Ilkay Gundogan Manchester City make a fantastic double as they approach fifth place Premier League 6 seasons championship with a 3-0 win Everton.
As a result of their win at Merseyside and Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat at home BrightonThe first one will once again secure the trophy by scoring a maximum of three more points from the remaining three games at home against Chelsea next Sunday.

Gündoğan’s tally increased to four in two matches with a masterful over-the-shoulder volley and a perfect curling free kick.
In the interim, Erling Haaland put his nearly mandatory goal for the season to 52, and former Everton striker Dixie Dean’s record of 63 is still within realistic reach.
Arsenal couldn’t do the same in one game, however, as boss Mikel Arteta acknowledged it was a must-win event as the second half goals from Julio Enciso, Deniz Undav and Pervis Estupinan before kick-off gave Brighton a stunning win at Emirates Stadium.
After a contentious first half, Arsenal were left behind by Enciso’s header in the 51st minute, and as they desperately sought a way back into the game, they were picked by hosts Undav and then Estupinan in a devastating show by the visitors. They were on the verge of joining Europe for the first time.
Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa’s goals left West Ham still mathematically unsure of their place in next season’s best flight after Brentford’s 2-0 win.
David Moyes made nine subs against AZ Alkmaar ahead of Thursday night’s Europa Conference League semi-final second leg, but saw his side fall short against the Bees squad, which was deprived of the services of Mbeumo and 20-goal forward Ivan Toney. Wissa both scored before halftime.
Danny Ings He thought he had narrowed the gap after the break, but was arguably not allowed to tap for handball by Divin Mubama after VAR review.
