Everton vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the other semi-finals of Capital One Cup, Everton take on Manchester City. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for this game.
Everton play solid this season in Premier League, but their recent performance is not at the high level. In the last six leagues matches they have managed to win only once, but despite that fact they will be fully motivated to make good result against Manchester City. Without any doubt Romelu Lukaku, the current top scorer in Premier league with 15 goals, will be the most dangerous player for City defenders. Everton have one of the best attacks, they scored 36 goals this season, but their main problem is very shaky defence. Home side conceded 29 goals in their 20 matches this season. Interesting fact about home team is that they scored at least one goal in their last 13 matches in all competition and they could be very dangerous for Pellegrini’s side.
Manchester City are one of the main candidates for the title this season. They have only 3 points less than Arsenal and it looks reachable for them. Their main goal is the title in Premier League, but they want to win as many trophies as possible this season, including this one in Capital One Cup. Interesting is a fact that these two teams will meet again for few days in Premier League, but at Etihad Stadium. Man City had few very hard matches against very strong teams such as Arsenal, Leicester City and Watford and they took only 4 of possible 9 points. The match against Everton will be another test for visitors, but without any doubt they are favorites to reach the final of this competition.

Everton vs Manchester City Prediction
Visitors are favorites to win this game, but I can’t underestimate home team. They are very unpredictable in the attack and if they score early they can make very good result against favorites. However, I expect very interesting and open match between Everton vs Manchester City and at least three goals.
