HALF TIME: Everton 0-0 Manchester City
City have been completely dominant in terms of possession and territory. But it’s Everton who have had an effort cleared off the line. City’s quadruple quest is still alive, but so are Everton’s dreams of a first trophy since 1995.
There will be one added minute.
Digne nearly catches City napping. He whips to the near post, where Mina flashes a header towards the top left. Zinchenko is forced to head off the line, Steffen beaten all ends up. City deal with the next corner with much more authority.
Richarlison barges his way into the City box on the right, his hard work earning a corner. Digne doesn’t rush over to take it. A nice calm amble.
Jesus works his way down the right and wins a free kick off Gomes. It’s taken quickly, Gundogan swinging it in. One of the members of Everton’s back seven heads it clear. City are struggling to penetrate this thin blue line.
Sterling slips Foden into space down the left. Foden wins a corner off Mina. He takes himself. Everton clear their lines. For all their dominance, City have achieved surprisingly little in the final third.
