Everton – Manchester City
Everton hosts the champion Manchester City at the Goodison Park in a game from the seventh round of the Premier League. Stay with us, because now we are going to take a lokok at this fixture in our English Premier League predictions. Are you ready?
Despite of their hopes, nothing looks different for Everton compared to the previous season. Despite of having a very good squad, the Toffees remain really unconsistent in the league. Right now they are 14th in the league with 7 points and an average record of two wins, one draw and three defeats.
Everton lost two of their last three matches in the Premier League, so we can’t say that their manager Marco Silva can feel safe for his job at the moment. We won’t be surprised if Silva gets sacked if Everton loses against Man City on Saturday.
During the week Everton enjoyed some success, though. The club progress in the Carabao Cup, beating Sheffield Wednesday away from home. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored both goals for the visitors.
Because of two mistakes they already did, Manchester City are now five points behind the leader Liverpool in the Premier League standings. Of course, it’s too early to write them off for the title, but it’s a fact that right now the Cityzens can’t allow any mistakes.
City won all of their last three games in all competitions, scoring 14 goals and keeping three clean sheets. This gives City some huge confidence before the trip to Goodison Park.
During the week the champions progressed in the Carabao Cup as well. City visited Preston North End and achieved a solid 3-0 win. Raheem Sterling opened the score for the visitors, while Gabriel Jesus doubled their lead. Preston North End’s Ryan Ledson scored himself an own goal.
In our English Premier League predictions we believe that Manchester City will get the win against Everton at the Goodison Park. It might not be easy, but right now the champions are aware that there’s no room for mistake. In the same time Everton can’t find any consistency in their game.
