“Unforeseeable! Gundogan’s double spells trouble for PL competitors as City extends their lead!”
In an awe-inspiring match, City flawlessly beat Everton 3-0, thereby increasing their lead over Arsenal by a whopping four points on the scoreboard. Despite being one point ahead of Leeds in the 18th position, Everton is still at risk of slipping into the relegation zone if Leicester beats Liverpool during their upcoming match. Pep Guardiola’s squad is on track to win a treble, considering their outstanding performance, while Everton’s future looks uncertain. Guardiola made some astute changes, benching four key players, including Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, and Jack Grealish. The visitors struggled to find their footing during the initial 35 minutes of the game, with Mason Holgate missing out on an excellent opportunity to open the scoring. Nevertheless, City ultimately dominated the game, securing the win with ease. Gundogan emerged as the hero of the evening, scoring two goals, including a brilliant flick pass that broke the deadlock, and creating another with a floated cross, which Haaland powered into the net. As a result, the German is likely to go out on a high note, with his contract up at the end of the season and Barcelona reportedly ready to sign him on a free transfer. For Everton, goal difference is everything; stopping the bleeding at three goals is a small consolation. However, they did come closest to scoring in the final quarter when Amadou Onana’s header crashed against the crossbar. In summary, City gave Everton a true run for their money, achieving what is likely to be a fifth title in six seasons.
