    Everton Vs. Manchester City – Premier League LIVE

    Probable Lineups:

    everton manCityEverton (4-2-3-1): Howard, Coleman, Stones, Alcaraz, Baines, Osman, McCarthy, McGeady, Barkley, Deulofeu, Lukaku

    Everton’s 2-0 away loss to Southampton last week almost guarantees that Arsenal will finish above them in fourth, much to the dismay of the Merseysiders looking for a crack in the Champions League. Roberto Martinez however can not give up the chase and has promised to field a strong side against the title-chasing Citizens. They will however be without several key players: Gareth Barry, Steven Pienaar, and on-form Belgian Kevin Mirallas all expected to miss through injury. Sylvan Distin and Phil Jagielka are also major doubts, which could see John Stones and Antolin Alacaraz start as center-backs.

    Manchester City (4-2-2-2): Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Y Touré, Fernandinho, Milner, Nasri, Dzeko, Aguero

    Only three points behind league leaders Liverpool and with a game-in-hand, Manchester City will to win this game to significantly boost their chances of claiming their second Premier League trophy. Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be thanking Chelsea for their 2-0 win over the Reds, allowing the Citizens to be front-runners. The Chilean boss’ only injury worry is David Silva, who was set to miss the rest of the season but could be pass fit for the trip to Goodison Park.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    A fan captures Nikica Jelavic scoring the last goal in the Toffee’s 3-1 win over Manchester City last year. Oh how Liverpool will hope there’s a repeat of the result this time round.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Aguero

    Sergio Aguero hasn’t had the best of years blighted by injury, but the Argentinian still managed 16 goals and 11 assists in the league alone. And now with the season drawing to a close, Manchester City need his goals more than ever in their chase for the Premier League title. Additionally, the Citizens have a double-gameweek, furthering his appeal.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Everton vs. Manchester City: An Alternative Preview

    Everton have won nine of their last 13 Barclays Premier League meetings with Manchester City (D1 L3).

    The Citizens have lost their last four league games at Goodison Park and have won just one of their last 15 (D4 L10).

    Six of Man City’s last seven Premier League goals have come before half-time.

    Roberto Martinez has lost eight of his nine Premier League encounters with Man City (D1).

    Yaya Toure needs one more goal to become only the second central midfielder to score 20+ goals in a PL season (after Lampard with 22 in 2009-10).

    Since the start of December, City have taken more points away from home (27) than any other team.

    City have scored in each of their last 10 games; no other Premier League team is on a run longer than five currently.

    Sergio Aguero has been substituted 47 times in his Premier League career, more than any other player in the division in that period.

    Aguero has scored only one goal in four Premier League games after notching in each of his previous five appearances.

    Alvaro Negredo has scored no goals in 14 appearances since returning from injury, after bagging 23 in 33 beforehand (all comps).
