Get ready for an electrifying fixture as Everton takes on Manchester City in what promises to be a challenging game for the Toffees. Everton sit two points off the drop zone and will be looking to extend their points gap to ensure their Premier League status.
Everton’s recent 5-1 win against Brighton has given the Toffee’s hope for Premier League survival, but facing a relentless City that’s eyeing the premier league trophy won’t be a walk in the park. Everton fans are counting on the electric atmosphere of Goodison Park to push their team towards a good result.
Given the tough competition across the board this weekend for all relegation contenders, a draw against Manchester City would be a major victory for Everton fans. A point at home against the current champions would be a huge deal.
Fortunately for Everton, City will no doubt rest some players for their upcoming Champions League second leg fixture against Real Madrid. However, with Manchester City in tip top form and fending off title challengers Arsenal, the Toffees will have to put up a serious fight to secure any amount of points.
To boost their chances, manager Sean Dyche may bring dynamic midfielder Onana back into the fray to replace James Garner, while hoping for another physical performance from Yerry Mina, providing he is fit enough. The Colombian dazzled against Brighton and could be a great match up against City’s frontline.
With Everton only two points above the drop and with three fixtures to go, time is running out and Everton’s season hangs in the balance. Every game counts. Sean Dyche faces another significant challenge in this game, and will be looking to utilise every tactic he’s learned throughout his career to secure a favourable result for Everton.
