Man City v Everton Preview
Man City’s Form
Man City look to be coming to the boil at just the right time of the season as we gear towards the business end with 5 league victories in a row and 9 in all competitions. They’ve also shown themselves to be able to win things in a gritty way like Champions beating Newcastle 2-3 and coming from behind to beat Brentford on Monday 1-3.
Their game against Brentford said a lot about the beast that is Man City at the moment. Having gone 1-0 down through a Maupay goal, they kept it cool and a hat-trick by Foden landed them the spoils to continue the winning run. Man City had 72% of possession in the match with their 25 shots amassing an XG total of 2.09.
While Man City are second in the league, on the Expected Points Table they’re currently top of that table with 46.97 points ahead of Arsenal in second place with 46.88. Their main strength is their clinical finishing, scoring 54 goals from an XG of 49.30.

Everton are a curious case, their results in the league should have them 12th on 29 points and clear of the relegation zone. However, due to their 10-point deduction, they are currently 18th in the table and look very much in relegation trouble due to potentially a few more points sanctions on the way.
Last Weekend Everton earned themselves a brilliant 2-2 draw against Tottenham after Branthwaite scored a dramatic 94th-minute equaliser following a Richarlison brace. The draw was no more than they deserved too, having created an XG of 2.62 in the game compared with Tottenham’s 0.98.
Everton are currently 7th in the Expected Points table which is a testament to their performances under Dyche. However, it’s their failure to get goals letting them down, scoring 26 goals from an XG of 41.08.

Key Players To Watch
Phil Foden – Man City
The Manchester maestro is tremendously versatile playing across all four positions in the front four this season making him a key cog in the Guardiola side.
Foden seems to be coming alive this season and his hat-trick against Brentford last Monday takes his total for the season to 11 goals and 9 assists in 33 matches across all competitions.
James Garner – Everton
The former Man United Academy Star James Garner (22) is flourishing this season away from Old Trafford playing DM, CM and RM for Dyche. He has 29 appearances in all competitions, two goals and one assist.
Garner will be crucial to the Everton defensive effort and maintaining the Man City threat come the weekend.
Man City v Everton Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Man City 2-0 Everton
Man City look to be a non-stop freight train right now and it’s very difficult not to see them continuing that winning streak at the weekend.
However, Everton have proven to be a tough nut to crack this season built off a solid defensive structure under Sean Dyche and had it not been for their points deduction and some inability in front of goal they’d be a lot higher in the table.
Man City should win this game, but I can’t see them putting too many goals past this Everton team.
Best Bet: Under 2.5 Goals and Man City Win @ 3/1
