Cancels out Rooney’s 200th Premier League goal
Raheem Sterling came on to score an 82nd-minute equaliser as 10-man Manchester City rescued a 1-1 draw against Everton in its opening Premier League home game on Monday.
Wayne Rooney put Everton ahead with his 200th Premier League goal before City home debutant Kyle Walker was contentiously shown a second yellow card following a collision with Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Sterling, a half-time substitute, rewarded heavy City pressure by slamming in a late equaliser and Everton also finished with 10 men after Morgan Schneiderlin, too, was given a debatable second caution.
City preserved its record of never having lost its first home Premier League game, but the main upshot was that Manchester United, Huddersfield Town and West Bromwich Albion now boast the only 100% records in the league.
The results: Premier League: Manchester City 1 (Sterling 82) drew with Everton 1 (Rooney 35).
La Liga: Levante 1 (Morales 88-pen) bt Villarreal 0; Malaga 0 lost to Eibar 1 (Charles 57).
