Man City vs Everton: Predictions
The newly crowned Premier League champions welcome fans back to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday for their clash against the Toffees in their final game before their Champions League clash against Chelsea. Pep Guardiola’s side suffered a shock defeat during the week against Brighton & Hove Albion and they’ll be without Joao Cancelo this weekend following his red card on Tuesday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side were able to put their disappointing defeat against the league’s bottom side, Sheffield United, behind them on Wednesday with their narrow 1-0 victory over Wolves. The Toffees’ hopes of a place in the Europa League are now relying on a small miracle, however, they could still yet finish in the newly former Europa Conference League depending on Tottenham’s result against Leicester City.
Given City face their first-ever Champions League final just six days after their game against Ancelotti’s side it will be interesting to see how Guardiola sets his side out. It has been seen in the past when a side has a big final coming up their players sometimes take their eyes off the ball and with the league already wrapped up, could we see City with one eye on the final?
Man City vs Everton: Match Stats
Sunday’s game will mark Sergio Aguero’s final game in the Premier League for City. The Argentine striker has announced he will depart the club this summer and will certainly have his eyes on one final goal in front of the City fans. The 32-year-old has netted 182 goals in his 274 Premier League appearances and there is nothing that he will want more than one last goal in front of those 10,000 City fans.
No Everton player has made more successful tackles this season than their summer signing, Allan. The Brazilian midfielder has struggled with injuries at times this season with the 30-year-old having only made 23 appearances in the league this season. However, despite his time on the sidelines, the midfielder has racked up 76 tackles this campaign.

Once Man City’s bogey team, Everton have lost their last seven meetings against the Premier League champions, including four by a 3-1 scoreline. That result was replicated in their last meeting in February, with goals from Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva enough to seal the points for Guardiola’s men.
