Haaland's double downs Everton as Man City make it 10 wins in a row

Erling Haaland's late double sent Manchester City temporarily top of the Premier League as they beat Everton 2-0 to extend their winning run to 10 games in all competitions

The striker rifled home the opening goal with City's first shot on target following a corner in the 71st minute before adding a breakaway second from substitute Kevin De Bruyne's pass.

Everton had defended doggedly before that, despite Sean Dyche's absence from the dugout as he served a touchline ban, but City's quality told as top scorer Haaland found the net in the Premier League for the first time since November, taking his tally to 16.

The victory briefly put Pep Guardiola's side a point ahead of Liverpool prior to their victory over Burnley, and ensures Everton, deducted 10 points earlier this season, remain in trouble in 18th place and without a win in seven Premier League games.
