The first managerial meeting between former team mates and good friends Ronald Koeman and Pep Guardiola ended on an extremely sour note for the latter. Koeman’s Everton thoroughly outclassed Guardiola’s Manchester City on the day, so much so that the 4-0 thrashing was the worst ever loss of Pep’s managerial career.
The best part about the victory from Everton’s perspective was the successful debuts of youngsters Tom Davies and Ademola Lookman. Both managed to score absolute worldies on debut; Davies chipped Bravo for Everton’s third and Lookman came off the bench to convert a chance most top-level players would be proud of.
Amazingly, one Everton fan managed to predict exactly how the latter goal would come about. Tweeting out the sequence before the goal almost exactly how it happened, the tweet was retweeted over four thousand times, with many shocked at just how well the fan managed to get the sequence of play right.
