Everton will lock horns with Manchester City at Goodison Park on Saturday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The Toffees will be heading into the contest on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Southampton, whereas Pep Guardiola’s men recorded a 3-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on February 19.

Team News

Gabriel Jesus has missed Manchester City’s last five matches due to a muscular problem, but he is expected to be back in the mix for the upcoming contest. There’s positive news regarding Jack Grealish as well, with the England international expected to return after missing out against Norwich City, Sporting Lisbon and Tottenham Hotspur due to a shin problem.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as John Stones looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence 

Ederson Moraes will operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

John Stones will form the centre-half partnership with Ruben Dias at the heart of City’s backline.

Kyle Walker will start at the right-back position, whereas Joao Cancelo will fill in on the other flank as the right-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield 

Rodri might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back-four.

Bernardo Silva will slot into the central midfield role, whereas Kevin de Bruyne is expected to start in the attacking midfield position. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal scoring chances for the front men.

Ilkay Gundogan will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could come on to make a cameo appearance in the second half.

Attack 

Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Jack Grealish will lead the line for Manchester City this weekend. The England international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Everton defence that conceded seven goals in their last five games across all competitions.
