The Catalan saw his charges beaten 4-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday, with that defeat representing the heaviest of his glittering coaching career

Manchester City’s crushing 4-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday was the heaviest league loss of Pep Guardiola’s glittering coaching career.

The Catalan has suffered setbacks during previous spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, but never has he been beaten by four clear goals.

Everton make easy work of Man City

An unwanted record has now been chalked up, with City labouring their way through a forgettable performance at Goodison Park.

Guardiola’s side had their moments on Merseyside, but individual mistakes littered a disjointed display.

City were only one goal down at the interval, after seeing Romelu Lukaku break the deadlock, but fell to pieces in the second half.

Kevin Mirallas netted within two minutes of the re-start, before youngsters Tom Davies and Ademola Lookman rounded off a convincing win for the hosts.

It is back to the drawing board for Guardiola and City, with a humbling reversal ensuring that they will end the weekend outside of the Premier League’s top four.
