This did not put City down as they dominated possession and had more chances to score. Danilo tested Jordan Pickford with a shot from inside the box.

Raheem Sterling would however equalize in the 82nd minute with a volley to set up a nervy last eight minutes.

Morgan Schneiderlin received his marching orders when the referee harshly showed him a second yellow card for a tackle on Wayne Rooney.

City could have scored the winner when Silva’s long ball found Kevin De Bruyne in the box but midfielder Davy Klassen did well to poke the ball out for a corner.

The match ended 1 – 1 as City and Everton rack up four points from two Premier League games so far this season.
