Man City vs Everton LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction

Pep Guardiola: “I could not be in a better place right now.”

Follow live reaction after Manchester City beat Everton to move second in the Premier League table.

Raheem Sterling put City ahead, a minute before the break, side-footing home after a magnificent ball, struck with the outside of his foot, by full back Joao Cancelo.

Rodri made it 2-0 with a thundering long-distance strike that whistled past Everton keeper Jordan Pickford.

Sterling missed a great chance to end the contest but mis-controlled the ball in front of goal after a low cross from Riyad Mahrez.

Cole Palmer, the 19-year-old making his first Premier League start, had set Mahrez through for that opportunity and his blocked shot was pounced on by Bernardo Silva who calmly slotted home the third.

Man City 3-0 Everton: Reaction from Rodri

A delighted Rodri spoke to Sky Sports after his player of the match performance helped Man City to a 3-0 win over Everton at the Etihad Stadium. Rodri scored City’s second goal and commanded the midfield allowing City to dominate almost 80% of possession. He said:

It’s always difficult after international break. The crowd realised how good we are at this moment of the season. I think we are outstanding right now.

“Of course very happy with my goal, I don’t score many. Many times I don’t have the opportunity to shoot as I pass, but at that moment I felt it, kind of a rocket. Very happy because the goal was a beauty.

“A special day for everyone. It has not been a good time for him [Raheem Sterling] but he showed his personality today. He has been such an important player for the club the last years. We need him. I am very glad and happy for him. He deserved this. He trained so well this week.”

Tottenham vs Leeds

Tottenham have won their last four home league meetings with Leeds. This is their 100th meeting in all competitions, with Spurs ahead by 37 wins to Leeds’ 33.

Should be a good contest despite the injuries inflicted on the Leeds line-up.

Tottenham vs Leeds

Reaction from the Etihad Stadium still to come but next up Tottenham take on Leeds to close out the Premier League weekend.

Here’s a reminder of the teams:

Tottenham: Lloris; Tanganga, Dier, Davies; Emerson Royal, Hojbjerg, Winks, Reguilon; Lucas Moura, Son; Kane.

Japhet Tanganga replaces Cristian Romero in the Spurs back three and Oliver Skipp’s suspension means Harry Winks starts in midfield. Those are the only changes made by Antonio Conte

Leeds: Meslier; Dallas, Llorente, Cooper, Struijk; Phillips; James, Forshaw, Klich, Harrison; Gelhardt

Raphinha, Rodrigo, and Bamford are all injured meaning Mateusz Klich and Adam Forshaw start in midfield and 19-year-old Joe Gelhardt starts up top. Gelhardt is a promising youngster and will put in a shift for the Whites today.

The Premier League standings

That victory moves Manchester City back above Liverpool and into second place in the Premier League. They’re three points behind leaders Chelsea and look to be back in dominant form after losing to Crystal Palace a couple of fixtures ago.

Everton remain in 11th but their form will be worrying for Rafa Benitez. No wins in over a month and a Merseyside derby on the horizon. The Toffees next match against Brentford is a big one now. They need to get a result there to bring back belief in themselves if nothing else.

Man City 3 – 0 Everton

89 mins: We’re going to see a couple of youngsters now as James McAtee replaces Cole Palmer for Manchester City and Tyler Onyango comes on in place of Allan for Everton.

Rodri has been named the player of the match and that’s a pretty good choice. He’s been brilliant today and got himself a goal.

GOAL! Man City 3 – 0 Everton (Bernardo, 86’)⚽️

86 mins: It’s three! Gundogan drives towards the Everton box and slips the ball to Palmer. He wants to score himself and choose to fire a left-footed shot towards the far corner instead of playing in Bernardo Silva. The effort is blocked by Anthony Gordon but rather unluckily for Everton the ball deflects into Bernardo’s path as he continues his run into the box from the right. He collects the ball and guides it sweetly past Pickford.
