LONDON, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- Manchester City claimed an easy win at home to Everton on Sunday to keep in the race for the Premier League title along with Chelsea and Liverpool.

Although Pep Guardiola's side lost Kevin de Bruyne to Covid-19 in the days before the game, they were clear winners on Sunday, opening the scoring in the 44th minute through Raheem Sterling, who beat Jorden Pickford after a magnificent defense-splitting pass from Joao Cancelo.

Rodri doubled City's lead with a thundering shot in the 55th minute and Bernardo Silva added a third from close range four minutes from time.

Tottenham beat Leeds United 2-1 in Antonio Conte's home debut in the Premier League thanks to goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sergio Reguilon, whose second-half strikes overturned Daniel James's 44th-minute opener for Leeds which had threatened to make things difficult for the home side.

On Saturday Chelsea win 3-0 away to Leicester City to ensure they remain top of the league, while Liverpool demolished Arsenal 4-0 to stay second and West Ham were beaten 1-0 away to Wolves.

Meanwhile Manchester United's 4-1 defeat to Watford led to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being sacked as first-team coach on Sunday lunchtime with former player Michael Carrick taking over on a short-term basis.
