Everton 1-3 Man City LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and reaction as leaders go 10 points clear

While the Champions League last-16 continued on Wednesday night, there was also English top-flight action to focus on with two rescheduled matches during this most hectic of seasons.

We began at Turf Moor, where relegation battlers Fulham threw away a second-half lead in their 10th draw of the season against Burnley.

Ola Aina gave the visitors the lead shortly after the interval, but Burnley hit back swiftly through Ashley Barnes to leave Scott Parker’s side still six points adrift of safety with a tough run of fixtures coming up.

The main event of the evening came at Goodison Park, where dominant Manchester City sealed a record-extending 17th successive win across all competitions against Everton.

City now sit 10 points clear at the summit after fine second-half goals from Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva secured yet another victory after Richarlison had cancelled out Phil Foden’s deflected opener.

It’s another great team move that culminates in a terrific pass from Mahrez into Jesus, who quickly finds Bernardo.
