Everton vs Man City prediction

Manchester City are coming off an 8-0 thrashing of Watford last weekend for their trip to Goodison Park on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola did rotate his squad for the comfortable win at Preston North End in the EFL Cup midweek.

Everton were the only team to start the season with back-to-back clean sheets but have not kept one since. In fact, they have looked very poor defensively under Marco Silva, who heads into the weekend under a lot of pressure. The Toffees have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four, losing three.

Manchester City could be eight points behind leaders Liverpool at the start of kickoff and many would start to rule them out of the title race if they don’t pick up three points on Merseyside in the Premier League’s evening kickoff.

With the form the Citizens’ attack produced against Watford last weekend they will have too much for Everton’s fragile defence to stop. From Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, Guardiola’s side have too much going for them.
