Manchester City needed only a late goal from Phil Foden to upset Frank Lampard’s Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday evening in the Premier League.
The score was level at halftime, and the Toffees had much less possessions than City, but Richarlison, Gordon, and Iwobi were swift on the counterattack.
Despite having the majority of possession, City was also unable to score.
After then, Foden delivered the game-winning goal, which was extraordinarily lucky, but the champs will definitely believe they earned it after a fantastic second-half performance.
Everton did enough to earn a point, but they were severely penalised for one gaffe, for which they will feel they should have also gotten at least one penalty.
City’s Premier League lead has restored to six points, which Liverpool will not be able to reduce this week as they prepare for the EFL Cup final.
Even though they’re not at their best, league leaders must find ways to win, which Guardiola’s team did excellently.
Everton are still in 17th position, one point ahead of Burnley, have a few games in hand on the teams ahead of them, but it’s clear that they’re battling for their lives.
