Everton vs Man City: Match Summary

17th-placed Everton will host Manchester City on Sunday. The visitors will look to make it 11 wins in a row in the Premier League and extend their lead at the top of the table. Meanwhile, the home team will look to make it two wins in a row after having won their last league outing. A positive result is a must for Everton as they look to maintain their position outside of the relegation zone.

Everton stunned Brighton & Hove Albion in their recent Premier League fixture with a dominant display, led by Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dwight McNeil, who both scored braces. Although Everton had been winless in their previous seven games, they proved their critics wrong with an emphatic win.

However, Everton still find themselves in 17th place, and a loss to Manchester City could see them slip back into the relegation zone. Despite this, Everton will be buoyed by their recent form and will look to continue their scoring run as they face the league leaders.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are coming off the back of a Champions League draw against Real Madrid. But they have also had some nervy moments in the Premier League, particularly in their 2-1 victory over Leeds United.

They currently hold a one-point lead over Arsenal in the league table and will be looking to extend that gap with a win over Everton.

In the reverse fixture, the two teams played out a 1-1 draw. Although Manchester City dropped points against Everton earlier in the season, they have won their last five games at Goodison Park.
