EPL: Everton vs Man City

Manchester City are showing a relatively stable form in recent times in all competitions. Especially even though they have to play away, but coach Pep Guardiola and his team  will not have too many difficulties to beat the team that is playing badly and is also considered a favorite opponent like Everton.

Everton is in a crisis with no way out. Coach Frank Lampard’s teachers and students do not know what the smell of victory is in the past 7/8 rounds. In the last 6 matches, the home team Goodison Park received 5 defeats. With that poor form, The Toffees can hardly avoid a defeat in the reception of a very strong opponent like Manchester City at home today. It should be known that, in the previous 10 times with the Manchester team, Everton lost 9 matches.

Last season, they received a 1-3 defeat at Goodison Park. The loss of midfielder Tom Davies as well as central defenders Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina will greatly affect the home team’s defense in this match. Moreover, the home record of Frank Lampard’s teachers and students is very bad with the last 4/6 defeats.

Manchester City entered the trip to Everton with a relatively stable performance. The team under the direction of coach Pep Guardiola is unbeaten in 8 of the last 9 outings and won 7 times. Their only defeat was at home against nasty rivals Tottenham. In particular, when they have to play far away, The Citizens always proves to be extremely scary. Specifically, the Etihad Stadium team is unbeaten in all 7 previous matches at home and conceded only 3 goals.

Notably, the last 4 encounters with Everton away from home, Manchester City won. Despite losing the main striker Gabriel Jesus as well as the most expensive contract of the transfer window last summer, Jack Grealish, but The Citizens still have many other dangerous spears such as Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and especially talent. young Phil Foden, who has 6 goals in the English Premier League this season.
