Everton v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 31st March 5.30pm
With back to back wins just before the international break, Everton’s future looks a little more promising. That may all come crashing down when they host Man City on Saturday evening. But still, the Toffees are one of the few sides to have taken points off the citizens this season having played out a 1-1 draw at the Etihad earlier in the season.
Everton v Manchester City Betting Odds*
Man City 1/3, Draw 4/1, Everton 8/1* (Betting Odds taken at 05:47 a.m. on March 26th, 2018)
Everton News and Form
The Toffees have won their last two games, taking down Brighton and Stoke and they have some good home form going as well. They have won their last three at Goodison Park, scoring at least two goals nine each of those and they have lost just one home game in their last ten (W7 D2 L1). So they have been pretty solid at home it’s fair to say, they just haven’t backed it up out on the road. Everton have averaged 1.6 goals per home game this term and have hit the back of the net in each of their last four. So that all makes for good reading except for the fact that they are taking on a brilliant Manchester City side here. But it may just be worth backing the Toffees to at least get on the scoresheet given their solid home form and both teams to score at bet365 is at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 05:42 p.m. on March 26th, 2018). The half time draw may well appeal too as the Toffees have been level at the break in nine of their home fixtures this term. Of the goals that they have scored at home so far, they have netted 72% of them in the second half of matches.
Manchester City News and Form
Win the next two games and the title is the bag for the Citizens. They are on a four-match winning streak at the moment and are W6 D1 in their last seven. Out on the road, their record is W12 D2 L1 and the only blip was that loss on their last trip to Merseyside as Liverpool beat them 4-3 at Anfield in the middle of January. City have averaged 2.3 goals per away game this season and they have conceded just the ten goals on the road as well, well under a goal per game on average. The Citizens have scored in each of their last nine league outings now and a win in this one sets up a title-winning shot in their following game against rivals Manchester United. Sergio Aguero is the first goalscorer favourite but David Silva has scored three in his last two away games and it at 9/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 05:42 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. Manchester City have scored in 93% of their away matches this season and are likely to find the back of the net one way or another. They will want the league title wrapped up as quickly as possible so they can fully focus on the Champions League.
Everton v Manchester City Head to Head
There was the 1-1 draw between them earlier this season and Everton are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games against City (W1 D2) and have lost just one of their last six against him in all competitions (W2 D3 L1). So they actually have a decent bit of form. They have won just one of their last four at home in the top flight against the Citizens though (D1 L2) but that win was in last season’s corresponding fixture, a big 4-0 one at that.
Who will win – Everton v Manchester City Predictions
Manchester City should be good for the win on Merseyside. They know the title is close now and they can deliver a little revenge in this one. Everton have improved their fortunes recently, but aren’t likely to be good enough to stop City.
