Everton 0-1 Manchester City LIVE score and goal updates as Leroy Sane thumps the table toppers ahead

Idrissa Gana Gueye has failed a late fitness test before Everton’s clash with Premier League leaders Manchester City at Goodison Park.

The midfielder suffered a hamstring injury in the Toffees’ victory over Stoke prior to the international break and was assessed on Saturday morning.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (knee) remains out while defender Ashley Williams completes a three-game ban.

Manchester City defender John Stones will miss the trip to his former club Everton after suffering a head injury on international duty.

Stones has recovered from the blow that forced him off during England’s friendly against Italy on Tuesday but must sit out due to concussion protocols.

Top scorer Sergio Aguero (knee) is now close to fitness but City have rested him with next week’s Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool in mind. Benjamin Mendy (knee) also remains on the sidelines.

Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Baines, Keane, Jagielka, Schneiderlin, Rooney, Walcott, Calvert-Lewin, Bolasie, Tosun

Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Kompany, Laporte, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva, Sterling, Jesus, Sane
