Everton have shown the rest of the premier league side how to stop Guardiola’s Man City side from their passing game.
Everton’s youthful exhibition and determination to work with or without the ball and efficiency of Davies who was superb and immaculate with every of his touch today is revelation for the Evertonians.
In 36th minute, Davies intercepted Gael Clichy clearance down the half field and released Mirallas who cut the ball back for Lukaku to fire into the bottom right corner.
Manchester City had an evening to forget at Merseyside. They were awful except for De Bruyne who showed quality of a great player he is. Yaya Toure was overrun and overwhelmed in the midfield by Davies.
Schneiderlin made his debut today when he came on 65th minute for Mirallas and went on to cement Everton midfield. In the 79th minute, Yaya Toure couldn’t track the run of Davies who put the citizens to sword with curled chip above Bravo.
Another debutant Ademola Lookman who replaced Lukaku in the 90th minute completed the Manchester City humiliation in the 94th minute when his shot passed through the legs of Bravo who was busy today picking the ball out from his post.
