Phil Foden and Lukas Nmecha both scored twice as Manchester City edged a seven-goal thriller to deal a blow to Everton's prospects of successfully defending their Premier League 2 Division 1 title.

Foden (pictured) produced the winner five minutes from time in an eventful encounter at Goodison Park.

Everton had looked on course for victory after racing into a two-goal lead thanks to first-half goals by Fraser Hornby and Con Ouzounidis.

But City rallied in the second half through Foden, and two goals in six minutes by Nmecha.

City defender Joel Latibeaudiere was dismissed for a second bookable offence and within five minutes Everton made it 3-3 through Shayne Lavery.

But Foden had the final say with a fine left-footed strike.
