Follow live coverage as Manchester City face Everton in the Premier League today.

City are breathing hard down the necks of Arsenal as they bid to retain the title they won last term, with victory over Leeds last time out seeing them stay second, five points off the leaders. Erling Haaland maintained his outrageous scoring rate with a brace in that game and he’s well clear out in front in the Golden Boot race.

At the other end of the table, pressure grows on Frank Lampard by the day and his Everton side were booed off the pitch as they lost in the last minute to Wolves - the Toffees are one point above the bottom three.

Everton hold on to earn a vital point in a 1-1 draw with Manchester City. The hosts dominated the first half and took the lead through Haaland, who poked home from the middle of the box before Stones sent a diving header against the post just before the break. Everton managed just one shot on target in the whole game, but it was an important one as Gray broke quickly on the counter and curled a lovely effort over Ederson into the top corner. City pushed but just couldn't find the late winner they were searching for.

Guardiola will be fairly pleased with what he's seen so far but will be expecting more from his side in the second half by testing Pickford more regularly. As for Everton, apart from a few bright spells, they've struggled to get into the game. They've done fairly well at the back so far, but they need to take more risks if they want something out of this match.
