Man City vs Everton predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League match today

Manchester City can ill-afford a defeat if they are to keep their faint Premier League title hopes alive as they take on Everton at the Etihad Stadium on New Year’s Day.

City will kick-off on Wednesday evening with the chance to cut the 14-point deficit to league leaders Liverpool, knowing that defeat against the blue half of Merseyside will prove one of the final nails in their Premier League title defence.

Pep Guardiola will likely have to rely on a patched-up defence once again, with Aymeric Laporte still weeks away from a return, but both John Stones and David Silva find themselves in contention to come back from injury.

Prediction

The odds against Everton look fairly harsh on first viewing given they appear to be getting back towards expectations in their post-Marco Silva days. Ancelotti has given them a spring in their step and their four-prong attack that did for Newcastle at St James’s Park could well cause City’s patched-up defence a few problems. As a result, we’re going for a narrow upset.
