Manchester City will entertain Everton at the Etihad Stadium this Sunday as both sides look to go all out for the win in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s side managed to earn a 2-0 victory over Manchester United before the international break. However, the Toffees were not able to get the better of Tottenham Hotspur as they were held to a 0-0 draw in their last league outing.
Pep Guardiola will once again set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could be forced to make a few changes to his first XI for this match. The Spanish head coach will ask his players to enjoy more of the ball and orchestrate enough goal-scoring opportunities to win this game.
Rafael Benitez will opt for a 4-3-3 formation as well and has a few injury concerns to cope with this weekend. The Toffees boss will instruct his men to soak in all the Man City pressure and try to expose their defensive weaknesses on the counter.
Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Cole Palmer are all major doubts for this contest. Kevin De Bruyne (Covid-19) and Ferran Torres (foot injury) will definitely miss this weekend’s clash.
Manchester City Predicted XI
Ederson, Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, Silva, Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
Tom Davies (knee), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (thigh/toe), Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot), Yerry Mina (hamstring) and Andre Gomes (calf) will be sidelined for this game. Mason Holgate won’t available for selection as he is serving his three-match ban after getting sent off versus Tottenham before the international break.
Everton Predicted XI
Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Townsend, Delph, Allan, Gordon, Richarlison, Gray
Bernardo Silva was enjoying a good run of form before the international break, so we can expect him to be eager to put in another productive display this weekend. Joao Cancelo will carry a lot of creative burden for the Mancunian giants from left-back. Gabriel Jesus needs to be at the top of his game as he will get the responsibility to lead the line for the home side up top.
Richarlison will need to have a good game if the Toffees are to have any chance of claiming something from this game. Both Andros Townsend and Anthony Gordon has to figure out a way to give a good account of themselves out on the wings so that they can hurt the Man City defence on the counter.
