Raheem Sterling scored late at the Etihad Stadium to earn a draw for Manchester City after Everton‚Äôs Wayne Rooney hit his 200th league goal.
Wayne Rooney‚Äôs 200th Premier League goal was not enough for Everton to earn all three points at the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City battled to a 1-1 draw.
The former Manchester United forward, who predictably had every touch booed by the home supporters, fired Everton in front 10 minutes before half-time to bring up his double-century in the competition, becoming only the second player to reach the milestone after Alan Shearer.
However, Everton left Manchester disappointed to take only a point after Raheem Sterling struck late on to deny Ronald Koeman‚Äôs men a rare Etihad win.
The Toffees ‚Äď leading through Rooney‚Äôs second strike of the campaign ‚Äď were aided by a controversial red card for Kyle Walker just before the break.
City had been building momentum prior to the opening goal and then recovered well before Walker clashed with Dominic Calvert-Lewin ‚Äď a soft second bookable offence leaving the hosts a man down for the entire second half.
But Pep Guardiola‚Äôs men kept pushing and, after a series of squandered chances, Sterling blasted an 82nd-minute equaliser to keep City unbeaten at this early stage of the season.
Both teams ended the game with 10 men as Morgan Schneiderlin ‚Äď initially booked in the seventh minute ‚Äď joined Walker in earning a second card in the closing stages.
