Everton – Toffees labouring of late at Goodison?

With Everton’s home struggles in the league showing no sign of abating, the possibility of reaching a first FA Cup semi-final in five seasons has the feeling of a long shot up against runaway Premier League leaders Man City. The Toffees are on a roll in this particular competition, however, scoring ten in the process of eliminating Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday and Tottenham here on Merseyside.

Carlo Ancelotti is set to be without several key personnel, though, with Jordan Pickford a confirmed absentee after picking up a thigh injury in the recent defeat to Burnley. That a fifth loss in seven league games at Goodison Park, having beaten only an out-of-sorts Southampton since the turn of the year. They have also lost Abdoulaye Doucoure for the season, while doubts persist over James Rodriguez’s availability.

The last thing any managers needs ahead of facing a team of the quality of Man City is an undermanned side, but Carlo Ancelotti must find solutions if Everton are to defy some sizeable odds this weekend. 21-year-old Joao Virginia is set to deputise between the sticks, in what will be a first start for the Portuguese goalkeeper. Seamus Coleman and Gylfi Sigurdsson are also in contention for a return to the side.

Manchester City – Imperious City unlikely to be stopped?

Having swept aside the challenge of Borussia Monchengladbach, currently a middling Bundesliga outfit from Germany’s Bundesliga, on Tuesday to breeze into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Man City now turn their attentions to the quarter-finals of another competition. Saturday’s FA Cup clash at Goodison Park against Everton represents another important stepping stone for this imperious side.

No English club has ever won all four major honours – FA Cup, League Cup, Premier League and Champions League – before. Plenty, though, are keen to talk up this City’s teams chances of achieving something unprecedented. That is because their form is such that it is difficult foreseeing who can possibly prevent them from completing the clean sweep, recording wins in 24 of their last 25 competitive matches.

If they are to be stopped, it seems unlikely to be Everton. Man City are enjoying a run of six straight victories against the Merseysiders. This includes all of the last four played at Goodison Park, scoring two or more while also winning by at least a two-goal margin in each, having won there in the league in February when goals from Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernado Silva sealed a 3-1 win.

Everton Vs Manchester City Betting Advice

A couple of bets immediately stand out. Both revolve around Man City winning, of course. The Citizens have won 24 of their last 25 matches in all competitions, and they boast a flawless record in this fixture as well with six straight victories. Four came here at Goodison Park, with City prevailing by exactly two goals each time. Everton did grab a consolation in all-but one, though, including last month’s 3-1 loss in the league.

 

Everton Vs Manchester City – Key Facts:

  • These sides are contesting a second competitive fixture in the space of little more than a month, after Man City’s 3-1 victory at Goodison Park on 17 February made it six consecutive wins over Everton.
  • Everton have lost five of their last seven Premier League home games (W1 D1). However, they won all three such matches in this season’s FA Cup, scoring ten times and conceding five.
  • Man City have won 24 of their last 25 games (L1) in all competitions, but have now kept only two clean sheets in their last six.

 

Man City to Win by Exactly 2 Goals (3/1 Bet365) and Man City Win & Both Teams to Score (2/1 BetFred) make for obvious appeal, therefore. The safer alternative would be backing goals. Everton have racked up ten in this season’s FA Cup, all of them coming here at Goodison Park, while Man City recently conceded in four successive games prior to keeping back-to-back clean sheets against Fulham and Gladbach.
