Manchester City News and Form – Will City beat Everton?

City beat Sheffield United at the Etihad on Sunday, which was less than 48 hours after having lost to Wolves on Friday. So it’s a crazy schedule for the Citizens, which means that they will likely have to make personnel changes to their starting eleven. City have secured back to back home victories in the top flight at least and are at W7 D1 L2 on home soil this season. Pep Guardiola’s men have scored at an average of 2.7 goals per home fixture. Even though they have had their defensive issues, City have conceded at under a goal per home game.

Over 4.5 goals


It has been a total of 4 home clean sheets by them. Home and away combined, the Citizens have earned only two clean sheets in their last ten league games, however. They have one in their last five at the Etihad. Of the seven home wins that they have picked up, all but two of them have been by at least a two goal margin. City have been leading at the break in five of their home fixtures. They have hit the back of the net in each of their last six on home soil, and in each of their last dozen home and away combined. Man City have scored at least two goals in each of their last four top flight games.

Key-Facts – Manchester City vs Everton

  • Man City beat Sheffield United on Sunday
  • The Toffees are unbeaten in five league games
  • Everton were away winners at Newcastle on Saturday


Everton News and Form – Can Everton extend unbeaten form?

On the weekend, Everton made it two wins from two under Carlo Ancelotti. They took a 2-1 victory at Newcastle on Saturday, following up their Boxing Day success over Burnley. The away form of Everton sits at a fairly unconvincing W2 D2 L6 this season, but they have bagged four points from their last two at least. This is going to be the toughest fixture of Ancelotti’s short tenure as Everton boss. Everton have lost at Liverpool and Leicester, two of the other top-three, this season. The Toffees have scored just 11 goals in their 10 away games.

8 of those 11 Everton goals were netted in the first period of away games. The defence of Everton has conceded at an average of 1.9 goals per away game. They have secured one away clean sheet only in this campaign. Home and away they have only conceded one goal in their last three league games. Five of Everton’s league victories this season have been by one goal margin, while six of their nine losses have been by a margin of at least two goals. Only three teams start the weekend with a worse away record than that of Everton’s.

Manchester City vs Everton Predictions

Man City to win: Manchester City are not having the season that they would have hoped. The title chance is gone really and they should be playing without a degree of pressure. Everton have had a good start under Carlo Ancelotti but they may find the going too tough at the Etihad.
