What Trueform says for Man City vs Everton
Everton have a decent record against Manchester City and may be worth considering on the handicap markets ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The Toffees memorably thrashed the Blues 4-0 on Merseyside a couple of seasons ago and have drawn on their last three top-flight trips to Etihad Stadium.
Those past encounters make 7/5 for the visitors with two goals start a tempting option for our first Man City vs Everton prediction.
That bet would have come in when Marco Silva’s side took on Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool over the past month or so!
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City slipped off the summit when falling to their first Premier League defeat of the season at Chelsea last weekend.
Pep Guardiola’s side failed to capitalise on some early pressure and then looked flat after falling behind to N’Golo Kante’s strike on the stroke of half-time.
David Luiz headed in a second and defender John Stones told the club website: “The best way to get over this is by winning the next game.
“We were top of the league coming into the game and everyone wants that spot. Now we have something to look back on and we will take everything out of it.”
City also wobbled late on when winning their previous Premier League game at Watford 2-1, though, and this may be a good time to take them on.
Looking at the Man City vs Everton odds, we like Evens for both teams to score, with the Toffees having netted in five straight head-to-head meetings.
Last Man City EPL line-up: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Delph, B Silva, D Silva, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Sterling, Sane.
City could welcome back Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne from groin and knee injuries respectively.
Defenders Stones and Danilo and midfielder Fernandinho will be assessed after knocks but David Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo are all out.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton completed a frustrating 10-day stretch when needing a stoppage-time Lucas Digne free-kick to draw 2-2 at home to Watford, with Gylfi Sigurdsson earlier having a penalty saved.
The Toffees had previously gone down 1-0 at Liverpool in heart-breaking fashion, before having to settle for a share of the spoils against Newcastle at Goodison Park.
Digne, an £18million summer signing from Barcelona, knows more will be needed in upcoming games against City and Tottenham.
“We saved the defeat and I’m happy with my goal but we would have preferred the win,” he said. “We need to stay focused and continue the work.
“We are happy to be playing against two of the best teams next and we need to work this week to prepare in the best manner.”
However, one major plus point for the Toffees has been the continued progress made by 21-year-old forward Richarlison, who netted in both of the last two stalemates.
The Brazil international could help the visitors secure a third straight 1-1 draw at this venue, with 13/1 for that correct score added to our Man City vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Bernard, Walcott, Richarlison.
Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is a doubt due to what has been described as “a small problem”.
