Late goals from Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling saw Manchester City edge Everton 3-1 in the Premier League on Saturday.

David Silva became the fastest player to reach 200 Premier League wins as City continue their march.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s header from the line meant both teams head into the break level at 1-1 after Gabriel Jesus’ header gave the visitors a 24th-minute lead.

Kevin De Bruyne’s cross at the far post was met by Jesus, who made no mistake to head it past Jordan Pickford.

The Evertonians were quick to respond as Dominic Calvert-Lewin made it 1-1, 9 minutes later. The England international headed home from the line following a Seamus Coleman cross.

Mahrez scored from a freekick, 20 minutes from time to give City a 2-1 lead.

Yerry Mina towering header was parried away by Ederson before Calvert-Lewin missed from the follow-up.

Raheem Sterling added another one, six minutes before regulation time, to put the game in bed.
