Everton – Manchester City, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR EVERTON - MAN CITY
Everton seems to be hesitant again. Now, the management of this team did so much raise them and bring then closer to the top 6, but it does not work. Once again, much funds have been spent. Silva had a good reputation at Watford, but his plans don’t work here. There were rumors of dismissal again after the loss to Sheffield United. Still, Everton are not so far back in the standings, but they are in urgent need of points.
Since the loss of Man City against Norwich and the news that Stones and Laporte will not play together for at least a month and a half, Man City have scored 14 goals and not allowed one in only 3 matches in 3 different tournaments. We should not forget that this team is unique and can be compared to the biggest teams in history. Of course, unless they win the Champions League, this will never be recognized by many.
Expert view : We have almost no doubt about City’s victory. We think they will score 2 or 3 goals vs Everton without a problem, which they have nothing to do. Still, we think City won’t go with clean sheet this time. Their defense, though, is not so stable. Everton have a great class in attack, and now they will not own the ball and will rely mostly on counter attacks. Here, the match itself will be different because of the opponent, and they are not under the pressure to win. Exactly in such games, Everton has somehow managed to get the best of itself, so our prediction is BTTS & Over 2.5 goals at 2.00.
Everton have 6 wins in their last 7 home games in the league
Everton have scored in 14 of their last 16 home games against Man City
