[Goals Highlight] Sane, Jesus Score As Manchester City Beat Everton 3-1 In The Premier League [watch]
Manchester City warmed up for a season-defining month with a commanding 3-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park to set up a potential Premier League title party against rivals United.
Pep Guardiola’s side face Liverpool over two legs in the Champions League quarter-final and welcome their bitter Manchester rivals to the Etihad Stadium in April, when they will also travel to Tottenham.
It is a run of games that could see them win the Premier League and take a huge step towards European glory, making Saturday’s dominant triumph a timely one as a victory next weekend would seal the top-flight crown.
The damage was done inside 12 minutes against a lacklustre Toffees team, with Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus on target, the former capping a fine move.
Everton won this fixture 4-0 last season, serving Guardiola with the biggest league loss of his managerial career, but the hosts – who also grabbed a draw in Manchester in August – were well off the pace on this occasion.
Guardiola’s 50th English top-flight victory – which saw City become only the third team to beat all 19 opponents in a single Premier League campaign – was wrapped up before the break as Raheem Sterling got in on the act, with Yannick Bolasie’s consolation goal doing nothing to prevent the leaders restoring their 16-point advantage at the summit.
