Everton vs Manchester City

Everton faces the daunting task of going up against Manchester City this Wednesday and will meet at Goodison Park for matchday 26 in the Premier League. Marco Silva may be in danger of losing his job as the Everton manager as his side’s recent form has been appalling and has seen them drop down into ninth. Pep’s City are still in the chase of Liverpool to try and take first place back, currently sitting just three points behind them but will have played an extra game after Wednesday night. When these sides met at the Etihad Stadium, City eased to a 3-1 victory and we are expecting another win for the away side.

Everton are in need of a confidence booster as their recent form has brought little success, but with Manchester City as their next opponents, it may be a case of damage limitation for Marco Silva, the Toffees went up against Wolves in their previous game and were outclassed and beaten 3-1. This loss for Everton marked their third defeat in five games and saw them drop down into ninth place. SkyBet has them as the clear underdogs for this fixture with odds of 7/1 to secure the three points.

If Marco Silva is to see any success on Wednesday he will need a much stronger performance from his team who have been struggling in recent games. Over the last five fixtures, they have conceded eight goals and with them going up against the highest scoring side in the league could be in serious trouble. Richarlison sits as Everton’s top goalscorer with eleven goals and Silva will be looking to him to provide the goals on Wednesday. Betway has priced the forward at 13/5 to score anytime.

Pep Guardiola will be expecting three points from his side as he continues to attempt to close the gap on Liverpool at the top of the table. After recently losing to Newcastle United, City had let Liverpool move an extra point clear but Manchester City managed to pick up a huge three points against Arsenal in their previous match. Pep’s men made light work of Everton in the first meeting, beating them 3-1. SkyBet has a repeat result priced at 10/1. City has the small price of 4/11 with Betway to secure the three points, but with a -1 handicap they ate priced at 10/11.

The Sky Blues are by far the highest scoring side in the league with 66 goals scored and you can almost guarantee them to put on a fine attacking display week in and week out. With 13 goals scored in their last five, they look in good shape for another goal fest and Bet365 has them to score over 2.5 goals at 11/10. Sergio Aguero bagged an impressive hat-trick against Arsenal and has been priced at 4/7 to add to his tally on Wednesday.
