Brilliant goals from Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva and one from Phil Foden gave City their 17th – ! – straight win, sending them 10 points clear at the top of the league.
Everton made them work for it but were well-beaten in the end and stay seventh.
City had most of the ball in an enjoyable first half and looked sharp, but they struggled to create – partly because Everton defended well while intimating a threat on the counter.
On 32 minutes, the away side took the lead, Foden driving home off Seamus Coleman, but Everton then committed men forward and quickly forced an equaliser, Lucas Digne’s shot hitting the post and rebounding onto Richarlison, who inadvertently drew his team level.
Though City didn’t play that well, that they would at some point produce something to win the game seemed inevitable – and was.

First, on 63 minutes, Mahrez bent a terrific curler into far corner, then on 77 minutes Bernardo completed a fine move. City winning the league now also seems inevitable.
