MANCHESTER: Manchester City have lost momentum in their bid to catch up premier league leaders Arsenal as they were held to a 1-1 draw by wrestlers Everton in their last game of the year.
Erling Haaland got off to a good start for Pep Guardiola’s men when he latched on to Riyad Mahrez’s pass to score his 21st league goal of the season.
After a number of saves early in the second half, including one taking over six minutes when the assistant referee’s communications headset was repaired, Demarai Gray equalized for the visitors.
The Everton winger pounced down the left flank in a rare counterattack before cutting inside and unleashing a curling effort from the edge of the box that left City keeper Ederson battered.
The result left second-placed City four points behind Arsenal after playing one game more, while Everton are 16th on 15 points. They are two points above the relegation zone.
