Everton and Manchester City face off on Monday in a key Premier League showdown at Goodison Park.
Everton comes into this game with 29 points which puts them in second place in the standings. Everton has looked really good in the last four games in the Premier League and during those four games they have come away with a victory. Everton’s last game was against Sheffield United, and the difference was a goal in the 80th minute by Gyifi Sigurosson and that led to the victory. Everton is averaging 1.73 goals per game while their defense is giving up1.27 goals per game. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been the best player for Everton and so far this season he has put 11 goals in the back of the net.
On the other side of this matchup is Manchester City who sit in 5th place in the Premier League standings with 25 points. Manchester City didn’t get out to a super-fast start to the season, but coming into this one they have won two games in a row. One big change from this Manchester City team from last year is they haven’t been blowing out as many teams with their goal scoring. Over the last two games they have outscored their opponents 3-0. Raheem Sterling and Rivad Mahrez have been the two best players for Manchester City this year each putting four goals in the back of the net.
This is a key game for both teams and I don’t think either one will want to make a mistake. Look for both teams to really focus on defense in this one and that will lead to a low scoring affair. Back the under to cash with ease. I also think it's a worth a look at Everton just based on value but if that's something you want to bet, just place a few dollars on it.
