EPL: Edin Dzeko's Brace Takes Manchester City to Top of Table

Liverpool:

Edin Dzeko's brace helped Manchester City come from behind to beat Everton 3-2 and stay in control of the Premier League title race on Saturday.

City had won just one of it's last 15 matches at Goodison Park and looked like continuing their poor run when Ross Barkley curled in a brilliant shot to give Everton an 11th-minute lead.

However, Sergio Aguero equalised in the 22nd before going off injured and Dzeko scored twice in a five-minute span around halftime to put City 3-1 ahead.

Romelu Lukaku's goal in the 65th set up a tense finish but City held on to provisionally go top of the standings on goal difference from Liverpool.

Victories in its two remaining games - at home to Aston Villa on Wednesday and West Ham on Sunday - should clinch City a second championship in three years.
