Man City V Everton 

The match has ended, with a final score of Everton 0-3 Manchester City. Ilkay Gundogan scored two goals, which were supported by another goal from Erling Haaland.


Match Report

Ilkay Gundogan has been in fine form this season, but until recently he had not been particularly prolific in front of goal.

However, in just two Premier League games, he has managed to double his goal tally from four to eight, helping Manchester City move within six points of another league title.


This is a testament to the reliability and ruthlessness of Pep Guardiola’s latest City incarnation; a team that can draw goals and inspiration from just about anyone when required. In their recent match against Everton, City won 3-0 without breaking a sweat.

Everton were competitive for the first 35 minutes, but City scored twice in a minute, and the game was essentially over.


Gundogan’s opening goal was a flick over his shoulder reminiscent of Dennis Bergkamp’s signature style, and his second was a beautiful free-kick that seemed to take an age to arc into the goal.

Everton had an opportunity just before Gundogan’s goal, but Mason Holgate volleyed the ball over the bar from five yards out.


City’s victory was all the more impressive given that Guardiola had rested four key players ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg with Real Madrid.

The win was a reminder of how difficult it is to play against Guardiola’s team when they take the lead. Everton failed to pose any significant threat in the second half, and the match ended with City winning 3-0.
