Onyango was afforded some minutes under his belt as the Toffees took on English champions Man City in the Premier League on Sunday, November 21, at the Etihad Stadium.

However, while it was a dream appearance for the promising midfielder, it was one to forget as Rafa Benitez's charges suffered a 3-0 heavy loss.

City were looking to build on their derby win over Man United before the international break to keep their hopes of retaining the domestic crown alive.

Despite dominating the early exchanges, City had to wait until the stroke of halftime to break the deadlock through Raheem Sterling.

Rodri doubled the home sides' advantage shortly after the break to ensure City takes full control of the encounter.

With Everton trailing by two goals, Benitez sent Onyango but the youngster did little to help his side as the hosts took the game beyond their opponents with their third goal in the 86th minute.

The 18-year-old will now be hoping to feature often for Everton as he looks to build his reputation as a dependable squad member.

Born in England, the former Luton ace was promoted to Everton's first team back in January 2021 by the then manager Carlo Ancelotti.

At the time, the teenage star was turning out for the junior sides before he rose through the ranks to graduate to the senior team.

Internationally, Onyango is currently playing for England at junior levels but he is eligible to feature for Harambee Stars since his father is a Kenyan.
