The Goodison Park in Liverpool will host the exciting fixture between Everton and Manchester City. The game will be played on Sundayafternoon, in the Premier League.
Everton's home record has been quite impressive this season. They have gone unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 games, with their last win coming against Southampton by 3-0. Moreover, they've been scoring at least two goals in five of their last six fixtures. Currently, they are sitting at the seventh place with 30 points. Romelu Lukaku has been their key play-maker, with 11 goals and four assists so far.
On the other hand, City are at the fourth place, but are still in the race for the top. With points difference being next to nil, all they need is a win by big margin. Before the break, they welcomed Burnley to Etihad Stadium, where they won by 2-1.
When the two sides met in the first leg of the fixture, the game ended in a 1-1 draw. This time around as well, we can certainly expect a similar result. Everton are quite strong at home and have been able to retain the strong sides to either a draw or defeat them. City can certainly expect heavy resistance from the opposition. A win here will be a difficult call for them.
Everton will host the in form Manchester City squad at Goodison Park on Sunday, August 23, 2015. Kick off for this game is scheduled at 14:00 hours BST.
Everton have slow and steady found their rhythm as they beat Southampton 3-0 last week. Romelu Lukaku was in find form and has scored in each of his appearances this season. He will be itching to prove his worth in front of home fans against a top side. Ross Barkley has also found his touch having being involved in three out of the five goals that Everton have scored this season. If Roberto Martinez and his men find their true potential, then they are more than capable of gaining a few points off Manchester City in this home game.
Manchester City have hit the ground running. They have scored three goals and conceded none in the the first two games of the season. Sergio Aguero was on target last week and will be the biggest threat to the Evertonian defence. Yaya Toure's physical presence and the speed and trickery of David Silva and Raheem Silva could be a lot for the Everton defence to handle. Overall, City will surely look to make it three in three and Manuel Pelligrini's men are more than capable of scoring a few goals on their day.
Can Vincent Kompany make it three goals in three? Well, we will have to wait and watch. Manchester City should comfortably win this game by a couple of goals.
The Toffees host The Citizens at Goodison Park on Saturday, January 10that 15:00 hours BST.
Everton have not been in great form recently losing five out of their last six games. Roberto Martinez will have to motivate his players in order to gain a victory over the juggernaut, Manchester City, this weekend. Romelu Lukaku who scored the late equaliser against West Ham United in the FA Cup third round match will lead the front line. Manchester City target, Ross Barkley, will also be a threat in midfield.
Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City will look to get the double on Everton this season. City defeated Everton, 1-0, in the reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium, courtesy of a Yaya Toure penalty but the Ivorian will miss out this time as he will be returning home to play in the African Cup of Nations. The in-form David Silva will, however, make sure that City get the three points. Super sub Frank Lampard might also feature in this game. Stevan Jovetic will be leading the attack as Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko are still nursing their injuries.
Though Everton have home advantage in this game, Manchester City look more likely to get all 3 points and hence pressurize Chelsea at the top of the league.
In Saturday’s biggest match, Everton will face Manchester City in the English Premier League at Goodison Park.
Everton’s 2-0 away loss to Southampton consigned them to the fifth position in the league table with 69 points from 36 matches. The home side has to win their last two matches to have any chance of playing in the Champions League next season with Arsenal four points above them in the fourth position. Roberto Martinez’s side has enjoyed a commendable run of wins in the Premier League but face their toughest test yet in the form of title challengers Manchester City.
City were given a ray of hope and the reigns of the Premier League horse when league leaders Liverpool succumbed to a shock 2-0 loss against second placed Chelsea last weekend. This stroke of luck meant that if Manchester City can win their remaining three matches, their superior goal difference would lead them to the Premier League trophy.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini knows that this match means the difference between a trophyless season and Premier League silver and would be up to the task come Saturday.
