Manchester City vs Everton

Published

on

Everton continue their run of difficult Premier League away matches with arguably the hardest one of all – but their recent record at the Etihad Stadium offers them encouragement.

As the stats above outline, the Toffees have been capable of grinding out points when visiting the blue half of Manchester in recent years, and it has not mattered who their manager has been at the time.

Under Marco Silva, Everton have recently drawn away to Chelsea and lost only due to a horrendous Jordan Pickford error deep into stoppage time at Anfield.

They won at Leicester, went down narrowly at Manchester United and while they were beaten 2-0 at Arsenal, they will only have Tottenham of the ‘big six’ left to visit after this Saturday – and that is not until the final weekend of the season.

City, of course, are aiming to bounce back from their 2-0 loss at Chelsea which cost them top spot in the table to Everton’s neighbours Liverpool and, of course, they still have a 100% home record in the league this term.

That may well stay intact, but five of the eight visitors to the Etihad so far have scored a consolation goal and Everton look more than capable of doing likewise.
