Everton vs Manchester City match preview

With this game sandwiched in-between the two legs of their Real Madrid tie, could this be where Manchester City slip-up in the title race?

On Tuesday night, the Citizens came from a goal down to draw 1-1 at the Bernabéu in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

Kevin De Bruyne’s thunderous shot ensuring it ended all square in the Spanish capital.

So now, given that Man City are unbeaten in 25 Champions League home games, dating back to 2018, they’re big favourites to reach the final in İstanbul.

This could of course form part of an historic treble that Pep Guardiola’s team are very much on course for.

In the Premier League, the Sky Blues have now enjoyed ten successive wins, most-recently beating Leeds 2-1, with İlkay Gündoğan bagging a brace, before also missing a late penalty.

This leaves Man City one point clear of Arsenal, having also played one game less.

After this, the Sky Blues face Chelsea (H), Brighton (A) and Brentford (A), knowing they can afford to drop points once, but once only.

As for Everton, they’ll come into this daunting clash full of confidence, following an emphatic victory on Bank Holiday Monday.

Against all odds, the Toffees smashed Brighton 5-1 at the Amex, with Abdoulaye Doucouré and Dwight McNeil both bagging braces, the former breaking the deadlock after just 31 seconds.

This is the first time the Blues have scored 5+ in a Premier League away game since another 5-1 victory, coming over Sean Dyche’s Burnley on Boxing Day 2018.

In the here and now, that ended Everton’s seven match streak without a victory, and lifted Dyche’s team out of the drop zone, two points clear of both Leeds and Leicester.

The Toffees’ remaining games are Wolves (A) and Bournemouth (H), so anything they get here will be viewed as a massive bonus.

Man City had won ten consecutive meetings with Everton, scoring 27 goals and conceding just five, before the two drew 1-1 on New Year’s Eve, this the most-recent time Man City failed to win any fixture at the Etihad.

So, will the Goodison faithful roar their team on to an historic and pivotal victory, or will Manchester City prove simply too strong?

Everton team news

After such an impressive victory on Monday, there’s no reason for Sean Dyche to change anything.

Somewhat surprisingly, James Garner kept his place in midfield, chosen over fit again Amadou Onana, but the former Man United man was excellent.

The other big decision made was bringing Yerry Mina back into defence, with the Colombian making just his fifth appearance of the season, starting for the first time since 21 January.

Nathan Patterson will continue to deputise for the injured Séamus Coleman at right-back, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the line; keeping him fit will be key to their survival hopes.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Mina, Mykolenko; Gana Gueye, Doucouré, Garner, McNeil, Iwobi; Calvert-Lewin.

Manchester City team news

With the second leg against Real Madrid to come on Wednesday, expect Pep Guardiola to heavily rotate, which isn’t to say his XI will lack quality.

Guardiola didn’t make a single substitution at the Bernabéu, meaning his squad players will be particularly fresh.

Nathan Aké is the only player currently injured, but Rico Lewis, Aymeric Laporte and Sergio Gómez could all come into the defence.

£50 million summer singing Kalvin Phillips will be hoping for his first Premier League start of the season in midfield.

Further forward, Phil Foden, Riyāḍ Maḥrez and Julián Álvarez could form a new-look attack, which isn’t bad is it?

Predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Ederson; Lewis, Stones, Laporte, Gómez; Phillips, Gündoğan, Silva, Maḥrez, Foden; Álvarez.
