The Everton goalkeeper denied Foden and Joao Cancelo in quick succession before a fantastic double save from Kevin De Bruyne’s low shot and Bernardo Silva’s follow-up.

But with the match heading towards a stalemate, Foden took advantage of Michael Keane’s slip to score from close range.

Richarlison had a chance to equalise but could not beat Ederson as City extended their lead to six points ahead of next weekend’s Manchester derby. Second-placed Liverpool have a match in hand.

A fifth defeat in seven leaves Everton a point and a place above the relegation zone.

Everton coach Frank Lampard said ,”It’s a tough one to take, but we should take confidence in the performance because it was great.”

After the Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”I have to admit, really important [to get the win].

The second half was much better for the consequences of the first half. We moved them and attacked better.

Goodison Park for us is always so difficult. (It was a) good victory, another step.

In general, we controlled in the second half, we had chances, not a lot because it was not possible but the second was half much, much better.”
