Everton host Manchester City for a midweek game in the English Premier League at Goodison Park.
Manchester City will be boosted by Liverpool’s slip up over the weekend which means the Sky Blues are only 3 points behind the league leaders. In their last outing, Manchester City won with comfort as they defeated Arsenal at home by a score of 3-1. It was a very strong performance by Manchester City as it was a comfortable win against an opponent ranked in the top 5. Sergio Aguero was the hero for Manchester City as the Argentine striker scored a hat-trick to ensure there was no doubt about the result. The midfield had a decent game for Manchester City as they helped the team control 59% of possession and created 19 shooting opportunities.
On the other side of the coin, Everton had a very poor outing in their last game as they were beaten at home by Wolves. It was a disappointing game for Everton as they controlled the majority of the ball but failed to convert their chances. In addition to that, Everton defender very poorly as they allowed Wolves to have 4 shots on target. Everton have been in poor form and it will be very tough for them to cause an upset against Manchester City.
Everton and Manchester City played earlier in the season. On that occasion, the game was played at the Etihad Stadium and Manchester City won 3-1.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. Manchester City have been playing exceptional football while Everton have been struggling. Furthermore, Manchester City have a much stronger group of players when compared to the Toffees. With that in mind, I see Manchester City getting all 3 points away from home at Goodison Park.
