Rodri cleared the ball, sprinted down the left and curled a shot from the spot for a surprise equalizer but Demarai Gray was there to help his side escape with a point.
Godfrey during his post-match speech
“It’s always going to be challenging. You’re already aware of Erling Haaland’s skill level. I just had to go for it. I think he was obviously upset. His reaction was audible. He’s achieved his goal and he’s still annoying others, so you should anticipate those challenges.
“During our training, Demarai [Gray] did that repeatedly. It was entirely because of him. Even though we were 1-0 down at half-time, we believed we would have another opportunity.”
“The result on Boxing Day was disappointing. To have such a terrible result, then to go somewhere like City and succeed, it speaks to our character.”
Man City are losing ground in the title race as they are held at home by Everton.
Everton held Manchester City to a heartbreaking 1-1 draw despite Erling Haaland’s second goal and Demarai Gray’s impressive strike. Haaland’s 21st league goal in the 24th minute gave him the most goals by a player in the Premier League before the new year. With Gray’s equalizer in the 64th minute, Everton made a huge comeback.
Even after more than 11 minutes of extra time extended as one of the referees had technical difficulties in the second half, City were unable to score. Everton held off City’s men in extra-time to secure an important point against the defending champions. Follow:
