Man City beat Everton to open up 10-point lead

Phil Foden of Manchester City during the Premier League match between Everton and Manchester City at Goodison Park on February 17, 2021 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Manchester City's relentless pursuit of a third Premier League title in four seasons continued after victory at Everton opened up a 10-point lead at the top of the table.

Phil Foden fired Pep Guardiola's leaders ahead with a right-foot shot which hit Everton substitute Seamus Coleman on its way past Jordan Pickford.

Hard-working Everton were back on level terms five minutes later, Lucas Digne's powerful attempt coming back off the post and hitting Richarlison before flying over the line.

However, a wonderful curling finish from 18 yards by Riyad Mahrez restored City's lead before Bernardo Silva beat Pickford from a similar distance in the closing stages.

With 14 games remaining, City's lead is into double figures after a 12th successive league win.

By beating Everton they also become the first team in English top-flight history to win their opening 10 matches in a calendar year.
