Manchester City hosts Everton
The champion Manchester City hosts Everton at the Etihad in a game from the 21th round of the Premier League. Stay with us and our English Premier League predictions for this fixture.
Before hosting Sheffield United on Sunday Man City were third in the league with 38 points and four points behind the second Leicester City. For the Cityzens the title race is already over, just like the manager Pep Guardiola admitted, but they still have to play to keep their place in the Top 4. The season is not over for them, despite of the fact that Liverpool are looking untouchable at the top.
In their last game Man City suffered their 5th loss for the season. City visited Wolverhampton Wanderers and got beaten with 2-3, despite of the fact that they were two goals ahead with a brace from Raheem Sterling. City had to play almost the whole game with 10 men on the pitch because of Ederson’s red card in the beginning. Playing with 10 men against Wolves is always a complicated task.
Because of his red card Ederson won’t be avaliable against Everton. He will be replaced in the starting 11 by the substitute Claudio Bravo. Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, David Silva and Leroy Sane remain sidelined as well.
Everton are visiting the Etihad in a great mood after recording second win under the management of Carlo Ancelotti. On Saturday the Toffees visited Newcastle United and fought for a 2-1 win. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored both goals for the visitors. With this win Everton are now 10th in the league with 25 points. The improvement in Everton is obvious since Ancelotti was appointed as a manager.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Manchester City and Everton at the Etihad on Wednesday. This is going to be a great tactical duel between two legendary managers like Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti. Be sure to watch!
