It proved to be a relatively comfortable afternoon for Guardiola’s men on Merseyside, who weathered an early storm from the Toffees, before netting in the 37th minute via a sublime Ilkay Gundogan touch and flick inside the box. Erling Haaland grabbed another courtesy of a powerful header at the back post that ensured City led by two goals at the break.
Gundogan then netted from a free-kick in the early stages of the second half to kill off any faint hopes of a comeback. From there, the game was something of a non-event, as City kept the ball without over-exerting themselves in their hunt for a fourth goal.
However, the away supporters enjoyed the short trip to Goodison and went through their usual repertoire of songs while the home fans were largely subdued in the latter stages. City mocked the flat atmosphere - especially in comparison to the spirited roars early on - by chanting ‘is this the Etihad?’ at the opposition fans.
The City supporters were, of course, poking fun at themselves in the process, given the often unfair stereotype that the Etihad lacks atmosphere and doesn’t sell out.
Meanwhile, the away section also chanted that Everton were ‘going down’ with City’s win meaning Sean Dyche’s side could drop into the relegation zone on Monday if Leicester City can beat Liverpool.
As for the visitors, the victory on Sunday moves them a step closer to winning another Premier League title.
