Man City vs. Everton live score, updates, lineups and result from Premier League match today

Manchester City will try to return to the top of the Premier League for the first time since November when they host relegation-threatened Everton.

Monday’s come-from-behind 3-1 victory at Brentford, where Phil Foden scored a fabulous hat-trick, moved Pep Guardiola’s champions to within two points of Liverpool after the leaders lost by the same scoreline to title rivals Arsenal.

Luton Town’s impressive recent form has contributed to Everton dropping back into the relegation zone. Sean Dyche’s men are third bottom, a point behind the Hatters having played a game more.

Man City vs. Everton live updates, highlights and commentary

32nd minute: Ake with a thundering tackle on Calvert-Lewin to get Guardiola’s side back on the front foot. The Dutchman now crosses, Pickford misses it. Everton half clear before Foden’s shot is…yep, you guessed it… blocked.

31st minute: No joy from the host as Doku shuffles and has a shot blocked. 

30th minute: Lovely piece of skill from Alvarez to flick the ball over Young’s head. Then he gives the ball away. City’s half in a nutshell. They have it back though and Foden slides in an underlapping Nunes to win a corner on the right.

27th minute: Doku starting to purr now. He stands up a cross for Haaland, who can’t keep his header down.

26th minute: It’s been a fun physical battle between Dias and Calvert-Lewin so far. The Everton man bundles his way into a free-kick this time but there’s nothing doing from McNeil’s delivery from deep on the right.

25th minute: Godfrey over-commits and Doku gets goal side of him. Branthwaite makes an excellent clearance with Alvarez poised to convert. 

24th minute: Instinctive touch through by Alvarez to Haaland but he’s crowded out by three Everton bodies. At the other end, Akanji cuts out a through ball with Calvert-Lewin lurking.

22nd minute: Godfrey and Young double up on Doku to see off some danger. Everything going on in front of Everton right now and they’ll be very happy with that. Foden cuts in and lets fly but again there a salmon pink body in the way (fetching Everton kit, this one).

19th minute: Haaland turns on halfway to get City moving. Alvarez has a shot blocked by McNeil, his team’s first of the match. Doku telegraphs his intentions to be thwarted by the same outcome.

15th minute: Akanji concedes possession again. Calvert Lewin runs towards the home defence. He chips a fairly tame shot wide when he had McNeil on the charge to the left and in space. Poor decision and execution there.

13th minute: Akanji misplaces a fairly simple pass to Alvarez. Don’t think Guardiola told him to do that. All a bit clunky from City at the moment.

11th minute: Ederson is going to carry on but, interestingly, a replay just run in the press box appeared to show Godfrey kicking out and catching the City keeper in the face. Clearly that’s been deemed accidental and there’ll be no recourse to VAR.

10th minute: Ederson still down receiving treatment. He’s sitting up now. Guardiola has a fine understudy in Stefan Ortega, who might be called upon as he was against Newcastle last month. Akanji gets some instructions from Guardiola during the break. 

8th minute: City try to play out from the corner, not entirely effectively. Godfrey and Ederson challenge for the loose ball. The Brazilian goalkeeper gets there first but it’s a painful one for him. He needs some treatment.

7th minute: Some tidy play through midfield by Everton ends up with Mykolenko being released down the left. His cross is over Calvert-Lewin. Young drills back into the box and it’s cleared behind.

5th minute: An interesting setup from City so far, with Stones and Akanji each tucking into midfield from full-back. It just led to a fairly clunky bit of build-up play.

3rd minute: Alvarez booms an inswinging in under the crossbar but Pickford is equal to the task palming clear. Nunes’ follow-up cross is overhit, beyond Haaland.

2nd minute: Foden, fresh from his hat-trick in midweek, glides inside looking to cause trouble but his pass is blocked. Now here’s the twinkle-toed Doku on the other flank and Tarkowski clears his low cross behind for the game’s first corner.

1st minute: Off we go. Everton won the toss before kickoff and turned the teams around. It means that instead of kicking to the North Stand during the second half, City will be attacking the South Stand. This doesn’t happen very often. It did when they won the Premier League on the final day of the season in 2021/22.

3 mins before kickoff: Here come the teams, walking out at a packed Etihad. We’re almost ready to go. Both sets of fans booing the Premier League anthem. Lovely.

15 mins before kickoff: Julian Alvarez is making his 23rd start out of 23 Premier League games this season. The young Argentina forward is a phenomenal talent and injuries to Haaland and De Bruyne have played a part in this run, given he played as an attacking midfielder for the bulk of the Belgian’s absence. But now, with both of those star men back in the fold and Phil Foden thriving in central areas, the fact Guardiola is still finding a place for Alvarez speaks volumes.

40 mins before kickoff: Victory today would see City return to the top of the Premier League for the first time since November, if only for a few hours until Liverpool host Burnley later in the afternoon. You also have to go back to November to find Erling Haaland’s most recent Premier League goal (against Liverpool, incidentally). The Norway superstar has spent the majority of the interim period on the sidelines with a foot injury but drew a blank on his return to the starting XI at Brentford in midweek. Haaland scored in both fixtures against Everton last season. It feels like he’s due.

55 mins before kickoff: There was an awful lot to like about Everton’s performance in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham and Sean Dyche – who will serve a touchline ban today for collecting three yellow cards – has gone with an unchanged XI.

1 hour before kickoff: The teams are in. John Stones and Jeremy Doku start for City. De Brunye, Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish are all on the bench.

1 hr 20 mins before kickoff: Team news will be with us shortly. There’s speculation that Kevin De Bruyne isn’t in the City XI. Guardiola will obviously have one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Copenhagen in the Champions League and it will be interesting to see how he shuffles his pack.

Kevin De Bruyne

1 hr 40 mins before kickoff: In his programme notes, Pep Guardiola lavished praise upon his opposite number Sean Dyche. “Sean is someone I respect so it will be a pleasure to face him again today.” The rivalry is preposterously one-sided on paper, though. Since moving to City, Guardiola has faced Dyche 17 times across his spells with Burnley and Everton, winning 16 and drawing one.

2 hours before kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of today’s early Premier League kickoff between Manchester City and Everton.

Man City vs Everton lineups, team news

Guardiola appeared to have a fully-fit squad to choose from, with Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones all returning to action over recent weeks, although there was no Mateo Kovacic in the matchday squad.

De Bruyne reverts to the bench, no doubt with an eye on Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Copenhagen, which Stones returns to the first XI alongside Manuel Akanji, Matheus Nunes and Jeremy Doku.

Man City (4-1-4-1, right to left): Ederson (GK) — Akanji, Dias, Stones, Ake — Rodri — Foden, Nunes, Alvarez, Doku — Haaland.

Man City subs (9): Ortega (GK), Walker, Grealish, De Bruyne, Silva, Gvardiol, Bobb, Wright, Lewis.

Influential midfielder Amadou Onana is back in the Everton squad but only fit enough for a place on the bench. Sean Dyche has named an unchanged XI from the team that drew 2-2 with Tottenham last weekend.

Everton (4-4-1-1 right to left): Pickford (GK) — Godfrey, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko — Young, Gueye, Garner, McNeil — Harrison — Calvert-Lewin

Everton subs (9): Virginia (GK), Patterson, Keane, Onana, Beto, Coleman, Chermiti, Hunt, Dobbin.
