Manchester City still not mathematically securing this season’s English Premier League title, though they’re certainly inching closer following their 3-1 away win over Everton this Saturday.
Playing away from home didn’t stop City from dominating proceedings as they pushed forward vigorously since kick off which earned them an early goal scored by Leroy Sane after just four minutes of play.
That quick goal gave more comfort for Pep Guardiola’s men as they continue their aggressive attacking play which led to the second goal, netted by Gabriel Jesus on 12 minutes.
The match was basically sealed during that first 45 minutes with Man City taking a 3-0 lead on 37 minutes, this time through Raheem Sterling’s effort.
Having such comfortable lead slightly affected the away side’s focus as they found themselves conceding a consolation goal from Everton with Yannick Bolasie scoring on 63 minutes.
Nevertheless, that Bolasie’s effort didn’t make much impact as Guardiola’s men comfortably see of that match with a 3-1 victory.
Earlier, Man United picked up a positive result as they defeated Swansea City 2-0 with two first half goals from Romelu Lukaku along with Alexis Sanchez.
An important victory indeed for Jose Mourinho’s men as they look to secure that second place spot from Liverpool’s threat as the Reds also won their game, beating Crystal Palace 2-1.
