The Toffees also maintained their first clean sheet of the new season. Roberto Martinez will be hoping Everton can keep another clean sheet when they face the Citizens this weekend. However, the Spaniard is aware that it will be tough to stop Sergio Aguero and co from scoring.

City have been very impressive in the opening two fixtures, which include a comfortable victory over Chelsea at the Etihad in the last match. In the first two matches, Manuel Pellegrini's side sealed 3-0 victories in both matches.

The former Real Madrid will be looking for a third consecutive win of the new season against the Merseyside club, who are regaining confidence after their latest result against Southampton.

What They Say

Roberto Martinez: "It is the same with Sunday – if we rely on one or two individuals, we are going to fall short. Against City it will be the same as Southampton. We will have to be very good in everything. If you are not very strong throughout every aspect of the performance, you will find playing against Manchester City very tough."

Manuel Pellegrini: "It will be a difficult challenge - they are a difficult team who play very good football. They didn't play well against Watford but scored two goals, and in their second game they played very well and scored three goals."
