Premier League champions Manchester City welcome Everton to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon as Pep Guardiola’s men aim to round off a memorable campaign in style.
The Citizens have cantered to their third title in four years and with fans allowed into the stadium to see them lift the trophy this weekend, they will no doubt want to put in a strong performance.
There is also the small matter of City’s first ever Champions League final next weekend, so they are likely to keep something in reserve as they prepare to face Chelsea in that.
Manchester City vs Everton Latest Odds
City have lost three of their last six Premier League matches, although that run has not had any bearing on their season.
The hosts are priced at 4/9 (1.44) to claim a victory with bet365 while the draw can be backed at 4/1 (5.00).
Everton need to better Tottenham’s result against Leicester and Arsenal’s versus Brighton to have any chance of reaching the newly-formed UEFA Conference League, and they are offered at 11/2 (6.50) to give themselves the best chance of doing so by beating the champions.
Manchester City vs Everton Team News
It remains to be seen how many players Guardiola choses to rest ahead of next weekend’s Champions League final, but Joao Cancelo is suspended, while Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan are all doubtful and unlikely to be risked.
The visitors are without Jean-Philippe Gbamin who has a knee injury, although James Rodriguez could return after missing Everton’s last game with fatigue.
Manchester City vs Everton Preview
The hosts’ last few matches have been full of goals and excitement, with a 4-3 win at Newcastle followed by a 3-2 defeat at Brighton.
Something similar could unfold at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday with City hoping to entertain but also perhaps lacking full concentration at the back.
The previous league meeting saw them play out an entertaining encounter at Goodison Park where City eventually triumphed 3-1, and taking the tally of goals to 35 in the most recent 11 encounters.
Indeed, both teams to score has paid out in seven of the last nine league clashes and backing more strikes on Sunday makes plenty of sense.
Manchester City vs Everton Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 4/5 (1.80) and looks like an excellent selection, while combining this bet with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 11/10 (2.10).
Five of the last six games between City and Everton have seen goals at both ends and at least three goals, making this a highly attractive option.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
