What Happened?

First Half: The visitors started with 3-4-3 formation and the strategy worked. Manchester City go ahead easily in the fourth minute when Leroy Sane volleyed it home. Well the second one was an absolutely wonderful. Brilliant ball from Ederson finding Sane, who plays the ball to Kevin De Bruyne. He crosses for Gabriel Jesus who heads home the second.


Goodison Park is in a state of shock. The Blues in total control and Sam Allardyce’s men looks out of idea. They look in mood to do some destruction. A beautiful work of possession finds David Silva and he crosses for Sterling and he taps-in for the third.

The first half ended with Manchester City leading by 3 goals.

Jose Mourinho: 

“Last season we won titles but finished sixth in the league,” United Boss told BBC Sport.

“We want to finish second this year and have 10 points more than last season, more goals scored, less goals conceded, but there is a club which is making it practically impossible to follow. In other leagues we would be fighting for the title.”

Second Half: In the second half, City resembled their dominance. The Blues are in no rush. Out of nothing, a beautiful low driven shot from Yannick Bolasie and Everton get a consolation. Fernadinho unleashes a vicious shot from 25 yards which goes just wide of the post.

Everton are much composed team in the second half. The Blues haven’t done much in the second-half. Chances fell to either sides but it was looking that City are prime dominators for everything – Blocks, well-timed tackles, clearances and perfectly-placed covering players.
