Sean Dyche of Everton will be without Amadou Onana (leg injury), Andros Townsend (cruciate ligament injury), Andy Lonergan (knee issues), and Seamus Coleman (knee injury).
We believe that this time, the Toffees are likely to choose a 4-3-3 system with the following players: Jordan Pickford, Nathan Patterson, James Tarkowski, Yerry Mina, Vitali Mykolenko, James Garner, Idrissa Gueye, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Alex Iwobi, D. Calvert-Lewin, and Dwight McNeil.
The Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola has absolutely no reservations about his or her fitness going into this match thanks to a fully healthy squad that is open to choose from.
Ederson, Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, Manuel Akanji, Rico Lewis, Ilkay Gündogan, Riyad Mahrez, Julián lvarez, Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, and Erling Haaland are likely to start the game for The Citizens in a 3-2-4-1 formation. In our opinion, Everton is capable of scoring a goal against this Manchester City squad, but it probably won’t be enough.
