Everton vs Manchester City Premier League Result December 2023

Manchester City revitalized their pursuit of the Premier League title by staging a comeback to secure a crucial victory against Everton at Goodison Park.

Despite winning the Club World Cup in Saudi Arabia on Friday by defeating Fluminense, City found themselves trailing by eight points in the Premier League title race upon their return. 

This match marked a significant challenge for Pep Guardiola's team, especially considering their recent struggle in the league, having secured only one win in their last six outings.

The initial half saw Jack Harrison surprising the visitors by giving Everton, led by Sean Dyche, a lead. However, Phil Foden turned the tide with a remarkable equalizer in the second half. The momentum continued as Julian Alvarez converted a penalty awarded for a handball by Amadou Onana, who raised his arms to block Nathan Ake's goal-bound shot.

City capitalized on an error by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford when Bernardo Silva scored, securing City's fourth-place position ahead of their upcoming match against Sheffield United.
