LIVERPOOL: Manchester City climbed back into the Premier League’s top four as second-half goals by Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez and Bernardo Silva sealed a comeback 3-1 victory at Everton on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola’s newly-crowned Fifa World Club champions had lost ground in the title race after a run of only one win in six league games, but they returned to domestic action in style.
Everton took the lead against the run of play through Jack Harrison’s close-range finish in the 29th minute.
But Foden drilled in a superb low shot after 53 minutes and Alvarez converted a penalty after a handball by Amadou Onana.
Silva wrapped up the points four minutes from time with a sublime finish after a mistake by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford.
Champions City moved above Tottenham Hotspur into fourth place with 37 points from 18 games, five behind leaders Liverpool having played a game less.
