Team News

Man City
  • Eliaquim Mangala is not eligible to play due to the terms in his loan agreement, although the Frenchman is injured anyway.
  • Ashley Williams serves the final match of a three-game suspension this weekend, while James McCarthy, Maarten Stekelenburg and Gylfi Sigurdsson are still sidelines.
  • Everton are sweating on the fitness of Idrissa Gueye and will give him every chance to prove his availability for this match.
  • Mason Holgate underwent ankle surgery earlier this week and won't feature here, but Tom Davies has recovered from a neck injury.
  • Sergio Aguero was not fit enough to play for Argentina during the international break and may not be risked by Pep Guardiola this weekend.
  • Benjamin Mendy is closing in on a return to full fitness and could make the bench on Saturday night. Fabian Delph is also a doubt for the away side.
  • Nicolas Otamendi, Vincent Kompany and Aymeric Laporte vye for two spots at centre-back, but concussion rules John Stones out.


  • Despite the criticism of Sam Allardyce at Everton, the Toffees would be sixth in the Premier League if the table started when the former England manager was appointed.
  • Manchester City's lead at the top of the league may be cut to 13 points by the time they play Everton.
  • Of the 117 clubs Pep Guardiola has faced in his managerial career, he has only failed to beat three of them: Celtic, Wigan and Everton. In fact, he has not won any of three meetings against Everton - his worst record against an opponent.
  • Looking back, Everton's draw with City earlier in the season is one of the real shocks of the campaign. It would be a real surprise if they can take points off City again.

  • MAN CITY Ederson, Walker, Kompany (C), Otamendi, Laporte, Fernandinho, Silva, De Bruyne, Sane, Sterling, Jesus SUBS Bravo, Danilo, Gündogan, Bernardo. Adarabioyo, Zinchenko, Nmecha

  • Tosun to score @5.00 ? he is become better under Allardyce.

  • 0:1 / 0:2

  • The big question: Is Everton as good as Wigan and Basel? The world holds its breath...

  • 2-1 ..COYB

  • @Salek lolz embarassed ?

  • Everton win.

  • Interesting stats but one big error... Everton did not keep a clean sheet against City this season in the Premier League. The teams drew 1-1 at The Etihad with Raheem Sterling scoring for City after Wayne Rooney had opened the scoring. Crystal Palace remains the only team to prevent a City scoring in the league this season...
