John Brooks will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League meeting with Everton on Saturday afternoon.
Pep Guardiola’s side have the opportunity to move to the top of the Premier League table and bring the title race into their control with a victory over Everton at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.
Manchester City successfully capitalised on Liverpool’s loss to Arsenal in north London with a crucial 3-1 comeback win over Brentford on Monday evening, courtesy of Phil Foden’s sublime hat-trick.
The 23-year-old equalised for City on the brink of half-time prior to scoring two fantastic goals in the second-half, as the Sky Blues moved to within two points of the top of the table with a game in hand.
The victory, which also saw both Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland handed starts, extended Manchester City’s current unbeaten streak to 12 matches across all competitions, with Guardiola’s side having not lost since early December.
Everton visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Manchester City having won 3-1 at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture earlier this season, with Foden also on the scoresheet.
