The sole mid-week game in the Premier League takes place on Wednesday night, as Everton host Manchester City, kicking off at 7:45pm. The match has been brought forward in the schedule due to Manchester City’s participation in the Carabao Cup.

Home Team: Everton

Everton’s inconsistent form has brought pressure on manager Marco Silva, and the last opponent that he will have wanted to face is Manchester City. Everton have been tipped throughout the season to finish 7th, particularly with the amount of investment that has been made to bring the quality of players prior to the season. However, in their most recent match, they were defeated by direct competition in the league losing 3-1 at home to Wolves. Everton were behind for the majority of the match and looked second best as the defeat took them 9th in the league, and 5 points behind that 7th spot. In 2019, Everton have a habit of winning one game, and then losing the next, so that bodes well for this upcoming fixture, but it will be a tall order.

Away Team: Manchester City

Manchester City’s shock defeat to Newcastle last Tuesday had many writing off their chances of retaining a title, but the following four days couldn’t have gone any better. First of all, Liverpool were unable to capitalise by only drawing to Leicester, and then Manchester City beat Arsenal 3-1 on Sunday. Manchester City will play this match weeks ahead of schedule and can get points on the board to keep pressure on Liverpool who are above of them slightly. Sergio Aguero was in prolific form as his hat-trick dispatched Arsenal relatively comfortably. It was arguably the perfect hat-trick, scoring with his head, foot and… hand? Regardless of whether his final goal should have stood, his all-round performance was tremendous and he was taken off early as he prepares for this vital match on Wednesday.

Head to Head

Everton and Manchester City have an equal record of all time, with the former winning 68 times, and the latter winning 70 times. In the last decade, Everton have always seemed to save their best performance of the season against Manchester City, and have taken points from them on many occasions. Manchester City have only won four times at Goodison Park in Premier League history, but most of them were in more recent times in 2018, 2015 and 2014. Everton last beat Manchester City in Pep Guardiola’s first season in the Premier League, the score line was 4-0 to the hosts in an absolute drubbing. In the reverse fixture this season, Manchester City won 3-1 at home just before Christmas with Gabriel Jesus scoring two goals, and Raheem Sterling scoring the other for the hosts.

Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on footballEverton are at 15/2 to get the win here, with Manchester City strong favourites at 1/3. For the sides to share the spoils, that is priced at 4/1. Manchester City have looked poor in recent away fixtures in the Premier League in the last month or two, losing three of their last five with wins over Southampton and Huddersfield, so the odds of Everton – who are the bogey side for Manchester City – to win are rather kind. Nonetheless, I’d back Manchester City to avoid being complacent and get the job done here with a 3-0 score line at 8/1.

Aguero scored first in Manchester City’s last two matches, and he is at 7/2 to do that again. For the hosts, they may like their chances scoring from set pieces, so it may be worth backing Kurt Zouma (20/1) or Michael Keane (16/1) to score at any time. Both sides have failed to keep clean sheets of late, and being involved in high-scoring matches, so I’d tip there to be more than 3.5 goals at 5/4. Finally, if you feel that Everton can shock Manchester City like Newcastle did, you back the hosts to win from behind at an incredible 25/1.
