Preview

Pep Guardiola’s side head into Saturday’s quarter-final in impressive form, after winning 24 out of 25 games in all competitions.

Last time out in this cup saw City run out 3-1 winners away at Swansea City.

The Toffees come into the game on the back of a mixed run of form, after winning three and losing three of their last six games.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side entered the quarter finals after a 5-4 home win over Tottenham Hotspur in the previous round.

It should be a great match as both look to win and advance on to the next round. Carlo v Pep will be an intriguing match up.

Team News

For Man City, there are no fresh concerns. Everyone will be available.

Everton are without goalkeepers Jordan Pickford and Robin Olsen both out, as well as playmaker James Rodriguez.

Midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jean-Phillipe Gbamin and Fabian Delph will also miss with fitness concerns.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-0 Everton
