In the second round of the English Premier League, Manchester City will play Everton at the Etihad on Saturday. The host group has appreciated one more strong beginning to their season and stayed in the race for the Head Association title.
The Cityzens were three goals ahead of Leeds United when their opponents scored a consolation goal on Wednesday night, after returning to competitive play with a 3-2 victory over Liverpool in the Carabao Cup. With 35 points from 15 games, Manchester City sits second in the league standings.
They will try to close the gap on Arsenal, who currently lead the pile by five points, on Saturday. Everton, on the other hand, has had a difficult season and is currently just outside the drop zone with the season’s halfway point quickly approaching. In their most recent league match, they lost to Everton 2-1. Before their opponents scored a late winner, they appeared to have earned a point.
The city has won three of its last four games and has won seven of its last eight in all competitions. They will enter the weekend match as clear favorites, having won all but one of their 13 home games this season. Everton has not won in their last five competitive games and has lost their last four. They should lose this game because they have only won one away league game all season.
Prediction: Manchester City 3-0 Everton
Everton and City have had 143 meetings together. While the visitors have won 68 of those games, the hosts have won 78 of those games. Between the two teams, 47 draws have occurred. Since 2017, the home team has won their last ten games in this matchup. In their last 11 games against this opponent, the visitors have not kept a clean sheet.
The city has the best hostile record in the Head Association this season with an objective count of 43. This season, the Toffees have scored 12 league goals. Only two teams have scored less, and both of them are currently in the bottom three. This season, Pep Guardiola’s team and league leaders Arsenal have combined for the league’s highest home point total of 21.
