Everton vs Manchester City betting tips: Premier League preview & prediction

Everton vs Manchester City 101 Great Goals prediction: Everton 1-3 Manchester City

After Marco Silva’s poor recent run as Everton boss in the Premier League, his side will need to come up with something special to stop Manchester City in their tracks.

The Toffees have been very disappointing in recent weeks, losing convincingly to both Bournemouth and Sheffield United.

That has piled the pressure on Everton boss Marco Silva, who is now one of the favourites in the Premier League to be sacked.

Though, after their Carabao Cup win against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, Silva and Everton will be looking to aid their Merseyside rivals Liverpool and stun Manchester City.

It won’t be easy though, with Pep Guardiola’s side going into the game off the back of their 8-0 demolition of Watford.

The defending Champions may have slipped up against Norwich the other week, but bounced back in style last weekend.

Now, they’ll be looking to build on that with another comprehensive win at Goodison Park.

Everton vs Manchester City: Who will win?

It will come as absolutely no shock who the favourites are for this game.

Manchester City go into the clash at odds of 3/10.

While Man City certainly seem the safe bet, returns would be very small.

That’s also considering that City were beaten by Norwich just two weeks ago.

If you’re feeling brave and bold, Everton are priced at 8/1 to win the game.

While many have already written the Toffees off, it wouldn’t be *that* much of a surprise if there was an upset.

Norwich proved recently that City are not invincible, and Everton beat all of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United at home last season without conceding a single goal.

That being said, we still predict a 3-1 win for the visitors, which you can find priced at a decent 10/1.

Moving onto the goalscorer market, the usual suspects top the charts.

Sergio Aguero is the favourite to score first, priced at 3/1.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus follow, both priced at 4/1.

Richarlison is Everton’s most likely man to score first according to the bookies, priced at 10/1 to net the opening goal.

Kevin De Bruyne is our pick to score first considering his recent form and value for money, with the Belgian priced at 15/2.

Everton vs Manchester City match preview

Everton have some serious work to do if they’re to turn around their campaign.

Despite it looking as though the Toffees could be onto something special ahead of the season, Everton are in the midst of a mini-crisis.

After an average start to the season, the wheels have well and truly come off in the Premier League.

A 3-1 loss to Bournemouth a couple of weeks ago had alarm bells ringing, with Marco Silva’s side comfortably beaten.

You could have put the result down to a bad day at the office, but that loss was followed up by an even more embarrassing result the week after.

Newly promoted Sheffield United came to Goodison Park, a place where Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United all lost last season, and walked away with a 2-0 win.

No bite, no creativity and no ideas are the best ways to sum up Everton’s performance.

Everton’s problems were laid bare in front of the Goodison faithful when Marco Silva brought on Theo Walcott for Seamus Coleman, with any notion of a formation thrown out the window in a last-ditch attempt to salvage something.

While Everton did get back to winning ways against the Blades’ rivals Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, it could get embarrassing for the Toffees this weekend.

Manchester City to run riot on Merseyside?

What an emphatic win it was for Manchester City last time out.

After an extremely shocking 3-2 defeat against Norwich a couple of weeks ago, Pep Guardiola’s side hosted Watford in their last Premier League fixture.

While it was expected there would be somewhat of a response, no one quite expected what was to come.

That’s because Manchester City ran out 8-0 winners.

David Silva opened the scoring, before Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi scored in quick succession.

Bernardo Silva went on to score a further two goals, before Kevin De Bruyne capped off the scoring.

If they performed at even 50% of how they did against Watford, Everton will be in trouble.

Everton team news vs Manchester City

The big concern for Everton will be the fitness of Andre Gomes ahead of this weekend.

The midfielder has been important for Everton ever since signing on loan last season, and permanently over the summer.

It’s no coincidence either that sub-par performances against Bournemouth and Sheffield United came when he was injured.

After also missing the Carabao Cup game in midweek, he could be back for the visit of Man City.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin will remain sidelined with a thigh injury.

Manchester City team news vs Everton

Manchester City looked to come through their clash with Preston unscathed on Tuesday night.

That will come as a big boost with Man City already struggling with a defensive crisis.

Both Aymeric Laporte and John Stones will miss the match this weekend, meaning Nicolás Otamendi is still the only fit central defender.

Fernandinho was used to partner Otamendi against Watford, and will likely feature alongside him this weekend.
