Manchester City return to the top of premier league

 

Goals from   Gabriel Jesus  and Aymeric Laporte helped the reigning champions  manchester city  a victory  over everton which saw them move back up to the top of the table on goal difference.

City were seven points behind Liverpool on January 19 but Wednesday’s win sees they move level with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds, while the defending champions taking over at the top of the table  due to goal difference Laporte’s second league goal of the season put City ahead in the final moments of the first half, .But The visitors wasted a number of chances to extend their lead before Gabriel Jesus wrapped things up in stoppage time, putting Everton boss Marco Silva on pressure as  struggling Everton face a seventh defeat in their last 10 league matches.. in the 47th minutes of the meeting between the blues and the toffees David Silva takes the free-kick with so much spin and pace on it that Laporte just has to let it hit him and fly into the far corner. Giving the visitors deserved lead and in the second half stoppage time Manchester City doubled their lead as De Bruyne rolls the ball into Jesus who has timed his run perfectly to stay onside. But Pickford dives at his feet and saves his initial shot, but it spins up and back into the Brazilian’s path, and his header bounces over the line.

For the first time in two months, the champions are on top of the Premier League but Jurgen Klopp’s men still have a game in hand, of course,  which comes at Old Trafford, where they have not won in five years.
