Everton – Ancelotti has tough task revitalising troops?

Here at Goodison Park last Sunday, Everton (W11 D4 L7) created a small piece of history as they lost a home Premier League game to Fulham for the very first time, doing so at the fifteenth attempt in another anonymous showing from Carlo Ancelotti’s men. The Toffees, with one win in six in the league (W1 D2 L2), would have moved level on points with neighbours Liverpool, in fourth, with a win but remain seventh.

Everton have now won just four of eleven home league games this season (W4 D2 L5), the last of those on 19 December against Arsenal who were hopelessly out of form at the time. Since then the Toffees have registered one point from their past four Premier League matches on Merseyside, a 1-1 draw with Leicester doing little to offset to nil defeats against Fulham (0-2), Newcastle (0-2) and West Ham (0-1).

The above form, or lack thereof, is hardly conducive for a strong performance and result at home to the division’s runaway leaders seeking a twelfth-straight win in the league. In the absence of top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the Everton attack produced a laboured showing, devoid of any creativity or guile, and the England striker remains a doubt for this fixture especially with a Merseyside derby to come at the weekend.

Manchester City – Pep’s charges in unrelenting form?

Is it still too early in the season to declare a team champions elect? With a seven point advantage atop the Premier League table, while also having this game in hand, it is going to take a capitulation of epic proportions were Man City (W16 D5 L2) not to lift the trophy aloft for the third time in four seasons in April. However, a testing run of games is on the horizon, starting with this midweek venture to Merseyside.

With a trip to an improving Arsenal side to come this weekend before back-to-back home games against European-chasing West Ham and second-in-the-table Man Utd, the Citizens are set to embark on quite possibly their toughest spell of the campaign. Particularly as amidst all this is a pivotal Champions League tie with Pep Guardiola’s former employers, Barcelona.

Momentum is their friend, though. Last Saturday’s 3-0 triumph in Manchester over Tottenham stretched their winning run across all competitions to a record-setting 16, with 11 coming in the league and all-but two being to nil. Ilkay Gundogan, who struck a brace last time out to take his tally since the start of the year to nine goals from as many games, is, however, rated doubtful with a groin problem.

Everton Vs Manchester City Betting Advice

On both current form and recent evidence, anything other than a routine win to nil for Premier League leaders Man City over seventh-place Everton would count as a considerable surprise. The Toffees were beaten comfortably here by lowly Fulham last time and have now been beaten to nil in three of their past four home league games, with two coming against sides in the bottom half of the table.


Everton vs Manchester City – Key Facts:

  • Across their past four home Premier League games, Everton have picked up only point and scored one goal, losing to nil on three occasions.
  • Nine of Man City‘s current 11-game winning run in the league came about through not conceding, winning to nil in three of their past five away Premier League matches.
  • Each of the previous three Premier League meetings held at Goodison Park were won by the visitors, who did so by a margin of precisely two goals on each occasion.


During their impressive eleven-match winning sequence in the league, Man City would not spend a single minute trailing. They have conceded only twice – a last-gasp consolation away to Chelsea and a soft penalty against Liverpool at Anfield – since a 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham in November. Yet the potential loss of their top scorer could be critical. Man City & Under 2.5 Goals, at 11/4 with PaddyPower, appeals.
