Pep Guardiola’s side found the breakthrough after 24 minutes, Riyad Mahrez did brilliantly to go past Vitaliy Mykolenko before pulling it back for Erling Haaland to score his 21st Prmeier League goal of the season.
On the 64th minute Everton equalised in stunning fashion. Demarai Gray cut in from the left hand side before bending an effort perfectly into the top corner with Everton’s first shot on target of the match.
