Reasons for betting on Manchester City vs Everton tip
Manchester City and Everton are closing the second round of English Premier League on Monday night. Citizens want to win the title this year, and every match they play at home needs to be won. Everton has an excellent team after a long time, and they are hoping that this season could be exceptional for them. All these circumstances are guaranteeing that this match is going to be a spectacle.
Manchester City overview
The Sky-Blues needed 70 minutes to break the defiance of the newbie in the league, Brighton and Hove Albion. And then in no time, they were leading 2-0. After losing the first match of the preseason against Manchester United, City won 4 straight in which they allowed only one goal, scoring 12. That is something new in their game. In 3 of the most recent events, Manchester City kept their net intact. The transfers made this summer are paying off for now, and it seems that City has one of the strongest back lines in Europe. From the last 9 games, 7 ended with over 2.5 goals. Regarding the injuries only, Benjamin Mendy will be doubtful for this match.
Gylfi Sigurdsson agreed to join the Toffees for £45 million. With this addition, we might say that Everton even has some slight chances to win the title. The club from Goodison Park has excellent players, and so far they have even better results. They have 7 straight meetings without a defeat, 4 of the previous 5 games ended with a less than 3 goals. Furthermore, their defense is so strong that in the last 4 events, on 3 occasions they had clean sheets. Also, in those 7 contests, they were the team who scored first. Everything mentioned here can tell you that the Toffees made a significant improvement since the start of this season. Ronald Koeman finally placed all the pieces of the puzzle together, and Wayne Rooney is here too, as the perfect leader. Ross Barkley, Ramiro Funes Mori, and Seamus Coleman are all injured for a long time.
Head to head matches
In the most recent meeting, Everton demolished Manchester City with 4-0. Prior to this game, he Citizens played only a draw at Etihad 1-1. Everton is just one of the few teams who had a positive record with City in the last campaign. These were the only two encounters between Pep Guardiola and Ronald Koeman.
Prediction for Manchester City vs. Everton tip
The first thing that crosses our mind when we see this matchup is both teams to score. We think that this is the most likely outcome. Manchester City is fantastic up front, and Everton has Wayne Rooney. The second one would be over 2.5 goals. Despite the fact that Everton has a strong defense, at Emirates Stadium Manchester City always imposes their own style of play. In our opinion the guys from Goodison will have to adapt and accept that kind of game.
