Everton vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
Everton looked better at home under Lampard, winning both of his matches in charge against Brentford in the FA Cup and Leeds in the league. Still, they will need a significant improvement if they are going to trouble the reigning champions. Everton has struggled when defending set-pieces this season and has conceded ten goals from dead-ball situations, with only Leeds United, Leicester City, and Crystal Palace (all on 13) worse in this area. Allan plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Demarai Gray is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Fabian Delph (Unknown Injury), Yerry Mina (Thigh Problems), and Tom Davies (Knee Injury) will not be able to play for Everton coach Frank Lampard.
It appeared the title race was over just a few weeks ago when City had built a 12-point lead at the top, but fast-forward to this weekend, and they are just three points clear of second-placed Liverpool. With the Reds not in league action this weekend because of their involvement in Sunday’s League Cup final, Pep Guardiola’s side has the opportunity to extend their advantage to six points and give themselves some breathing space. The reigning champions go up against an Everton side who are still adapting to Frank Lampard’s methods and are firmly involved in the battle to avoid dropping down to the Championship, with the Merseyside outfit just two points above the bottom three. Phil Foden shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. The Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match, thanks to a completely healthy group available to select from.
