Manchester City can clinch the Premier League title against Manchester United next Saturday after the runaway leaders outclassed Everton at Goodison Park.
Gabriel Jesus headed in his ninth Premier League goal of the season from just 14 starts. Pep Guardiola‚Äôs men looked refreshed after the international break as they charged into a 2-0 lead in 12 minutes.
Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus put the Blues in charge before Raheem Sterling made it 3-0 shortly before half-time.
Yannick Bolasie pulled one back for Everton but City are now just one win from their third Premier League title.
City made a great start as Sane volleyed home from a David Silva cross and although Bolasie headed just over for Everton, City went straight up the other end for Jesus to head in from Kevin de Bruyne‚Äôs centre.
Silva twice went close before squaring for Sterling to sidefoot home, and the champions-elect had eased off by the time Bolasie unleashed a 20-yard strike which went in off both posts.
After United beat Swansea earlier, City‚Äôs fifth straight league victory re-opened a 16-point lead so they will seal the title by beating their local rivals in next week‚Äôs Manchester derby at Etihad Stadium.
Having won their previous two games, Everton remain secure in ninth place, three points behind Leicester and three above Bournemouth and Watford.
