Unlucky Manchester City Settle For Late Draw Against Everton

Ronald Koeman would have been the happier manager on Saturday evening as Manchester City played out a 1-1 draw against Everton.

Pep Guardiola has now gone two games without winning having lost to Tottenham two weeks ago will definitely have cause for concern. Despite dominating possession for long spells, City struggled to create clear-cut chances.

Sergio Aguero was on the bench and in his place, twenty-year-old Iheanacho was given a starting role. Pep was ostensibly resting Aguero for the Wednesday UEFA Champions League clash against Barcelona.

Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling also featured alongside Kevin De Bruyne and despite stringing several passes together, City failed to score.

Romelu Lukaku who was hardly lively throughout the game put Everton ahead and beating Cliché and then Claudio Bravo. Jagielka gave City a way back into the match twice as he conceded two penalties.

However, Sketelenburg denied Sterling and then Aguero to keep Everton ahead. Nolito proved to be the super sub as he scored with his first touch of the game to draw matters level.

Pep might feel hard done but Everton will have no complaints!
