Man City v Everton LIVE: Premier League score and latest updates as Haaland starts and De Bruyne benched

Pep Guardiola Challenges Real Madrid To Make An Offer On Erling Haaland Original Video M247117

Man City eye top spot in the Premier League when they take on Everton in the Saturday lunchtime fixture.

Pep Guardiola has warned his side to be ready for the Toffees, who fought back to snatch a point against Tottenham last week. Phil Foden produced a scintillating hat-trick on Monday as City eased past Brentford to send a message to title rivals Liverpool and Arsenal.

Everton took a point away from the Etihad last season, thanks to a Demarai Gray strike, but any result here will be a bonus in their battle to beat the drop.

Man City 0-0 Everton

8 min: A pause in play after a clash in the City box between Ederson and Everton defender Ben Godfrey. Godfrey went into the challenge fully committed and the City keeper seems to be injured.

Man City 0-0 Everton

5 min: City are patiently probing, and Everton are defending with occasional shows of aggression. This time it’s Tarkowski who clatters through the back of Alvarez on the halfway line, conceding a foul. A moment later Everton pinch the ball and switch it to the left for McNeil, who crosses, and City clear. Brighter by Everton, that.

Man City 0-0 Everton

2 min: There’s the first sign of Jeremy Doku’s electric pace, as he dribbles into the Everton box and forces a corner from a nothing position. The corner is well defended by Everton, but just how early they are on the back foot here is pretty ominious for the rest of their afternoon.

Pep Guardiola warns Man City ‘to be ready’ for lunchtime clash with Everton

The champions can take over at the summit – for a few hours at least – if they beat the Toffees in their Saturday lunchtime encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

Yet after having difficulties against the Merseysiders in the past – Everton claimed a 1-1 draw in Manchester last season – the City manager is taking nothing for granted.

Premier League managers respond to sin-bin proposals: ‘Not a fantastic idea’

More from the big story from Friday and sin bins:

Football’s lawmakers are determined to crack down on dissent towards referees by giving officials the power to send players to the technical area for 10 minutes – mirroring similar protocols that are used in rugby union and other sports.

Ange Postecoglou warns sin bins would ‘destroy’ football

Tottenham head coach Ange Postecoglou has warned any proposal to introduce blue cards and sin bins will destroy football.

It was revealed on Thursday that a trial could commence soon where a blue card would be shown for dissent and professional fouls where the offenders would be sin binned for 10 minutes.

However, Postecoglou was unequivocal in his belief it would be a wrong move.
