Well that brings an end to our coverage of this Premier League. We're back later in the week with a Merseyside double-header as Liverpool host Hoffenheim and Everton are back in action at Hajduk Split in two European qualifiers.

But until then, it's goodnight.


Full-time: Manchester City 1-1 Everton

A very decent and dramatic Premier League game, one which both could have won. Wayne Rooney's goal was cancelled out by Raheem Sterling's thunderous effort either side of red cards for Kyle Walker and Morgan Schneiderlin. Pep Guardiola and Ronald Koeman will reflect upon a match either team could have taken all three points from, yet neither did.


RED CARD: Morgan Schneiderlin (Everton)

10 vs 10 for the final two minutes as Schneiderlin is off for a second booking, sliding in, but getting the ball, in a tackle with Aguero who goes down in a heap and convinces referee Madley into showing another caution.


GOAL! Manchester City 1-1 Everton (Raheem Sterling)

Game on with seven minutes to go. Danilo's cross is only cleared as far as the penalty area by Holgate and Sterling crashes the ball into the corner. The ex-Liverpool man scores his first goal against Everton and now they will go searching for a second.


End-to-end stuff this. Pickford keeps out Danilo's shot, getting down low to turn it away from danger. Everton counter, and Kompany is forced to foul Calvert-Lewin to stop him breaking clear and is booked.


City's players want Dominic Calvert-Lewin reprimanded when a stray arm connects with Otamendi. The referee takes no action, and rightly so.


Raheem Sterling should be drawing City level as he receives Aguero's lay-off but lashes high over the bar from 12 yards.

Still 15 minutes left.


Chance for City. Aguero wriggles away from three Everton defender and when De Bruyne tees it up, substitute Bernardo Silva drags his volley wide.


City pushing hard to get this equaliser but Everton looking threatening when they get on the ball. Raheem Sterling seeing a lot of it, but it would be fair to say he is being a little wasteful.

Raheem Sterling on for City. David O'Leary and Sir Alex Ferguson are having a heated debate about the incident of the half. Can't imagine many people think he should have gone, perhaps except Dominic Calvert-Lewin.


So much to discuss after that first half. Should City be out of sight? Should Kyle Walker be off the field? Can might Dominic Calvert-Lewin be banned for diving?


Half time: Manchester City 0-1 Everton

Goodness. Quite a half. City have dominated but Everton lead and have a numerical advantage. Wayne Rooney put them ahead against the run of play, his 200th in the Premier League, before Kyle Walker was sent off for a soft collision with Dominic Calvert-Lewin.


RED CARD: Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Drama at the Etihad. City down to 10 men as Kyle Walker, who was booked moments ago is sent off for a second booking as he nudges into Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The England man does look over his shoulder at the Everton forward but he makes a meal of the conduct and the referee Bobby Madley is convinced to show a second caution. This game has been turned around.

City's frustration boils over as Kyle Walker is booked for a late challenge.


GOAL! Manchester City 0-1 Everton (Wayne Rooney)

Quite extraordinary. Everton survive City striking the post and go down the other end to take the lead. Calvert-Lewin and Holgate combine and when the full-back turns inside he picks out Rooney who side-foots home for his 200th Premier League, his second in as many top flight games since returning to the Toffees and of course at the home of the rivals of his former club Manchester United. All the subtext.


OFF THE POST! David Silva strikes the up-right as Aguero picks him out. Everton survive, again.


Sergio Aguero butchers City's best chance of the game as De Bruyne plays him in but he neither shoots not tries to find his teammate and the chance is gone and Jagielka clears.


Man City edging close to the goal which would give them the lead. Pickford pushes away Fernandinho's effort which Aguero gets to first. The Argentine clips the ball over the onrushing 'keeper and it needs Jagielka to head behind his own goal.


Tom Davies booked for diving as he tries to buy a foul from the referee. He runs straight into Otamendi and the officials gets it spot on.
