Manchester City fought back strongly in the second half and won 3-1 against Everton at Goodison Park. Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez, and Bernardo Silva scored for Man City, moving them into the top four. They are now five points behind leaders Liverpool, with a match in hand.

Bernardo Silva secured the win by scoring in the 86th minute after taking advantage of a mistake by Pickford. Although Foden hit the post with a superb shot in stoppage time, City claimed victory, securing fourth place with 37 points. Everton remain in 17th position with 16 points, just one point above Luton Town.
