Everton locked horns with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium earlier today as they looked to grind out a result on their travels. The Toffees made a solid start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the 24th minute when Erling Haaland got his name on the scoresheet. Frank Lampard’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

Demarai Gray scored a brilliant goal to equalise for Everton in the 64th minute as the contest finished with a 1-1 scoreline.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player fared during the match against Man City.

GK: Jordan Pickford – 7/10

The English keeper made a couple of decent saves at the back but was a bit untidy with his passing.

RB: Nathan Patterson – 6/10

He worked hard defensively but lacked quality in the final third.

CB: Ben Godfrey – 6.5/10

Godfrey made two important defensive contributions and did well to restrict the opposition to just one goal.

CB: Conor Coady – 6/10

He made a couple of crucial clearances at the back and was tidy with his passing.

CB: James Tarkowski – 7/10

Tarkowski made numerous important clearances at the back and was a dominant presence in the air.

LB: Vitaliy Mykolenko – 6.5/10

He made a lot of crucial clearances when defending inside his half but gave away the ball cheaply at times.

RM: Alex Iwobi – 6.5/10

Iwobi worked hard to help his teammates out at the back when needed and had a quiet game in the final third.

CM: Amadou Onana – 6.5/10

He anchored the midfield with conviction and kept the opposition attackers frustrated for most of the game.

CM: Idrissa Gueye – 7/10

Gueye earned the ball back twice and made some decent chances in the opponent’s half. He has got an assist to show for his efforts.

LM: Demarai Gray – 7/10

Gray scored a wonderful solo goal in the second half to salvage a point for the Toffees.

ST: Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 6.5/10

The English talent made two good runs with the ball but never looked like he would score.

Substitutes:

ST: Neal Maupay – 6/10

Maupay bought some fouls for his side.

RB: Seamus Coleman – 6.5/10

He was solid when defending inside his half.

CM: Tom Davies – 6/10

Davies added some energy to Everton’s midfield.

CM: Abdoulaye Doucoure – N/A

He hardly had any time to influence the game.
