Jesus double leads Man City past Everton 3-1

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Manchester City showed there was no lasting damage from last week's surprise defeat at Chelsea as the Premier League defending champions beat Everton 3-1 Saturday.

Gabriel Jesus scored twice and substitute Raheem Sterling grabbed the other goal to lead City back to the top of the standings ahead of second-placed Liverpool's standout game against rival Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

Jesus pounced on a throughball from Leroy Sane to slide the ball under England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and give the home side the lead midway through the first half.
