Today's Predictions and Odds for Everton vs Man City
Everton know how important their home results are going to be in terms of their Premier League survival and a win against Man City would make a huge statement. However, Everton have a poor recent record against Guardiola's men and the odds are stacked against the Toffees this weekend.
BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals
We're expecting goals in this game as Everton rarely keep clean sheets but usually find the back of the net at home, while Man City are a machine in front of goal but showed defensive frailties last weekend against Tottenham. Both teams have scored and over 2.5 goals have been produced in three of the last six meetings between these two clubs, and the same can be said for three of Everton's last six outings in league and cup. Four of Man City's last five fixtures have produced over 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in three of their last six games.
Raheem Sterling to Score
Sterling top scores for Man City in the Premier League this season with 10-goals and we're backing the former Liverpool player to find the back of the net on his return to Merseyside. Guardiola is looking to tie Sterling down to a new contract due to his recent good form which has produced 4-goals in the last three matches in all competitions.
Everton vs Man City: Stats, Markets & Odds
Any hope for the Toffees against the league leaders?
Everton started well away at Southampton and probably should have had an early penalty. However, Southampton grew into the game and eventually controlled it, as Everton retreated into their shell and played very much as they did away at Newcastle. The Saints scored two goals in the second half and Everton had no response, ending the game without having a single shot on target. There is no doubt that the Toffees are in genuine trouble this season and their players really need to stand up and start taking resp[onsabilty on the pitch.
Everton Predicted Lineup: Pickford, Patterson, Mykolenko, Keane, Holgate, Allan, van de Beek, Doucoure, Gray, Richarlison & Calvert-Lewin
Man City handed Liverpool some hope in the race for the Premier League title as they lost 3-2 at home to Tottenham on Sunday. City went behind in the 4th-minute but equalised in the 33rd-minute through Gundogan. Guardiola's men went behind for a second time just shy of the hour mark but looked to have salvaged a point when Mahrez converted a spot-kick in stoppage-time. However, Spurs won a penalty of their own in the 95th-minute and Kane scored to hand the visitors a surprise 3-2 victory.
Man City Predicted Lineup: Ederson, Walker, Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Gündoğan, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Rodri, Foden & Sterling
Everton: Mina, Godfrey, Davies and Delph will miss the game but the hosts hope to welcome back Gray and Doucoure from injury this weekend.
Man City: Steffen, Jesus, Grealish and Pamer could all miss the short trip to Merseyside through injury.
