Everton vs Manchester City Fansbet Preview
“Marco Silva’s team have been moving in the wrong direction down the league table and following their 3-1 thrashing in front of the home faithful by Wolves on the weekend, confidence will be low. There should be no such problems for Guardiola’s Manchester City after their 3-1 win over Arsenal on the weekend, however they will be very well aware of the fact that every league clash from now on is a must win if they are to clinch the title again.”

Everton vs Manchester City Match Preview
Manchester City have taken advantage of a blank midweek for these clubs to bring this fixture forward – and potentially increase the pressure on Liverpool in the title race.
This match should have been played on the last weekend of February but City have again reached the Carabao Cup Final. Rather than squeeze it in later in the season, which could be a hectic time if they remain in the Champions League, they have opted to play it early instead.
We are writing this before the West Ham vs Liverpool fixture on Monday so it is unknown what the gap at the top of the table will be when the match at Goodison Park kicks off, but City will not want to blow this chance knowing the Reds will have a game in hand.
But neither should the opportunity be wasted. Although Pep Guardiola’s side admittedly slipped up at Newcastle last week, Everton are right out of sorts (see stats above) and slumped to a 3-1 home defeat against Wolves on Saturday.
The way City brushed aside Arsenal on Sunday proved there was no hangover from their Tyneside loss and we expect them to have a fairly comfortable night on Merseyside, which would turn up the heat on both Everton manager Marco Silva and the Toffees’ neighbours.
