Manchester City opened up a four-point lead over Arsenal in the Premier League, as Pep Guardiola's side took another step towards a third title in a row with a 3-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Meanwhile, now having played a game more, Mikel Arteta's men made it difficult for themselves by suffering their fifth league loss of the season in the 3-0 home defeat against Brighton.
