Everton v Man City Odds
Relegation-threatened Everton enters this match as massive underdogs despite home advantage as they face title favourites and the winning juggernaut that is Man City at the moment. Everton are currently priced at 8/1 to win.
Man City are huge favourite and can be gotten at 3/10, while the draw is 15/4. A staggering 97% of bets have gone on a Man City victory, and 2% have backed the Everton win with only 1% of bettors favouring the draw (figures correct as of Thursday morning, May 11th).
The Form – Everton v Man City
Relegation-threatened Everton is currently 17th on the table on 32-points with three games left in their Premier League season. They are the current second-longest-serving top-flight club in England having never been relegated from the Premier League and their last relegation coming in the 1950-51 season. Only Arsenal’s record of 1912-13 betters it.
In their last five matches, they have shown decent form for a side that could be relegated to the Championship with one win, two draws and two defeats in their last five league games. Last weekend they pulled off a shock 1-5 victory over European Contenders Brighton in a huge boost in their relegation fight.
The scoreline doesn’t tell the full story though with Brighton creating an XG of 3.2 to Everton’s 2.3. Had it not been for an inspired performance from Pickford in goal they could be looking destined for the drop. As it stands, they have three games left to secure their status, but first up is Man City who are an entirely different prospect…
Man City’s Form
Man City come into this fixture in flying form and on course to potentially complete a historic treble. They currently occupy first place in the league with 82 points from their 34 matches played, one-point clear of Arsenal having played one less game than their closest rivals on the table.
They have won their last ten matches in the Premier League, and it seems like they have no intention of stopping with four games to play as they chase their third successive title and a historic treble.
Man City faced Real Madrid in Madrid mid-week in the first leg of their Champions League Semi-Final coming from 1-0 behind in the 36th minute. A Kevin De Bruyne strike in the 67th minute was enough to earn them a draw going into the second leg. Man City show no signs of letting up and will fancy themselves to comfortably beat Everton at the weekend.

Everton v Man City Preview
Everton has been poor in attack this season with 32 goals scored only Wolves and Southampton have scored less than their 0.91 goals per game record. However, Everton has been better in front of goal lately with nine goals in their last five matches a record of 1.8 goals per match effectively doubling their full-season output per game. Last weekend they scored five goals from an XG of 2.3 which means they were a lot more clinical to win that match.
Their main threat is Dwight McNeil on the flanks who has 7 goals and 3 assists in his 36 matches this season and will be pivotal to Everton getting any luck against Man City at the weekend with his pace and crossing. McNeil will likely be targeted throughout the game through long-balls on the counter.
Man City’s Defence
Man City’s defence has conceded 31 goals this season an average of 0.91 goals per match which is good enough for the second-best defence behind Newcastle who has only conceded 29 goals. This is very much because the attack is the best form of defence for Guardiola’s side and being dominant in possession means they give up very few chances.
In their last five league matches they have only conceded 4 goals which is an average of only 0.8 goals per match suggesting their defensive unit is only getting stronger as the season reaches its climax.
Man City’s Attack
Man City have the best attack in the Premier League this season with 89 goals in 34 games which is an average of 2.61 goals per match. This attack is led by the freak of nature that is Erling Haaland. The Norwegian has scored a staggering 35 goals and contributed 7 assists in his 32 league matches.
Aside from Haaland (even if Everton stops him) Man City have a dearth of attacking options at their disposal with playmaker Kevin De Bruyne scoring 7 goals and giving 16 assists in 30 games and Phil Foden has 10 goals and 5 assists.
Everton’s defence has conceded 53 goals this season an average of 1.55 goals per match only five teams in the league have a worse defensive record. In their last five league matches they have continued to leak goals at the back with ten goals in their last five matches an average of 2 goals conceded per match.
However, in their 1-5 victory against Brighton, their goalkeeper put in an inspired performance to ensure they earned a crucial win in their relegation fight. It will take a similar level of performance for them to come close to getting any sort of result at the weekend. Then again manager Sean Dyche has pulled off miracles before and won’t fear Man City.
Everton v Man City Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Everton 0-3 Man City
Man City look unstoppable and despite Everton’s huge win last weekend, Man City are a whole different prospect. Expect Haaland to put them to the sword for a comfortable victory while Everton remains in Relegation trouble with two games to play.
Best Bet: Manchester City – Win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 @ 7/2
