Sensational City Smash Three Past Everton!

Sterling, Rodri, and Silva all find the back of the net at the Etihad, as a Rampant Manchester City overpower Everton!

Manchester City moved to within three points of league leaders, Chelsea, following a 3-0 home victory over Rafael Benítez’s Everton on Sunday.

Raheem Sterling fired City into the lead just before the break, with a sweetly-struck finish, after a fine ball by João Cancelo, before Rodri smashed in a stunning second. Bernardo Silva finished off the scoring with a well-taken third, four minutes from the final whistle.

The win was the perfect answer to Chelsea and Liverpool’s wins over Leicester and Arsenal respectively on Saturday, moving City back into second before their attentions turn to Wednesday’s huge Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

Everton, who were already struggling with injury absences to first-team regulars, including Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Yerry Mina, suffered another early setback when Demarai Gray limped off, to be replaced by Alex Iwobi.

Everton found it difficult to get out of their own half and after they gave the ball away once too often, Sterling pounced, powered into the box and was pushed by Michael Keane.

Referee Stuart Attwell gave a penalty, but after being told to consult the pitch-side monitor by VAR Chris Kavanagh, he changed his mind and overruled his original decision.

Everton thought they had survived to half time with the game goalless, but Cancelo and City had other ideas. City’s full-back floated a sublime ball with the outside of his right foot that evaded the Everton defence and Sterling, on his 300th league appearance, finished first time to round off a fantastic move.

City made it two in some style soon after half time, as Rodri thundered in a powerful drive that left Everton keeper Jordan Pickford, powerless. As replays of the goal were shown on the big screen at the Etihad afterwards, the finish produced audible gasps from the home crowd.

There was still time for Silva to slip through undetected and slot past Pickford, to cap a fine day for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Everton are now in 11th place in the EPL, on 15 points. Manchester City go into second, on 26 points, just 3 behind leaders, Chelsea.
