FT: Manchester City 3 Everton 1 City bounce back from Bayern defeat after coming from behind to defeat Everton 3-1 and move up to second in the Premier League.
Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for the Toffees in the 16th minute, but the lead was cancelled out moments later by Alvaro Negredo.
Sergio Aguero gave City a 2-1 lead on the stroke of half-time, before his second-half penalty rebounded off Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard to ensure the three points.
Great block by Howard in one-on-one with Nasri after Frenchman burst into the box.
Silva named man of the match by BT Sport analyst Michael Owen. Thoroughly deserved.
Naismith becomes the latest player to enter the notebook. It hasn't exactly been a dirty game.
This is the first time I've felt Everton really miss Fellaini. Ross Barkley has been eaten like a sandwich by Yaya Toure, et al in middle.— Dan Levy (@DanLevyThinks) October 5, 2013
Lukaku has been largely missing for Everton in the second half, and is replaced by Arouna Kone.
Coleman harshly added to referee's notebook for a foul.
Zabaleta booked for foul on Leighton Baines.
McCarthy does well to deny Negredo, but City striker guilty of trying to get the ball on to his right foot.
Basically, Jon Moss' last 3 games involving PL sides have shown that he's both painfully inconsistent & just isn't very good.— Alex Richards (@AA_Richards) October 5, 2013
Silva shown the yellow card.
68: Ref Moss points to the spot after Coleman appears to bring Zabaleta down inside the area. Howard is booked for dissent.
GOAL! Manchester City 3 Everton 1 Aguero puts the ball to Howard's left, USMNT No. 1 pushes the ball on to the post but rebound hits him and goes in.
Zabaleta also needs treatment for a bloodied nose, but unlikely to follow Kolarov out of the game.
Everton make double switch with Darron Gibson on for Osman, and Gerard Deulofeu on for Mirallas.
Kolarov heads off down the tunnel for stitches and is replaced by Gael Clichy. Clearly Manuel Pellegrini doesn't want to risk being down to 10 men for too long.
Kolarov - absolute boss.— Joe Krishnan (@joekrishnan) October 5, 2013
Nasty cut above the eye for Kolarov after colliding with Nastasic, but City full-back unhappy with a push by Steven Naismith which lead to the injury.
Toure makes room for a left-foot shot but fires well wide.
Hart comes out quickly to smother after Barkley's vision and pass sets up a run into the area for Mirallas.
Jagielka sticks out a foot to break up a promising City move on the edge of the area.
Another great Kolarov cross low into the six-yard box is just too far head of Aguero.
We're underway again at the Etihad.
HT Manchester City 2 Everton 1 Sergio Aguero scored in the final minute of the first period to give City a half-time lead. Romelu Lukaku had given Everton the lead, but seconds later, Alvaro Negredo equalised.
James Milner receives yellow card for foul on James McCarthy after the half-time whistle.
Phil Jagielka denies Aguero a chance on goal with excellent tackle on the edge of the area.
Aguero scores. That means City won't lose, and probably won't draw. City have drawn one and lost none of the games in which he's scored.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonMEN) October 5, 2013
GOAL! Man City 2 Everton 1 Aguero 45. Silva slides the ball beyond Sylvain Distin into the channel for Aguero to fire beyond Howard.
