Everton v Manchester City Match Preview

Everton have experienced a drop in form in recent weeks with just one win in their last six matches. Their attack has remained threatening throughout and they have now scored in all of their last 13 matches but it is their defence that has been problematic so far this season which could prove their downfall again here against this Manchester City side.

This is a huge opportunity for both sides because if they can navigate their way past their opponents then they will face either Liverpool or Stoke in the final. It would give Pellegrini the chance to make it three trophies in three years and four if they can win the league too which could be enough to dismiss the Pep Guardiola rumours.

Manchester City ended their five game win-less streak on the road last time out when two late goals saw them come from behind to win 2-1 against Watford. A draw here will probably be good enough for City because they will feel that they can beat Everton at the Etihad stadium because they have been very strong at home this season.

Everton Latest Team News:

Phil Jagielka is likely to make a return in this match after making the bench for the game against Tottenham on Sunday. Bryan Oviedo and Steven Pienaar are nearing recovery whilst James McCarthy and Tyias Browning will still be unavailable.

Manchester City Latest Team News:

Manchester City will be missing just Vincent Kompany and Samir Nasri coming into this match but Pellegrini may well make a few changes to the starting eleven that faced Watford on Saturday including returns to the team for Wilfried Bony, Jesus Navas and Martin Demichellis.

Everton v Manchester City Head to Head Statistics

23/08/15 BPL Everton v Manchester City 0 : 2
10/01/15 BPL Everton v Manchester City 1 : 1
06/12/14 BPL Manchester City v Everton 1 : 0
03/05/14 BPL Everton v Manchester City 2 : 3
05/10/13 BPL Manchester City v Everton 3 : 1

These two sides have met 165 times over the years and there has been nothing to separate up until this points as both teams share 62 wins.

But in the 83 meetings in which Everton have hosted the match, Everton have been far the better side with 43 wins to Manchester City’s 17.

Using head to head statistics alone it would suggest that Everton have the better chance of taking all three points in this one due to their home advantage.

Everton Recent Form

03/01/16 BPL Everton v Tottenham 1 : 1
28/12/15 BPL Everton v Stoke 3 : 4
26/12/15 BPL Newcastle v Everton 0 : 1
19/12/15 BPL Everton v Leicester 2 : 3
12/12/15 BPL Norwich v Everton 1 : 1

Everton are in poor form heading into this tough fixture with just one win in their last five and they have conceded nine in the process which doesn’t bode well when coming up against Manchester City.

Manchester City Recent Form

02/01/16 BPL Watford v Manchester City 1 : 2
29/12/15 BPL Leicester v Manchester City 0 : 0
26/12/15 BPL Manchester City v Sunderland 4 : 1
21/12/15 BPL Arsenal v Manchester City 2 : 1
12/12/15 BPL Manchester City v Swansea 2 : 1

Manchester City are in decent form with three wins, a draw and a loss in their last five but they will have been disappointed to lose to Arsenal at the Emirates.

Everton v Manchester City Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 165 matches that have taken place between these two sides, there has been a total of 455 goals meaning that there has been an average goals per game of 2.76.

And in the 83 meetings in which Everton have been the home side, there has been 233 goals scored meaning that there has been an average goals per game of 2.81.

Both sets of data suggest that the game on Wednesday evening will have at least two goals in what should be an entertaining fixture.

Everton v Manchester City Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think this will be a high scoring meeting because both sides are lethal when attacking but also both struggle to keep clean sheets. Everton have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 home matches whilst City have kept three in 11 away matches which all came in bore draws.

Also, Everton will need to go for the win in this match because they will find it much tougher at the Etihad in the second leg and that should allow City to break fast with the pace of Raheem Sterling.

And as for my saver I have decided to go for Wilfried Bony to score in this match because I expect Pellegrini to rest Sergio Aguero in this match and Bony has done well in recent appearances. I would wait for the team news to place this bet and if Aguero is starting then place it on him to score anytime.
