That's now 11 Premier League wins on the bounce for City as they move four points clear of Arsenal, with the Gunners due to kick off against Brighton shortly. Now their attention turns to the Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid. Everton stay just one point clear of the drop zone, and they travel to Wolves next weekend.

Gundogan stars as Manchester City east past Everton 3-0. They made a pretty poor start to the game but turned things around with two goals in two minutes towards the end of the first half. Gundogan got the first with an audacious flick with his back to goal before then setting up Haaland for a thumping header moments later. It was then wrapped up early in the second half, with the German scoring a wonderful free-kick by curling it into the top corner. Tarkowski did smack a header off the bar later on, but Everton couldn't find a response.

Patterson gets a late burst of energy as he rushes forward to dispossess Akanji. He tries to get it out of his feet to curl in a cross but quickly loses out to the City man.

City are in no hurry to get upfield at all now, with their defenders comfortably knocking it around between then as the board goes up to show there will be four additional minutes.

Gray manages to win a corner, and Everton take is short. It takes them a while to get it into the box, though Patterson swings it deep into Tarkowski, but he can't direct his header on target.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:46

City play themselves out of trouble well on the edge of their own box and Rodri has so much space in midfield. He tries to switch it out to Grealish, but his heavy pass flies straight of play.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:45

Everton are keeping possession well when they win it back, but they're in no hurry to get upfield. They're happy to keep knocking it between their defenders.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:43

Laporte goes for the more direct route again, going long down the right for Silva to chase. McNeil tracks him all the way though and safely heads it back to Pickford.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:41

And Haaland is also going off. That means Alvarez will move into the centre-forward role, with Grealish brought on to play down the left.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:41

City's first change of the game is a double one. Gundogan won't have the chance to go for a hat-trick as Silva is brought on for him.

McNeil gets a yard on Walker to swing a great cross into the middle of the box. Dias misses it and it bounces at Onana's feet, but he can't sort out his feet quick enough to have a shot.

15:38

Fourth change for Everton now, and Garner goes straight down the tunnel as he's replaced by Gray.

15:38

Mahrez curls another cross in and Pickford is caught in no man's land as Coady's header flicks it towards the far post. Haaland stands his ground and the keeper crashes into him, but the penalty that City are asking for isn't given.

This time, Gundogan does play it forward, picking out Akanji's surging run down the left. The defender curls it into the box first time, but it's over everyone in the middle and out for a throw on the far side.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:34

As soon as Gundogan gets the ball, Foden and Haaland both dart in behind Everton's defence. The City captain doesn't take either option though, instead choosing to work it back to his keeper.

After weathering another spell of pressure from Everton, City are back to keeping possession. The hosts are keeping their shape well though and stopping it from going into their box.

15:29

OFF THE BAR! McNeil's first corner is swung in deep and Ederson gets his punch all wrong as he puts it out for another on the opposite side. This one is whipped into the middle and Tarkowski smacks a header against the crossbar.

This is the second time that Gundogan has been involved in three goals in a Premier League match, also scoring twice and assisting once against West Brom in October 2016.

15:24

Patterson is starting to get a lot of joy down the right in his new wing-back role. He gets the better of Akanji as he curls another low cross in, but again, Maupay doesn't get to it.

GREAT CHANCE! City break quickly on the counter, and Foden has acres of space to run into down the left. He picks out Haaland at the far post and he goes for a scissor kick, but it's off target and Coady calmly clears it.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:22

Garner swings Everton's latest corner into the box and Mina beats Ederson to it as he nods it into the middle. Maupay goes for an overhead kick, with some fans and players claiming handball, but nothing's given.

Foden has stayed down holding his knee and it looks like he went down awkwardly following the challenge. He gets back to his feet after treatment, and he'll be able to carry on.

Everton vs Manchester City

15:11

Foden is getting away from Garner, who sticks out a leg to trip him and stop him from getting into the box. He's shown the first booking of the game.

City dominated possession, but until the two goals, had barely managed to get the ball into the box or test Everton. Despite having the lead, Guardiola will want an improvement in the performance to put this game to bed. It's a difficult one for Dyche - Everton were brilliant defensively barring that two-minute lapse and he'll want them to put it behind them quickly to get back into it.

Two goals in two minutes give City a 2-0 lead over Everton at the break. For most of the half, City struggled to find their rhythm, but everything started to come together in the 37th minute. Gundogan pulled off a brilliant piece of individual skill, flicking the ball past Pickford with his back to goal before setting up Haaland for a thumping header just moments later. At the other end, Holgate missed a glorious opportunity from very close range.

It's a poor attempt at a clearance from McNeil, and Mahrez latches onto it before curling it back into the far post. Akanji nods it down for Gundogan, but he can't sort his feet out in time to have a shot from close range.

Everton vs Manchester City

14:19

As City are waiting to take a throw-in, Mina goes to ground in the box. He had his arms around Laporte, who then slapped the Colombian's hands away. The referee has a word with both, and then we're able to carry on.
