Manchester City, are coming off a solid 2-0 win over Sheffield and are looking to keep the pace for Champions League positioning.

Everton meanwhile are coming in a relative high with new manager Carlo Ancelotti and a victory over Newcastle away from home.

Both teams coming with positive results should mean a motivated match up and the Ancelotti v Pep story line should be interesting as well.

Team News

Ederson is available to play after serving a one-game ban.

Gabriel Jesus has recovered from illness and is fit to take part.

David Silva and John Stones continue to improve but face late fitness tests.

Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane remain sidelined with injury.

Alex Iwobi and Andre Gomes are ruled out for Everton and Morgan Schneirderlin is rated doubtful.

One To Watch

Moise Kean has not been a regular for Everton, but under Ancelotti he started last game and is raring to prove the managers confidence in him. His prospects are tantalizing for Everton fans.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-2 Everton
