Man City miss two penalties in Everton draw

Maarten Stekelenburg

Stekelenburg made seven saves for Everton against Manchester City

Maarten Stekelenburg saved two penalties for Everton as his side escaped with a point against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Kevin de Bruyne was the first to miss in the opening period, seeing the Dutch goalkeeper push his effort away, and Sergio Aguero saw the same outcome in the second half.

Despite dominating possession, City went behind as Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring with a cool finish.

Nolito headed in for the hosts from David Silva’s inch-perfect cross, but De Bruyne had a drive brilliantly saved by Stekelenburg, as City failed to find the winner.
