Manchester City vs Everton: Match Preview and Prediction
Manchester City vs Everton: Manchester City enters this game riding a nine-game winning streak in all competitions. In ten of Manchester City’s last twelve Premier League games, both teams have scored. Despite playing in just 17 games this season, Erling Haaland is the co-top scorer in the league.
On Saturday afternoon at Etihad Stadium, teams from the opposing half of the Premier League standings will take the pitch for Gameweek No. 24. Manchester City will aim to win ten straight games in all competitions. They are the clear favourites to win against Everton, who are fighting for relegation.
Last round, City won the Premier League. They gained from Liverpool’s Arsenal loss. On Monday night at Brentford, Pep Guardiola’s team returned. With a game against Liverpool, they trail the leaders by two points. Phil Foden’s hat-trick at Gtech Community Stadium on Monday stole the show. After extensive injuries, Erling Haaland started his first game.
Everton, who have lost six straight Premier League games, will visit the Etihad. Jarrad Branthwaite’s late equaliser gave them a valuable point against Tottenham on Saturday. Head coach Sean Dyche was happy with his team’s offence. After three league games without a goal, winning two against Spurs would boost the club’s spirits.
Manchester City vs Everton: Betting Analysis
Manchester City has dominated Everton in recent matches. In 14 matches against the Toffees, they had won 13, lost 1, and drawn 1. Citizens won 3-1 at Goodison on Boxing Day in the rematch. No team has scored more than twice in seven encounters.
Man City has won nine straight games in all competitions, and they are flying high. In the league, they have a five-game winning streak. Still, ten of Manchester City’s previous twelve Premier League games resulted in goals for both sides. The defence of Pep Guardiola’s team has not been as strong as it has been in previous years.
It would not come as a surprise to see Everton on target at the Etihad, given that they amassed over 2.00 xG in the home draw against Tottenham seven days prior. Man City is still, obviously, a huge favourite to win. This means that, with 2.62 odds, the best betting option is home win and both teams to score.
Erling Haaland returned to Manchester City’s starting lineup on Monday, playing 86 minutes versus Brentford. This time, the Norwegian striker missed. He is a goal machine and should have plenty of room to score up front against Everton. We’ll back Haaland at 3.00 to score the first goal.
