Manchester City will host Everton at the Etihad Stadium this weekend, as they look to keep their march to the top of the table strong following their win in the midweek.
Pep Guardiola’s side could move to the top of the table with a win over Everton, as Manchester City seek to further extend their current 12-match unbeaten streak this weekend.
Saturday’s clash is the first of three consecutive home Premier League matches for Manchester City, with the Sky Blues unbeaten against Everton since 2017 and Guardiola having never lost to a Sean Dyche side.
City moved to within two points of the top of the table with a win over Brentford on Monday evening, as Phil Foden’s hat-trick inspired the Sky Blues to a 3-1 comeback victory.
Foden was also on the scoresheet when Manchester City faced Everton at Goodison Park in December, where the Cityzens also emerged as 3-1 winners.
On the other side of Saturday’s ticket sits Everton, who come into the match off of a draw against Tottenham Hotspur last week, which only came after a last-minute equaliser from Jarrad Branthwaithe.
The match between Manchester City and Everton will take place on Saturday 10th February with kick-off scheduled for 12:30 GMT.
Pep Guardiola has no injuries to plan around against Sean Dyche’s side, who will be without leading scorer Abdoulaye Doucoure, alongside Andre Gomes, Amadou Onana, and Arnaut Danjuma.
