Manchester City beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday night to equal Liverpool’s points total and go top of the Premier League on goal difference.

League leaders before kick-off, Liverpool’s advantage over Manchester City has been eliminated over the past week.

We went out and asked Everton fans if they want to beat Man City and help Liverpool in the title race. Or lose 3 points and spoil the reds chances. Here’s what they said. #EFC #EVEMCI #LFC pic.twitter.com/wjbkN1H1Sk

Twisted loyalties were on show with Liverpool fans wanting Everton to win as well as some of the home support confirming they wouldn’t mind defeat if it helped limit their rival’s chances of winning the title.

These were the best tweets and jokes as we all watched Manchester City win at Everton to go top of the table for the first time since mid-December:

Same again tomorrow lads 😂 #EFC #EVEMCI pic.twitter.com/zSOxn90hh5

Everton really benched Richarlison and Sigurdsson. They are fully on board with this thing.
