THE TEAM NEWS

MAN CITY

  • City got back to winning ways last time out against Sheff Utd despite controversy over the opening goal and VAR playing a role once again.
  • They welcome back Ederson after he missed the game through suspension and he will return in goal for Bravo while more changes are likely.
  • The likes of Joao Cancelo, Otamendi, Gundogan and Bernardo Silva could all be handed recalls with Gabriel Jesus also a candidate to come in.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Gundogan, Rodri; Bernardo Silva, Aguero, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured)

Doubtful: Stones (Injured), David Silva (Injured)

EVERTON

  • Carlo Ancelotti has had a major impact since arriving at Everton having led them to back-to-back wins and into the top half of the table.
  • Despite making five changes to his line-up and in formation, the Toffees became just the second team to win away at Newcastle this season.
  • More rotations are expected here and Ancelotti may revert to three central defenders with the in-form Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin up top.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Holgate; Sidibe, Sigurdsson, Davies, Delph, Digne; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

Unavailable: Gbamin (Injured), Andre Gomes (Injured), Iwobi (Injured)

Doubtful: Schneiderlin (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

City are still not firing on all cylinders and this will be a tough test against a resurgent Everton side. Ancelotti's men look a completely different team to that from the first half of the season and they can pose City plenty of problems with the in-form Calvert-Lewin so expect goals at both ends.
