Manchester City kept pace with leaders Chelsea, overtaking Liverpool with a 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday.
The Citizens went through Raheem Sterling moments before the break whistle (44th) on the victorious road. Rodri (55th) and Bernardo Silva (86th) ensured the safe success of the team of successful coach Pep Guardiola in the second round.
By far the highlight of the afternoon was Rodri’s 2-0 victory. The Spain international unleashed an unsuccessful release shot from the backcourt just 22 yards in front of goal on the left turn.
With 26 points, City are three points behind Chelsea (29) and one point ahead of Liverpool. Jürgen Klopp’s side had already won 4-0 in the opener against Arsenal on Saturday night.
In the evening, Tottenham can catch up with the international ranks with a victory over Leeds and overtake Manchester United. The Red Devils embarrassed relegation candidate Watford with 1: 4 on Saturday, then sacked coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
