Manchester City are running away with the Premier League title as a 3-1 victory at Everton created a ten-point lead at the top of the table.
Pep Guardiola’s men won for the 17th match in a row, despite being pegged back by Richarlison, as goals from Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva left Manchester United two-figures behind them in second.
It’s the first time in top-flight history that an English team has won all ten of their opening matches in a calendar year as their incredible 2021 continues.
While there was a bit of fortune about Foden and Richarlison’s first-half goals, Mahrez’s curling effort was unstoppable before Silva rounded off a fabulous team move.
Describing the last goal for talkSPORT, Sunderland legend Micky Gray said: “It’s just brilliant, again fantastic play from City, looking between the lines and finding the spaces.
“Should Jordan Pickford have saved it? There will be question marks over that – but let’s talk about the football City are playing.
“It’s crisp, they just fire it around. When it goes into Silva, it’s absolutely fantastic.”
