Man City returns to top of PL following 3-2 win over Everton

Johannesburg, May 4: Manchester City has returned to the top of the Premier League table for the first time since January following a 3-2 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

City is now six points from a second title in three seasons and both City and Everton have 80 points with Chelsea, who can go top with a win over Norwich City on Sunday, on 78 with two to play.

According to Sport24, despite an early Ross Barkley goal for the home side, Edin Dzeko’s double put City in charge of the game after Sergio Aguero fashioned an equalizer and although Romelu Lukaku gave fifth-placed Everton hope with a 65th-minute effort but City hung on to move above Liverpool with a far superior goal difference and two games left.

Liverpool visit Crystal Palace in their penultimate game on Monday before finishing at home to Newcastle United while City host Aston Villa on Wednesday and West Ham United next Sunday, the report added. (ANI)
