Premier League 2017-18: Sterling strike for Manchester City cancels out Rooney opener


Wayne Rooney became the second player to score 200 premier league goals after his first half strike against Manchester City but his goal was cancelled out as Everton were denied a win by a 10-man City at the Etihad stadium.

Raheem Sterling’s 82nd-minute goal saved City from defeat as they drew 1-1 at home to Everton after Rooney had put the visitors ahead.

Rooney’s second goal in as many games this season was his 200th in the Premier League, making him just the second player after former England forward Alan Shearer to reach that milestone.

The 31-year-old, who rejoined his boyhood club from Manchester United last month, side-footed through the legs of City keeper Ederson in the 35th minute after good work from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

City’s problems increased a minute before the break when they had full back Kyle Walker sent off for a second yellow card on his home debut.

But Pep Guardiola’s side saved their blushes when Sterling met a headed clearance from Mason Holgate and unleashed an unstoppable volley.

Everton had midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin sent off in the 88th minute.
