Everton vs Man City build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It doesn’t feel too long ago that Everton were being considered part of the Premier League title race, leading the table in the early stages of the season and holding second as recent as Boxing Day. They fell away once again due a poor run of form and currently sit seventh, having lost to relegation-battling Fulham at the weekend.
However, they cannot be counted out of the Champions League race, only five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games in hand over the Blues, including this tough tie against Man City. The Toffees haven’t won against Man City since 2017, when they were on the right end of a 4-0 rout at Goodison Park, drawing one and losing five of the six games since.
Their chances of a big win are very slim, particularly with Man City in their devastating form. A slow start to the season had some ruling Man City out of the title race but, with 15 games to go, the Etihad looks to be the only destination for the Premier League come May.
Guardiola’s men are currently on a ridiculous 16-game winning run across all competitions, a record for an English top-flight side. Eleven of those have come in the Premier League with West Brom the last team to take points away from Man City in mid-December, and Tottenham the latest to fall. At the point of the West Brom result, Man City were ninth but they are now enjoying their sixth matchday as league leaders.
- Everton (vs Fulham): Olsen; Coleman, Godfrey, Holgate, Digne; Gomes, Davies, Doucoure; Rodriguez, Sigurdsson, Richarlison.
- Man City (vs Tottenham): Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri; Sterling, Silva, Gundogan*, Foden; Jesus.
James Rodriguez picked up a knock in the defeat to Fulham but will recover in time for the visit of Man City, as will Allan and Jordan Pickford. However, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still not ready after an injury against Tottenham last week.
Man City will be without Ilkay Gundogan following his injury against Tottenham, though the German isn’t expected to be out for too long. Nathan Ake is also absent, but Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Ruben Dias could be in contention to play some part.

Players to watch:
- Everton: Unfortunately the Toffees have been heavily reliant on the goals of Dominic Calvert-Lewin to get them through tough spells and, with the Englishman injured (taking his 13 goals with him), someone needs to step in. One possible candidate is Gylfi Sigurddsson who was played as the most advanced Everton man against Fulham at the weekend. While the Icelandic midfield is used to playing high up and through the middle, he is normally in the supporting role, rather than the expected finisher. He was busy, taking three shots (more than any other Everton player) and hitting the target once, but it did hamper his creativity with no one to get onto the end of his passes. Ancelotti will need to work out how to play Sigurdsson here if Everton are to break Man City’s winning run.
- Man City: With goalscoring hero Gundogan injured, there will be added pressure on Raheem Sterling to get amongst the goals at Goodison Park. But it’s a responsibility he can certainly deal with. A lot is often said about Sterling and his goalscoring abilities, sometimes going through hot and cold streaks, even experiencing the extremes on both ends of the spectrum. At the moment, he is in hot form, scoring four goals in his past five games across all competitions, with all four coincidentally coming away from home. Sterling has also scored in two of his past three visits to Goodison Park having previously gone four without finding the net for Liverpool and Man City.
