Ilkay Gundogan starred again for Manchester City, with two goals and an assist from the German helping his side to a 3-0 victory at Everton, which extends their advantage over Arsenal to four points in the Premier League title race.
City now effectively need just five points from their final three league games to clinch a fifth title in six seasons, given their much better goal difference – and Gundogan is leading the way.
Last week he scored twice in the win at Leeds. He then got an assist at Real Madrid in midweek.

The Premier League title is almost within touching distance now for City, who have won 11 in a row in this competition.
They could be crowned at Brighton on May 24 if they win their next two. But first, they must refocus their attentions on European matters, with the second leg of their Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid coming up at the Etihad on Wednesday.
