Commentary

Thanks for joining our commentary. Until next time, goodbye.
City now have five days to prepare for the Champions League final against Chelsea as the club seek to win their first European crown. Everton end their term on the lowest of notes.
Manchester City end the Premier League campaign with an emphatic 5-0 win over Everton at the Etihad Stadium. Sergio Aguero signed off in front of the City fans in his final league appearance with two goals from the bench in the second half, enjoying the perfect end to his Premier League tenure. Kevin De Bruyne started the rout before further goals from Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden put City out of sight. Aguero then took centre stage with his two efforts, taking his Premier League tally to 184 goals. Gylfi Sigurdsson missed a first-half penalty for the visitors, in a moment that epitomised their lacklustre performance.

Everton were lacklustre in the final third in the first half. Sigurdsson should have taken his opportunity from the spot, while Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin were also wasteful. The Toffees have the players, but they need to find their clinical edge.
Manchester City hold a 2-0 lead over Everton in their final day Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium. Kevin De Bruyne put the home side ahead with a curling finish from distance before Gabriel Jesus added a second on the counter. Gylfi Sigurdsson had the chance to get one back for the visitors from the penalty spot, but his effort was saved by Ederson. As a result, City are in command at the interval.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 2-0 EVERTON
45' + 2' Pickford makes a vital intervention at the back to slide in with a challenge to deny Sterling after De Bruyne sends an inviting low pass for the run of his team-mate into the left-inside channel.
45' There will be two minutes of added time.
43' OFF THE BAR! Mahrez comes within inches of adding a third for City. Sterling rolls the ball to the winger on the edge of the Everton box. He takes a touch before curling an effort towards the net. Pickford can only watch as the ball smacks off the bar and bounces to safety.
42' Calvert-Lewin turns in the box and away from Stones. He goes down, but the referee does not award a penalty to the visitors. VAR has a check, but agrees with the official on the field.
39' Mahrez goes on a probing run into the Everton box in the right-inside channel, but the Tofffees get men back to thwart the home side.
38' From the resulting corner for the visitors, the delivery from Sigurdsson is cleared as far as Digne. He attempts an ambitious strike on the volley from 25 yards that sails well over the bar.
Ederson Moraes
Penalty Save
36' SAVE! Ederson ensures that City maintain their two-goal lead as he guesses the correct way and palms Sigurdsson's effort away from goal.
G. Sigurðsson
Penalty Miss
36' MISS! Sigurdsson fails to convert from the spot as his strike towards the bottom-left corner is saved by Ederson. It is not a powerfully struck effort, and the City keeper guesses the correct way to make the stop. Richarlison on the rebound sees his effort deflected behind by Walker.
Rúben Dias
Yellow Card
35' Dias goes into the book after bringing down Richarlison for the penalty.

27' Jesus has scored eight Premier League goals against Everton, more than he has against any other opponent in the competition.
25' City are having their way with Everton at the moment. The Toffees have not been able to break into the game at all.
23' SAVE! Pickford denies De Bruyne with a fine stop. The Belgian lifts a cross towards Mahrez in the box, but the winger scuffs his effort at goal. The miscue travels all the way back to De Bruyne on the left flank, who hammers a low strike towards the net. Pickford is blinded by a crowd of players, but he still produces a fine stop before the rebound is hacked clear by Keane.
M. Holgate
Yellow Card
22' Foden runs at Holgate down the left flank and is brought down by the defender. The Everton man goes into the book for his cynical challenge, while City have a free-kick in a dangerous position.
21' De Bruyne is a fraction late on Allan, and the Everton midfielder is not happy. The Toffees get a free-kick, but the Belgian avoids a booking.
19' Pickford is played into trouble by Digne at the back and he cannot stop the ball travelling out for a corner. Everton need to get a foothold in the game and regain their composure.
16' Only Harry Kane has scored more PL goals from outside the box than De Bruyne (18) since his Man City debut.
K. De Bruyne
Assist

R. Mahrez
Assist

Richarlison
Yellow Card
7' Richarlison pulls back Mahrez on the charge and goes into the book.
6' SAVE! De Bruyne cuts open the Everton defence with an incisive throughball. Jesus has Foden in space in the middle, but he goes for a strike at goal that Pickford blocks behind for a corner.
5' SAVE! Sigurdsson releases the run of Calvert-Lewin in the final third and the forward surges into the right-inside channel. He fires low and hard at goal, but Ederson makes the stop for the home side.
4' Holgate works the ball inside for Sigurdsson, who lines up a drive on his left foot. However, it is tame and Ederson makes a simple grab.
3' Walker sends the ball over the top for Mahrez, but the ball skips off the surface and out for an Everton goal-kick.
1' We're under way at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City have won each of their last six Premier League games against Everton, as many as they had in their previous 21 against the Toffees (D5 L10).
Everton have made two changes to their side from their win over Wolves in their last outing. Yerry Mina misses out and is absent from the squad this afternoon. Holgate slots into the side to replace him, which sees Godfrey move alongside Keane at centre-back. Coleman drops to the bench as Davies comes into the middle of the park.
City have made five changes to their side from their defeat to Brighton last time out. Joao Cancelo is suspended and is replaced by Walker at right-back. De Bruyne and Fernandinho return to the middle of the park, while Jesus and Sterling get the nod in the final third. Aguero starts from the bench in his final league appearance for the club, although Guardiola is likely to bring on the Argentine in the second half.
EVERTON SUBS: Alex Iwobi, Niels Nkounkou, Bernard, Andre Gomes, Seamus Coleman, Joao Virginia, Robin Olsen, Kyle John.
EVERTON (4-3-3): Jordan Pickford; Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey, Lucas Digne; Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan, Tom Davies; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
MANCHESTER CITY SUBS: Nathan Ake, Ilkay Gundogan, Sergio Aguero, Zack Steffen, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, Bernardo Silva, Ferran Torres, Benjamin Mendy.
MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Phil Foden; Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling.
Everton bounced back from a disappointing loss at the hands of Sheffield United by beating Wolves in their last outing. If results land in their favour this afternoon they can finish in seventh place, and potentially as high as sixth if there is an eight-goal swing with West Ham United. However, Carlo Ancelotti and his team will be focused on putting in a positive performance against the champions to end their term with momentum to take into next season.
Manchester City have enjoyed a dominant run to their third Premier League title in four seasons. However, Pep Guardiola and his team will want to end their campaign with a flourish and build momentum for the Champions League final next week. City have lost two out of their last three matches, suffering defeats to Chelsea and Brighton. They will not want another loss on their record, ensuring that they end the season on a high note.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League final day clash between Manchester City and Everton at the Etihad Stadium.
