Manchester United legend Gary Neville has praised Manchester City as a machine following the 3-0 victory over Everton which moved the club closer to winning the Premier League title this season.

“They are a machine,” Neville said. “They have sat there in this long race almost looking disinterested at times and at the right time they’ve come alive.

“We thought between the Real Madrid games that it would be a tough game but yesterday felt like a a hammer blow for Arsenal. Once that first goal went in it was mightily impressive.

“They showed real class not conceding a goal against a team fighting for their lives and they’ve shown the knowhow needed at this stage of the season.”
