Man City vs Everton Premier League predictions: tips, odds and team news
Manchester City will be hoping to keep their Premier League title challenge going when they host Everton on Saturday at 12:30pm (UK time).
Man City vs Everton odds
*Odds correct as of 07:00 on February 9
Man City are searching for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title, but they aren’t having it all their way. The Citizens are currently two points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, albeit with a game in hand. They suffered a bit of a rocky patch with defeats to Wolves, Arsenal and Aston Villa, and dropped points again before Christmas in a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace. But since that game, Man City have been perfect, winning their past four in the Premier League — taking confidence from being crowned world champions.
Everton, meanwhile, will be hoping for a shock result to aid their own safety hopes. The Toffees have won enough points to be 12th in the Premier League, winning eight games and drawing five this season. However, their 10-point deduction leaves Everton in the relegation zone, one point behind Luton. Sean Dyche’s side have been suffering of late, winless in their past six, but they secured a dramatic point against Tottenham last time out thanks to a very late Jarrad Branthwaite equaliser to make it three straight draws in the competition.
It will be a tough ask for Everton to end their winless streak this weekend however, with Man City unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League games against Everton (W11 D2) and Everton failing to win any of their last 12 visits to the Etihad Stadium (D5 L7). City have also lost just one of their last 35 Premier League home games (W29 D5), and are unbeaten in 21 (W17 D4), while they haven’t lost any of their last 23 Premier League games against sides in the relegation zone (W21 D2).

Man City are on a winning run but they have been leaky in defence. The Citizens have conceded in five of their last six Premier League games, including against Everton in December. At the other end of the pitch, Man City are averaging 6.76 shots on target per game in the Premier League this season, the second-most in the division.
