Everton vs Man City Match Information

  • Match: Everton (8-2-8) vs Man City (10-4-3)
  • Location: Goodison Park, Liverpool, England
  • Day/Time: Wednesday, Dec. 27, 3:15 p.m. ET

The Citizens lifted the Club World Cup trophy last week with a 4-0 victory over Fluminense but hope to improve their Premier League form, six points behind leaders Arsenal.

Playing Everton at Goodison Park just days after flying back from the Club World Cup cannot have been at the top of Pep Guardiola’s Christmas list, however, and this looks likely to be an enthralling clash. Still, we will include them in our soccer picks and predictions.

Everton vs Man City Odds and Spreads

  • Both teams have scored in six of Manchester City’s last seven league games
  • The Citizens are unbeaten in their last 13 meetings between these two teams
  • Sean Dyche’s side is averaging just over two yellow cards per game in the Premier League this season, collecting a minimum of two bookings in each of their last four outings at their Merseyside base
  • Four of Manchester City’s last seven league games have seen four or more goals
  • Everton was beaten 2-1 by Tottenham on Saturday but have won six of their last nine league matches
  • The Toffees have the best defensive record in the bottom half, conceding just 22 times in 18 games
  • Manchester City has been more leaky defensively this season than in previous campaigns, conceding 20 times in 17 matches time around.
  • Everton has netted in eight of their last nine Premier League clashes.

 

Spread Pick: Man City -1 (-109)

The champions visit Everton as they return to domestic action, with the Toffees putting in an impressive run of form since being handed a 10-point deduction.

Nevertheless, their record against Manchester City leaves something to be desired, failing to win any of the last 13 meetings between the pair.

We expect City to put on a strong performance, so if you’re betting online, you should back them to cover the spread. The Citizens won by at least three goals in three of their previous five encounters with Everton.

Player Prop Pick: Julian Alvarez Score or Assist (-112)

Julian Alvarez, who grabbed a brace in the CWC final, has registered an assist in two of City’s last three away PL matches. Erling Haaland is a doubt for this clash, and Julian Alvarez could lead the line in his absence.

The Argentinian has eight goals in all competitions this season and is fancied to add to that tally here. We expect him to score at least once or offer an assist and this is arguably the best player prop bet for this clash.

Best Game Prop: Manchester City Wins and Total Over 2½ (+125)

We’ve assessed recent form, injuries, suspensions, soccer lines and general confidence levels of both teams, and we expect a high-scoring affair on Wednesday. Manchester City just can’t afford another slip-up.

We just can’t bet against the fully motivated champions, but we also expect Everton to contribute on the scoresheet, so we will combine the moneyline and the goals market for our best soccer bet.

Everton 1, Man City 3

 

 

Questions Of The Day

Will the Citizens be at full strength with Kevin De Bruyne back on the pitch?


City’s talisman has been out since the opening day of the season with a hamstring injury but returned to training last week at the FIFA Club World Cup. With City in action on Wednesday, it would mean that the Belgian international has had a week and a half of training under his belt before the trip to Goodison Park, but we don’t expect him to start from the first minute of the game.
