Everton midfielder Andre Gomes: Barcelona experience made me a man

Crystal Palace enjoyed their first victory in 14 Premier League games without Wilfried Zaha, having lost their previous 13 games without the forward since they beat Sunderland 3-2 in September 2016.

Manager Pep Guardiola said of Aguero: "He did the last training session with the team".

Raheem Sterling and the returning Kevin De Bruyne were both brought on by Pep Guardiola in the second half, with Foden stripped and ready to enter the fray for a brief cameo late on.

"In January, we are not going to sign anyone", he said.

The Belgian has been restricted to just three substitute appearances in the Premier League and not featured at all since the first week of November.

On De Bruyne, Guardiola added: "The same as Sergio, he trained quite well, no pain".

"If David Silva plays, Bernardo Silva, what is the big difference?"

Everton, however, have proved hard opposition for Guardiola since he took charge at City. Davies broke onto the scene in January 2017 after scoring a sensational goal at Goodison Park against the Cityzens.

Oklahoma and Ohio State both have 2018 Heisman Trophy finalists in quarterbacks Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins , respectively. Murray leads the country in total offense (4,945 yards), points responsible for (306) and passing efficiency (205.7).

Everton are now seventh in the table after making a promising start under new manager Marco Silva.

Guardiola said the pressure of needing to win nearly every game was comparable to his experience at Barca.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin briefly gave Everton hope, but Raheem Sterling came off the bench to make the game safe with his first touch as City moved two points ahead of Liverpool, who host Manchester United on Sunday.

"When you have good players in your squad that means other clubs are looking to them as well".

With temperatures approaching freezing in Manchester, City were almost caught cold by a rare Everton break early on when Richarlison fired the first big chance of the game over from Lucas Digne's cross.

Signings from high profile clubs like Barcelona and Chelsea will help Everton to progress further than they have done over the last decade.

The group stage of the Champions League have just been concluded and all eyes are now on who plays who in the round 16. The people yesterday were so exhausted. We valued his performance, he did the same today as he's played in the last few games, but he was in a better situation to score'.
