3 talking points as Manchester City hit five past Everton

Manchester City treated the fans at Etihad Stadium to one of their best performances of the campaign, with Everton the unlucky opponent.

Manchester City lifted the Premier League trophy in front of 10,000 fans at the Etihad Stadium after a 5-0 triumph against Everton. A goal-fest was underway within the first 15 minutes of kick-off as the champions went two goals up, thanks to Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus, who scored within three minutes of one another.

Phil Foden tripled the side’s lead in the second half, before Sergio Aguero came on for his last dance in the Premier League. The Argentina international struck twice to complete a thrashing and bow out of English football in memorable fashion. The Toffees meanwhile finished their season in 10th place, despite a good start to the season.

Here is a look at the three talking points from the match.

Manchester City have been in great form recently, barring a slip up against Brighton some days ago. To be fair on the Sky Blues, they had played a large part of the match against Seagulls with a man down. Recent form renders next week’s European Cup final City’s to lose, more so, after thumping one of the league’s best sides on Sunday.

As if the Mancunian side’s form wasn’t peaked enough, Chelsea are enduring their worst run since Thomas Tuchel took over. The Blues have lost three of their last four fixtures and hence, they will definitely be second favourites heading into the match in Porto despite getting the better of the Citizens twice during April, once each in the league and FA Cup.
