Preview

Defeat to Tottenham was City’s fate last weekend and still, City travel to Goodison as the Premier League leaders.

Guardiola’s men are unbeaten on the road since defeat on the opening day to Spurs, and have won 19 of our last 22 matches in all competitions.

Everton were beaten 2-0 by Southampton in their last encounter and currently sit 16th in the Premier League table.

However, Frank Lampard’s men will be upped by their recent home form, winning each of their last two matches at Goodison Park.

Which team will come out in front?

Team News

Pep Guardiola’s side have Cole Palmer and Zach Steffen out. Zinchenko is questionable.

For Everton, Godfrey, Gray, Delph, Davies and Mina are out.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-1 Everton
