Manchester City vs Everton Betting Tips
Manchester City welcome Everton on the first day of 2020. Both teams have won in the previous round, which was only a few days ago. They might be tired, but a lot is at stake. With a win, Manchester City could get back to second place in the table. For Everton, a good result would mean that the Toffees are on the right track after appointing Carlo Ancelotti as their coach.
Speaking of the devil, Ancelotti has been in charge for two rounds already and he has a 100% score. His team has won against Burnley in his Everton managerial debut on Boxing Day, followed by a win over Newcastle on weekend. His toughest challenge so far comes on Wednesday when Everton travel to Manchester to take on the reigning Premier League champions.
The title might still be in their possession, but the chances are that Manchester City will not be able to win the Premier League this season. This team is trailing by 14 points behind the table-leaders Liverpool, who have also played one game fewer, meaning that the point gap could be even bigger.
Even the manager of Manchester City has stated that it’s very unlikely his side will be able to catch up with Liverpool. Still, this doesn’t mean they have nothing to compete for. They want to get to second place, which is currently occupied by Leicester City.
Last Friday, Manchester City got defeated by Wolves, but on weekend, they beat Sheffield United, showing they are not in a crisis. They looked pretty good in that game and are coming into Wednesday’s match with their heads held high. Of course, this is not going to be an easy game, considering that the Toffees are now a very tough side with a really good manager.

Manchester City Form and Latest News
The worst thing about Manchester City this season is that they’re very leaky at the back. This team has allowed a total of 23 goals this season, which makes them share the fifth place as the best defensive team. The reason for that is that their arguably best defender Laporte is injured.
On the bright side, Manchester City have been really good in the attack. With 54 goals in 20 matches, they’re the top-scoring side in the Premier League.
Everton Form and Latest News
The Toffees used to be terrible under Marco Silva, but they started playing much better since he’s been sacked. They are without a defeat for nearly a month, their last loss happening in the Merseyside Derby played at Anfield.
Apart from being in a good form, Everton are also happy for the fact that their injury worries are almost over. They do have a couple of absentees, but they also have a very long bench, so Ancelotti should be able to pick a strong XI.
