Joao Cancelo’s stunning assist inspired Manchester City to a routine 3-0 victory over Everton and second place in the Premier League.

Cancelo magic inspires Man City stroll
With Chelsea and Liverpool both claiming victories this weekend, it was imperative the champions kept their side of the bargain in the title race. They were utterly dominant for swathes of the first half but found Everton a tough nut to crack.

That early breakthrough eluded City in increasingly agonising circumstances. Cole Palmer, on his first Premier League start, failed to turn the ball home after a deflected Cancelo shot fell for him in the area before Phil Foden steered a header wide after brilliantly contorting his body to get on the end of Sterling’s cross.

Demarai Gray, Everton’s brightest attacking prospect, was forced off injured after just 16 minutes, with Alex Iwobi coming on in his place, and Everton’s attacking threat diminished significantly as City seized the invitation to turn up the pressure.

A flurry of chances leading up to the half-hour passed City by, as Sterling headed over from Foden’s cross, Ilkay Gundogan clipped the top of the bar with a header of his own after Jordan Pickford had smothered Bernardo Silva’s chipped shot before Palmer’s shot on the swivel drew a save at full stretch from the Everton stopper.

City were awarded a penalty soon after when Sterling went to ground under the challenge of Michael Keane, but referee Stuart Atwell overturned his decision after being instructed to consult the pitchside monitor by the VAR.

But City didn’t have to wait much longer for the breakthrough, and when it came, it was worth the wait. Cancelo’s sumptuous pass with the outside of his right boot unpicked the Everton defence and was dispatched with aplomb by Sterling, whose half-volley flashed past a helpless Pickford.

City needed just 10 second-half minutes to double their lead and effectively put the game out of reach as Rodri’s 25-yard thunderbolt swung away from the diving Pickford and into the top corner of the Everton net.

With an eye on Wednesday’s crunch Champions League clash with PSG, Foden was withdrawn and his replacement, Riyad Mahrez, almost produced an instant impact but dragged a shot wide of the near post.

With nothing to lose, Everton threw caution to the wind as the game progressed and enjoyed fleeting forays into the final third but never possessed the attacking quality to concern champions, who put the game to bed four minutes from time when Bernardo Silva turned home Palmer’s blocked shot.
A comprehensive and confident home win for Man City. Two stunning goals from Raheem Sterling and Rodri were followed by the easiest of finishes for the once again brilliant Bernardo Silva
