The Premier League season is getting ever closer to reaching its interesting conclusion and the title race could not be any more exciting. Manchester City are chasing Liverpool and they face Everton on Wednesday evening.


  • Everton have been disappointing this term and their fans have regularly voiced their opinion on matters at the club. However, they are still inside the top half in 9th place but have won just two of their last six league games and have been knocked out of the FA Cup by Millwall. They were comfortably beaten by a direct rival last time out as they lost 3-1 to Wolves at home.
  • Man City have replicated some of their title-winning form this season but still find themselves three points off top spot which is occupied by Liverpool. Although, the Reds have dropped points in their last two games (against Leicester and West Ham) whilst Pep Guardiola’s side made no mistake against Arsenal in their last match, beating them 3-1.
  • Richarlison has been Everton’s star man this term and he has already notched 10 league goals, making him their leading scorer.
  • Sergio Aguero managed a hat-trick against Arsenal and that took his tally up to 14 for the season, only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah have more.


The results between these two teams in the last few years haven’t been as one-sided as many people would predict. In the last five meetings, Man City have won two, lost one and drawn two and both of those victories came in the last two by a 3-1 scoreline. Both teams have scored in four of the five matches whilst over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of them.


The hosts can leapfrog Watford with three points and increase the pressure on Wolves in 7th but they’ll certainly be up against it without some of their best players. Leighton Baines, Yerry Mina, Idrissa Gueye and Phil Jagielka are all expected to miss out.

Man City can actually go back ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table with a win and they only have two injury worries. Vincent Kompany will not feature while Benjamin Mendy faces a late fitness test.

Everton aren’t exactly in the best form and Man City seem to be desperate to overtake Liverpool which I fully expect them to do. The 3-1 scoreline seen in the last two meetings could very easily be replicated and at a good price, it might be worth backing. A win for the visitors and over 2.5 goals also looks a good shout in a game that will be played at full tempo.
