Foden strikes late as Manchester City beat Frank Lampard Everton

Phil Foden’s late strike was all Manchester City needed to beat Frank Lampard’s Everton during their Premier League game at Goodison Park on Saturday evening.

With a lucky win over determined Everton, Pep Guardiola’s side returned back to winning ways.

At halftime, the score was tied, and the Toffees had less possession than City, but appeared quick on the counterattack with Richarlison, Gordon, and Iwobi.

Despite dominating the game, City was unable to score.

Foden then scored the game-winning goal, which was extremely fortunate, but the champions will undoubtedly believe they deserved it following a superb second-half display.

Everton performed enough to win a point, but they were heavily punished for one blunder, for which they will believe they should have received at least one penalty as well.

City’s Premier League advantage has reverted to six points, which Liverpool will be unable to decrease this week ahead of their EFL Cup final.

The league leaders must find a way to win even when they aren’t at their best, which Guardiola’s team achieved admirably.

Everton are still in 17th place, one point ahead of Burnley, and have a few games in hand on the clubs above them, but there’s no doubt they’re fighting for their lives.
