Manchester City Prediction – Can Man City push Leicester?

A third win from their last four matches on Sunday evening saw Manchester City collect another valuable three points with a 2-0 home win against Sheffield United and in turn handed The Blades their first defeat of the season away from home.

Manchester City hold home advantage once again on New Years Day when they entertain a rejuvenated Everton side at the Etihad Stadium, while City will be looking to overtake Leicester City into 2nd spot by the end of the day.

Having won 5 of their last 6 home matches, you’d think Manchester City were in good form but the margins of error have been made extremely slim by a magnificent Liverpool outfit this season, and City’s recent defeat at home to Manchester United has overshadowed their victories over Aston Villa, Southampton, Chelsea, Leicester City and Sheffield United.

City’s overall record at home looks reasonable enough though as it stands at 7-1-2 27/9 and although the price is short for a home win here, we can boost it by the prospects of 3 goals or more being scored – indeed, 8 of Man City’s 10 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored to date.

Everton Prediction – Can Everton hold City up?

The visitors have recently put together an impressive and encouraging sequence of 5 matches without defeat in the Premier League following the departure of former manager, Marco Silva, as The Toffees continued their climb up the top flight table with a 2-1 win away from home at Newcastle United.

A 3-1 win over Chelsea and 1-0 against Burnley, both at Goodison Park laid the foundations for a decent run but Everton’s recent revival will be put to the test at the Etihad Stadium against a talented but recently inconsistent Manchester City outfit.

Results away from home for The Toffees have been a mixed bag as the visitors have picked up wins at Southampton and Newcastle United but have also fallen to defeats at Leicester City and Liverpool.

Despite the recent upturn in results, the fact still remains that Everton have managed to record just 3 away wins out of their last 15 matches on their travels, and they could come unstuck at Manchester City on New Years Day.


Key-Facts – Manchester City vs Everton

  • Man City have won 5 of their last 6 matches at home in the EPL
  • 8 of Man City’s 10 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored
  • Everton have won just 3 of their last 15 away matches in the EPL


Betting Tips Verdict

Manchester City should win this despite Everton’s revival, and we should see a few goals too.
