Manchester City had been level points with Chelsea after the New Year. With Chelsea winning their game, it was crucial that Man City won against Everton to stay with them. To their disappointment, they were not able to do so.
The goals came quite late in the game. Fernandinho gave City the lead in the 74th minute! From this goal, you would have expected a win.
Everton was supposed to be weakened, but perhaps the goal gave them the wake-up call they needed! Naismith netted the equaliser just four minutes later!
Aguero returned from injury but it seems as if he needs a bit of time to readjust. Manchester City are second and have dropped two points behind the leaders. They’re back to a more familiar ground: catch up.
