      Hello and welcome to live coverage of Manchester City and Everton, as two of the league's high fliers meet at the Etihad. Pep Guardiola's men will want to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Spurs last time out, while the Toffees are on a three-game run without a win in the Premier League.

    • 3'
      De Bruyne fizzes in a low cross from the right-hand side, but Williams scrambles a close-range clearance away from the danger zone. Sane has already looked bright down the right-hand side, and will be looking to impress on his first Premier League start.
    • 5'
      Man City are dominating possession from the off, with Sane found out on the right again.

    • 9'
      Otamendi gives away a free-kick in a dangerous area, which gives Lukaku a chance to test Bravo for the first time today. The Belgium international lines up a shot, but bends the ball high and wide of the target, picking out the stands rather than the back of the net.
    • 11'

    • 28'
      Sane uses his pace to hurtle down the right flank, with Iheanacho and Silva then combining to give De Bruyne a chance to shoot. The former Chelsea midfielder rattles an effort straight at Oviedo's chest. That might have winded the Costa Rica international a bit!
    • 30'
      There is a stoppage in play, as Sterling goes down heavily, with the physios called on following a horrible high tackle from Coleman. The Republic of Ireland international flew in, planting his studs onto the ankle of his opponent. Terrible challenge.
    • 32'
      Sane continues to be the main outlet for this Man City side, with Deulofeu being asked to track right back to help out his left-back. Everton's breaks have become much more irregular, with Koeman probably happy to try and close out this half without conceding.
    • 34'

    • 40'

    • 53'
      Iheanacho is picked out by a great cross from the left-hand side by Silva, but the Nigerian striker is only able to flick an improvised finish straight at Stekelenburg! Man City go close again, but the opening goal of the contest is proving elusive.
    • 55'
      Bolasie races forward at pace and tries to slot a through-ball into Lukaku's path, but the pass is too heavy and Bravo collects. Sterling is found on the right-hand side, but a flicked header from Silva only finds the Everton goalkeeper.

    • 61'
      Gundogan drives into space on the edge of the penalty area, before exchanging a one-two with Silva, but the former can't take the ball back under his spell. Aguero then tees up Fernandinho on the periphery of the box, but a cross from the Brazilian is blocked.
    • 62'
      Sterling shows an unbelievable turn of pace to get in behind Oviedo and drive into the box, but a cross from the Englishman is then denied by some good defending from Jagielka. If Everton push on too much, Man City are able to cause plenty of problems in behind.

    • 74'
      De Bruyne is found down the left-hand side, but his eventual cross in from out wide is caught easily by Stekelenburg. Man City only have 20 minutes to find a winner, so they can't afford to be wasteful in front of goal.

    • 80'
      De Bruyne is fouled by Barry, meaning that Man City have another chance to whip a ball into a box loaded with bodies. This time, however, with both coaches patrolling their technical areas, the pressure is building. Everton clear with ease via Jagielka.
    • 81'
      Coleman picks up the first booking of the evening.
