Man City Christmas betting tips – Last 10 Boxing Day results

Leeds 1-3 Man City – 28 December 2022

City did not play on Boxing Day last season but produced a dominant display at Leeds two days later, as Erling Haaland scored a brace to make him the fastest player to score 20 PL goals.

Man City 6-3 Leicester – Boxing Day 2021

City were involved in a nine-goal Boxing Day thriller in the 2021/22 campaign, as they beat Leicester to move six points clear at the top of the table.

Man City 2-0 Newcastle – Boxing Day 2020

Another fairly comfortable win for City, who crucially moved up to fifth in the table after a slow start, five points off the top.

Wolves 3-2 Man City – 27 December 2019

The first defeat on this list, City went down 3-2 to Wolves the day after Boxing Day, as Ederson was sent off in the 12th minute. Incidentally, a Raheem Sterling brace put them 2-0 up despite the red card, but the hosts fought back to turn the game around.

Leicester 2-1 Man City – Boxing Day 2018

Another surprise defeat as City lost 2-1 at Leicester to put them seven points behind Liverpool in the title race. Bernardo Silva scored for the visitors, who also saw Fabian Delph red-carded late on.

Newcastle 0-1 Man City – 27 December 2017

City won their 18th league game in a row to move 15 points clear at the top of the PL, as Sterling scored the only goal of the match.

Hull 0-3 Man City – Boxing Day 2016

City scored three second-half goals in a comfortable away win at Hull to move seven points behind league leaders Chelsea.

Man City 4-1 Sunderland – Boxing Day 2015

Another dominant performance saw City race into a 3-0 lead inside 22 minutes before Kevin De Bruyne added a fourth in the second half.

West Brom 1-3 Man City – Boxing Day 2014

City raced into another quick 3-0 lead in this one, as they moved to within three points of Chelsea at the top of the PL.

Man City 2-1 Liverpool – Boxing Day 2013

A clash of two PL heavyweights saw City keep up their 100% home record by edging out Liverpool.

Man City Christmas betting tips – Everton vs Man City niche markets

Haaland to score anytime, Man City to win and BTTS – 13/5

A repeat of City's festive fixture against Leeds last season would see Haaland score, the visitors win, and both teams are on the scoresheet.

Everton are in fine form and are capable of scoring here, but City will not want to lose more ground at the top of the PL.

The main question would be Haaland's fitness, as he has missed playing in the Club World Cup through injury, with no current timeframe on when he will return.

However, if he is fit, he should always be backed to net as the PL's top scorer (14) and the player who has accumulated the highest expected goals (Xg) in the league this season.

Over 4.5 total goals – 17/4

Three of City's previous 10 Boxing Day fixtures have produced five or more goals, including the nine-goal thriller against Leicester in 2021. Therefore, with Pep Guardiola's side the highest scorers in the division so far (40), and Everton also in goalscoring form, we can expect plenty in this one.

Everton 0-3 Man City correct score 1st half  – 28/1

The previous Boxing Day fixtures have also seen City race into quick 3-0 leads on more than one occasion, so them winning 3-0 at HT could be a very niche market to go for, and one that would subsequently pay out well. Everton are no pushovers, however, so it would take a lot for this to come through.
