An Everton side winless in four straight Premier League matches will bid to snap their run of poor form against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
Hosts Manchester City are in second place on 35 points, five points behind table-topping Arsenal through 15 matches. Manchester City won their last Premier League match 3-1 at Elland Road against Leeds United.
Everton slumped 2-1 against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Goodison Park in their last Premier League match, extending their winless streak to four (W0 D1 L3), leaving them in 17th place on 14 points.
The previous Premier League fixture between the sides saw Manchester City triumph 1-0 at Goodison Park last season. Phil Foden scored City’s only goal in the 82nd minute.
Manchester City have got the better of Everton of late, unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League matches (W9 D1 L0). Everton are looking for their first league win in games between the two teams since January 2017. City have outscored the Toffees 26-6 during their unbeaten streak.
Erling Haaland has caught the eye for Manchester City this season. He is the team’s top scorer with 20 goals, which is more than any rival player in the league in 2022/2023.
Anthony Gordon and Dwight McNeil are Everton’s leading scorers, netting three and two times, respectively.
Hosts Manchester City have been formidable at Etihad Stadium this season with seven wins and just one loss in eight Premier League contests. Everton will seek to address a poor run of results on the road this season with three draws, four losses, and just one win in league away contests. The toffees are looking to reverse a four-match away winless streak (W0 D1 L3). They haven’t earned a win away since October 1 against Southampton.
In their last six league matches, Manchester City have won four and lost two. Everton, meanwhile, have won one, drawn one and lost four in their last six.
