Saturday’s Premier League action concludes at Goodison Park where Everton host champions elect Manchester City.

The Toffees are sitting comfortably in midtable though will still fancy their chances of finishing in seventh place, which could secure them qualification for Europe depending on the outcomes of other competitions.

They go into the game following back-to-back wins having beaten Brighton and Hove Albion and Stoke City – results that took their points tally to forty.

Idrissa Gueye is closing in on a return to action following a thigh injury and could feature though Ashley Williams misses out as he completes a three game suspension.

Cenk Tosun, who has four goals in his last three appearances in 11.5 (21/2) to open the scoring with Unibet with Theo Walcott a 15.0 (14/1) chance with several firms.

The home win is as highly priced as the 10.0 (9/1) on offer from some bookmakers with the visitors firm favourites at 1.37 (7/19) with Unibet. The draw can be backed at 5.5 (9/2) with Betfair.

Pep Guardiola’s men have pieced together four consecutive wins, and two from their next two games will see them crowned champions while as as an extra incentive, victory here will mean they can wrap this up in the Manchester derby next Saturday.

John Stones misses out against his former club after suffering concussion on international duty while Sergio Aguero, who has been out for four weeks with a knee problem may be held back with Wednesday’s Champions League quarter final first leg against Liverpool in mind.

Gabriel Jesus is 4.1 (31/10) to get the first goal of the game with Unibet, with Raheem Sterling a 6.0 (5/1) chance with William Hill.

Everton were the first and only team to take points off Manchester City until the table toppers lost to Liverpool in February.

The sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium back in August while last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a resounding 4-0 victory for the Merseyside outfit and Betfair offer a price of 1.7 (7/10) for there to be three or more goals in the game this time around.
