City failed to register a victory against the Toffees in their last three visits to Goodison Park. Pep Guardiola wanted to make sure that he won’t leave the ground without securing all three points this time.
Leroy Sane opened the scoring for City in the 4th minute from David Silva’s cross. Eight minutes later Gabriel Jesus headed in from Kevin De Bruyne cross and Sterling completes the scoreline from another of Silva’s cross.

All of the three City front-men where on the scoresheet before the half-time. The job was already done. It was now Merseyside time to react, but it was too late to overcome the 0-3 deficit. Yannick Bolaise 63rd minute strike only proved to be a consolation prize as City secured the comfortable 3-1 victory.
Now, it all comes to Manchester derby at Etihad next week. It will be after many years that Premier League is decided so early with six round of matches remain to play. Jose Mourinho needs to bring his A-game to outsmart their city rival coach Pep Guardiola.
