Sergio Aguero signed off from the Premier League in perfect style, scoring twice after coming on as a substitute as champions Man City finished with a 5-0 win over Everton, whose European dreams were ended with defeat at the Etihad Stadium

The moment every City fan wanted came in the 65th minute when Aguero, who will leave after 10 years at the club, replaced Riyad Mahrez, and it took him just six minutes to get on the scoresheet with a smart finish past Jordan Pickford.

City, back in front of their fans at the Etihad, also finished their Premier League campaign in style as they steamrolled Everton. They looked every bit the champions as strikes from Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus gave Pep Guardiola’s side an early lead.

Everton grew into the game and they did cause City’s defence plenty of problems, but they spurned their golden chance to get back into the match as Ederson saved Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty after Ruben Dias brought down Richarlison inside the penalty area.

Phil Foden added a third early in the second half before the Aguero show meant that City, who got their hands on the Premier League trophy, warmed up for next week’s Champions League final in perfect style.

Meanwhile, it was a disappointing end to the season for Everton. Their European dreams were dashed by the big defeat at City and Carlo Ancelotti’s side finish in a disappointing 10th.
