Official: Man City Star Gundogan Edges Out Other Nominees To Emerge as the Winner of the MOTM Award

Gundogan starred as Pep Guardiola's Manchester City ease past Sean Dyche's Everton 3-0.

They made a pretty poor start to the game but turned things around with two goals in two minutes towards the end of the first half.

Gundogan got the first with an audacious flick with his back to goal before then setting up Haaland for a thumping header moments later. It was then wrapped up early in the second half, with the German scoring a wonderful free-kick by curling it into the top corner.

Tarkowski did smack a header off the bar later on, but Everton couldn't find a response.

That's now 11 Premier League wins on the bounce for City as they move four points clear of Arsenal, with the North Londoners due to kick off against the Seagulls shortly. Now their attention turns to the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid. The Merseyside based outfit stay just one point clear of the drop zone, and they travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers next weekend.

After the completion of the match, Germany and Manchester City midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan was named the man of the match after his impressive performance in the engine room for the Citizens.

The experienced playmaker netted the opener, provided the assist for Erling Braut Haaland before sealing it off with a stunning free kick to hand City the advantage in the Title Race.
