton penalty area and holds up the play as he waits for the run of Mahrez. The Portuguese winger then deftly tees it up for the underlapping Mahrez, who curls a first-time strike into the top-left corner. 2-1.
61′ JUST WIDE! Foden’s in-swinging corner from the right is met by Rodrigo, but his close-range header fizzes beyond the far post. That was not too far away.
59′ Foden forces Coleman to turn and run back towards his goal after applying relentless pressure on the full-back. Pickford then opts to go long to try and beat the press.
57′ Iwobi almost manages to collect the loose ball and launch a counter, although Rodrigo was alert to the threat and moved across to make a vital interception.
55′ GREAT MOVE! Walker drives in field with the ball and sets Jesus away down the left side of the penalty area. The Brazilian takes a touch to set himself, but fires his left-footed shot wide of the near post. He should do better there.
54′ Sterling switches the play over to the right flank for Mahrez, but the Algerian’s low cross is easily gathered by Pickford.
53′ The last team to beat City in a top-flight game after conceding the first goal were Leicester back in September.
51′ SMART SAVE! Cancelo finds Jesus inside the hosts’ box with a ball over the top, and Holgate inadvertently lays it into the path of Silva. From the right side of the area, the winger fires towards the bottom-right corner, but Pickford is quickly down to parry the strike away.
49′ Richarlison is caught late and from behind by Dias, and the home side win a free-kick midway inside their half.
47′ Rodrigo works the ball over to the right for Mahrez, who darts inside and goes for goal, but his effort is blocked by Holgate.
46′ We are back underway! Marriner, the referee, blows his whistle and Everton get the second half kicked off.
Despite having few clear-cut chances, Ancelotti will be pleased with his team’s first-half display. The Toffees have looked dangerous on numerous occasions when advancing down the right through Iwobi, and that will likely be an area that the hosts will look to target after the break. Guardiola, on the other hand, will hope to see more ruthlessness from his side in the second half. The Citizens have dominated the ball throughout, but have thus far failed to ask too many questions of Pickford.
After a tightly-contested opening half, there is nothing to separate Everton and City and half-time. The hosts started the game brightly with Jesus lifting a close-range effort over the bar on 18 minutes, before Foden broke the deadlock when his deflected shot looped beyond Pickford just after the half-hour mark. Everton, however, were not behind for long. Five minutes later, Digne struck the post with a fierce strike and the ball cannoned into the centre of the goal from close range off Richarlison.
45′ + 2′ HALF TIME: EVERTON 1-1 MANCHESTER CITY
45′ Richarlison picks up a yellow card for dissent following a foul on Foden in the centre of the pitch.
45′ There will be two minutes of added time at the end of this half.
43′ Foden barges into the back of Davies when competing for an aerial ball, and Everton are awarded a free-kick on the edge of their own area.
41′ Following his goal, only Sterling (20) and De Bruyne (18) have been involved in more goals for City in all competitions this season than Foden (17).
39′ SAVE! Rodrigo’s cross is nodded down by Keane and Foden unleashes a well-struck volley towards goal from the edge of area. Pickford watches it all the way and claims the effort at his near post.
37′ GOAL! Everton are level! Iwobi slips the ball into Coleman, who lifts a cross into the box from the right side of the area. Unmarked at the far post, Digne fires a first-time shot against the post, which deflects off Richarlison and into the back of the net. 1-1.
36′ Davies is caught by Rodrigo deep inside the hosts’ half and the referee awards Everton a free-kick.
34′ The home side push forward looking for an immediate response. From the right, Iwobi opens up his body to whip a cross into the box, although it sails over the top of Ederson’s goal.
32′ GOAL! City take the lead! After Everton failed to effectively clear the corner, a cross back into the penalty area ricocheted around before falling to Foden. The midfielder took his time and fired a right-footed shot towards goal from the middle of the box, which deflected off Coleman and into the bottom-left corner. Pickford had no chance with that. 1-0.
32′ Mahrez shifts the ball expertly onto his left foot after creating a yard of space and floats a dangerous cross towards the far post. With Sterling lurking, Keane nods it behind for a corner.
30′ Sterling has scored in each of his last four away appearances for the Citizens in all competitions. The last City player to score in five in a row was Aguero between April and September in 2019. Can the Englishman find the breakthrough at Goodison Park?
28′ Jesus shows quick feet to knock the ball away from Doucoure midway inside the hosts’ half before being taken out by the Frenchman, who is shown a yellow card. He can have no complaints with that decision.
26′ The away side work the ball over to the left-hand side of the Everton penalty area for Jesus, who cuts inside and sees his right-footed shot blocked by Keane.
24′ Laporte attempts to thread the ball forward for Sterling, who is being held by Coleman. Free-kick City.
23′ Holgate fires a pinpoint pass down the left-hand side for Digne to chase. The Frenchman does well initially to control the ball, but Walker shows his strength to hold off the Everton full-back and regain possession for the visitors.
21′ The Toffees are struggling to get hold of the ball and break out of their own half at present. Foden picks up a dangerous position down the left, although his throughball for Sterling runs through for Pickford to gather.
19′ Walker finds space down the right to whip a cross in towards the back post, but his delivery sails behind for a goal-kick.
18′ The home side are forced into making their first change of the match. Coleman comes on for the injured Mina.
17′ GREAT CHANCE! Davies sloppily loses the ball midway inside his own half, and Rodrigo pounces to loft a throughball in behind the hosts’ defence for Jesus. The Brazilian takes a touch to set himself before lifting his effort from the centre of the box over the bar.
15′ There is going to be a brief stoppage in play as Mina is down and in need of treatment. Coleman is readying himself.
14′ NO PENALTY! Silva skips beyond Keane down the right side of the Everton penalty area before going to ground under pressure from the Englishman. The referee awards a corner, and that decision is confirmed by VAR.
12′ Richarlison steals the ball from Silva on the halfway line and looks to run at the visitors’ defence. His first touch, however, is heavy, and City are able to regain possession.
10′ The Citizens win another corner, and Keane rises highest to power Foden’s set-piece delivery to safety.
9′ Sterling gets the better of Holgate and wins a corner to the left off Mina. The out-swinging delivery from Foden comes to nothing.
7′ Mahrez looks to drive at Godfrey and whip the ball into the box, although his delivery deflects off the Everton defender into Davies. Silva then picks up the loose ball and sees his effort towards the bottom-right corner saved by Pickford.
6′ Thus far, Guardiola’s side have had 76 per cent of the possession.
4′ Iwobi does well to retain possession in an advanced position down the right-hand side of the field before laying the ball off for Holgate. His cross into the area is hooked to safety at the second time of asking by Laporte.
2′ SAVE! The visitors have settled nicely into their rhythm in the opening stages. Cancelo picks the ball up in a central area outside the box, cuts onto his right foot, and forces a save from Pickford at his near post.
1′ Kick off! The referee, Andre Marriner, blows his whistle and City get the game underway.
The teams are out, and kick-off will soon be upon us here at Goodison Park.
Everton have won just one of their last 14 Premier League games against Manchester City (D4 L9), winning 4-0 in January 2017 at Goodison Park.
Heading into this match, Ancelotti’s team have struggled at Goodison Park of late, failing to win at home in any of their last four Premier League matches. Not only that, but the Toffees last kept a top-flight clean sheet against Sheffield United at the end at December. However, Everton currently sit seventh in the table, and will go level on points with Liverpool should they beat City. The Citizens, on the other hand, are on an 11-match unbeaten run and are seven points clear of Manchester United at the top of the table. On the road, Guardiola’s side have been defensively solid, conceding only twice in their previous six away games.
Carlo Ancelotti makes four changes from the Everton side that lost to Fulham last time out. Pickford, Mina, Keane and Iwobi come in to start ahead of Olsen, Coleman, Gomes and Rodriguez. The City line-up, on the other hand, features three alterations from their three-goal win over Tottenham. Dias and Walker replace Stones and Zinchenko, while Mahrez starts in place of Ilkay Gundogan, who misses out with a groin injury.
MANCHESTER CITY SUBS: Zack Steffen, John Stones, Eric Garcia, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Benjamin Mendy, Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne, Ferran Torres, Sergio Aguero.
EVERTON SUBS: Robin Olsen, Seamus Coleman, Niels Nkounkou, Andre Gomes, Tyler Onyango, Fabian Delph, Bernard, James Rodriguez, Joshua King.
MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson; Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo; Bernardo Silva, Rodrigo, Phil Foden; Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus.
EVERTON (3-4-3): Jordan Pickford; Yerry Mina, Michael Keane, Mason Holgate; Ben Godfrey, Tom Davies, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Lucas Digne; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Iwobi, Richarlison.
Everton are looking for a response against Pep Guardiola’s team following their 2-0 defeat to Fulham in their previous top-flight outing. Manchester City, meanwhile, will be full of confidence after beating Tottenham 3-0 last time out.
