Manchester City vs Everton Preview

Saturday’s Premier League action kicks of at the Etihad Stadium where Manchester City take on Everton.

The champions were beaten for the first time in the league this season last weekend after losing 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge though they did come from behind to beat Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on Wednesday evening – a result that saw them finish top of their group.

They will reclaim top spot if they avoid defeat here, with leaders Liverpool not playing until Sunday afternoon.

Sergio Aguero could be available after missing the last four games with a groin problem while Danilo and Fernandinho may also be fit though David Silva misses out with a hamstring injury and the game is likely to come too soon for Kevin De Bruyne.

Aguero, who has scored five goals in three league games against teams managed by Marco Silva is favourite to net first at 3.6 (13/5) with Riyad Mahrez a 7.5 (13/2) chance with Unibet.

The home win is 1.23 (3/13) with Unibet, with the visitors as highly priced as the 14.5 (27/2) offered by the same firm. The draw can be backed at 7.5 (13/5) with Bet Victor.

A superb stoppage time free kick from Lucas Digne saw the Toffees rescue a point against Silva’s former side Watford on Monday evening with the point moving them to within two of sixth place Manchester United.

A win here would see them leapfrog the Red Devils, who travel to Anfield on Sunday.

Idrissa Gueye was substituted on against the Hornets so may miss out here though the Merseyside outfit have no other fresh injury concerns.

Top scorer Richarlison is widely available at 13.0 (12/1) to get the first goal of the game with Gylfi Sigurdsson a 17.0 (16/1) chance with Unibet.

Last season’s corresponding fixture ended all-square to make it three draws in a row when these sides have met at this ground.

You can back both teams to score this time around at 1.8 (4/5) with Betfred, while a variety of firms offer 3.4 (12/5) for there to be fewer than three goals scored in the game.
