Manchester City take on Everton as they travel to Goodison Park on Sunday for their Premier League title race. Having been held to a 1-1 draw by Real Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final tie, the Sky Blues will be hoping for an improved performance in their upcoming match.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for a 3-2-4-1 formation and is expected to make several changes to the starting XI to rest his key players. Julian Alvarez, Rico Lewis, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Aymeric Laporte are all set to start this weekend.

Ederson will feature in goal for Man City after conceding one goal in his last outing. Ruben Dias will resume his defensive partnership with Aymeric Laporte and Manuel Akanji at the centre of Guardiola’s defence as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.

Kyle Walker will be named on the bench as they wait to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.


Rodri and Rico Lewis will operate in the central areas as they try to dominate the possession in the middle of the park and shield the back three in defence.

Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden will operate just ahead of them as they look to engineer enough chances for Man City to win this contest. Riyad Mahrez will replace Bernardo Silva in the right-wing position while Jack Grealish starts on the opposite flank; both will have to provide support from the wide areas and cut into the penalty box to create chances in front of the goal.

Kalvin Phillips will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.


Erling Haaland will lead the Mancunian giants‘ line on the pitch’s attacking third. The Norway international will continue his rich run of form and fancy his chances of finding the back of the net.
