As it happened: Manchester City v Everton

05 October 2013, 12:36

16:40 City jumped to second spot after their win, while Everton lose their first game of the seaon. 


16:38 Nasri had a golden opportunity to score in stoppage time, but Tim Howard blocked his shot and the final whistel goes!

16:37 Pellegrini must feel a lot better after feeling the heat in the last week. Joe Hart also had an improved performance. However, he coud have done better to keep out Lukaku's goal earlier on. 

16:35 The official attendance figure is 47,000 at the Etihad. 

16:34 89th min We're into the final minute at the Etihad, City still have their two-goal lead. 4 minutes of stoppage time have been indicated. 

16:31 86th min Naismith brings down Toure for yet another yellow card, the eighth of the match. 

16:30 Everton surely can't selvage their unbeaten streak now, under 5 minutes left and they need to score two goals with City attacking their heels. 

16:28 Toure and Nasri and Fernandinho are all probing the Everton box, despite good ball work they can't penetrate into the six-yard box. 

16:27 Roman Lukaku is replaced by Koune for Everton with just under 8 minutes remaining in normal time

16:25 Coleman receives the seventh yellow card of the afternoon after a challenge on Silva. He might feel hard done by after that decision. 

16:23 Pelligrini is taken off two-goal hero Sergio Aguero, his replacement is Samir Nasri, who had a terrible time against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

16:22 Zabaleta lunges into Leighton Baines and recieves a yellow card. It's a terribly timed challenge from the player sporting a piece of bloodied cotton wool in his nostril. 

16:19 15 minutes to go at the Etihad, and it doesn't look like City will be relinquishing their lead.


          Everton 1


16:13 City get a penalty awarded after Zabaleta who was brought down in the box. Sergio Aguero steps up and slots home with the help of Tim Howard's head. 
16:10  The second period hasn't featured as much end-to-end action as the first half. City have almost set-up camp in Everton's half.

16:09 A double change by Everton. Osman and Mirallas are replaced by Gibson and Deulofeu.

16:05 The match has just passed the hour mark , with City keeping their 2-1 lead intact. 

16:02 It's in fact Kolarov that took the hit to his brow and he has been replaced by Gael Clichy with 59 minutes gone.  

15:59 We are 10 minutes into the second half, and City have definitely started the second period as the better team. Negredo was pushed into Nastasjic by Naismith. Negredo is now nursing a bloody wound just above his left eyebrow. 

15:57 Naismith plunders down the right flank for Everton, but the attack is bundled away as Mirallas misplaces his pas

15:53 Silva is starting to stamp his authority on the match, with good interplay with Toure. The slickness of passing is lovely to behold, and Everton are struggling to win back the ball in the middle of the park. 

15:52 Silva and Kolarov combine well down the left wing, with the ball whipped in. But it's hastily cleared by the defence of Everton, who are being put under early pressure.

15:50 The second half gets underway, Everton will need to take a more gung-ho approach and maintain possession if they want to win. 

HALF TIME: Manchester City 2
                     Everton 1

15:32 Aguero is in again, but is thankfully for Everton fans thwarted by an outstretched leg of Baines.

15:30 That goal came on the stroke of half-time , cue the football cliche's. City had been probing well and took a deserved lead. But Everton aren't out of it yet.


15:26 Aguero has been a menace to the Everton back four this afternoon. But he will have to take his chances if City are to beat a resolute Everton side.

15:23 Aguero has a golden chance to put his team ahead, but he muddled the change of direction and watched the ball run away from him.

15:22 38 minutes of the match gone so quickly, it's really been entertaining. 

15:20 The ball gets whipped in from the left into the Everton box, but there is no City player within 50 km's of it! Pellegrini must be fuming on the sidelines.

15:18 City captain, Vincent Kompany is being replaced by Nastajic . Kompany had been struggling with a knee injury the past 15 minutes.

15:17 Everton hit City on the break again, this time via Mirallas who has been a live-wire in the first half an hour. But he is deemed off-side by the linesman.

15:16 McCarthy closes down Aguero before he can do damage on the right flank. 

15:10 A terrific training-ground inspired free-kick let Aguero free, but he guided the ball past Howard's left hand post. 

15:10 Another free-kick as Ageuro , who hasn't featured much in the game, is brought down.

15:07 Vincent Kompany gets the first caution of the game, as he clattered into Lukaku.

15:05 Everton are not lying down , Negredo on the attack but the geriatric Sylvain Distin bustled the ball out for a corner

15:02 GOAL!!! 1-1 City reply within a minute! Alvaro Negredo, the summer recruit from Sevilla replied straight after Everton took the lead.
15:00 GOAL!!! 1-0 to Everton Lukaku got the opener sliding the ball past Joe Hart who could have done better!

14:58 Immediately at the other end, City come through with a blazing attack that results in some ping-ponging in Evertons box, and finally Howard gathers. 

14:57 Baines whips in a ball from the left, but it's dealt well with my Kompany. 

14:56 Ten minutes in and it's been end-to-end stuff. Finally a breather as Kompany starts an attack from the back. Resulting in a corner.

14:55 The match has started with a good amount of tempo from both teams, a lot hangs on the game.

14:52 Kolarov steps up and whips his left-foot around the ball , some of the City supporters think it's in, but unfortunately for them it's side-netting.

14:51 Cit have a free-kick on the edge of the Everton box.

14:49 Yaya Toure shoots!!!! And the ball is scooped up by Howard

14:47 Mirallas and Lukaku are linking well in the first two minutes, probing the City defence.

14:45 Kick-off and Everton immediately head to Joe Hart's goal.

- The teams are making their way onto the pitch. The Etihad is looking forward to a good clash.
