Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin reflects on their 3-1 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday as they tried to stage a comeback after going one goal behind in the first half.

Calvert-Lewin scored to make it 2-1 in the 65th minute, as Marco Silva’s side tried to equalize after Gabriel Jesus’ brace gave City a two-goal advantage.

However, Raheem Sterling came on and scored City’s third goal to put the game beyond Everton.

“It’s a frustrating result,” Calvert-Lewin told the club’s website.

Ian Wright makes Premier League title prediction

The Premier League title race between Liverpool and Manchester City will be decided by the narrowest of margins, according to Arsenal legend Ian Wright. Klopp's men...

“We know they’re a top team but we came here to try to get a result and to try to win the game.

“It’s disappointing when they go 1-0 up and then you think we have chances to level it and, if we take them, the game can go a different way. But they’re clinical in front of goal and were perhaps more clinical than us today.

“I think the timing of the goals is vital. We knew coming in at half-time we needed to score the next goal, really.

“They’re at home so they were enjoying their football, as they do. They kind of killed it a bit [by scoring the second]. We got ourselves back in the game but unfortunately, they’ve then settled it.”
