Everton vs Man City live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV

Manchester City are back to winning with three victories on the spin, after a blip at home to West Brom, and enter this tricky test away to Everton after a Boxing Day victory over Newcastle. The Toffees are in fine form under Carlo Ancelotti, following four successive Premier League victories, including their Boxing Day win at struggling Sheffield United, thanks to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late strike.

Pep Guardiola’s side will hope to keep pace with champions Liverpool and reaffirm their title credentials after a sluggish start, with maximum points here at Goodison Park and next up away to an out of sorts Chelsea likely to position the Citizens well heading into the new year.

The Toffees will hope to keep the pressure on rivals and leaders Liverpool, with the champions looking strong already in their title defence, despite suffering injuries to key players this season.

Guardiola will hope to call on Sergio Aguero once again, with Gabriel Jesus contracting Covid-19 recently, and the Spaniard insisting he “needs” the Argentine striker: “We discussed whether to start with Sergio [against Newcastle]. I need him. It was very good news in general that in the minutes Sergio played we saw him sharp and dynamic. This is incredible news for us. We need him, absolutely. But we have to be careful. We cannot do what we did in the past, when he comes back [too soon] and then gets injured. I still want to handle the minutes but I saw him well – and I love this guy.”

What is the team news?

Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker remain out after testing positive for Covid-19, while Eric Garcia is also out. Rodri appeared to have been taken off prematurely against Newcastle in order to manage his workload, while Sergio Aguero is back fit.

Richarlison is a doubt again after failing to be cleared following a concussion, while this game comes too soon for James Rodriguez. Anthony Gordon could drop out of the XI, with Bernard under consideration, with Ancelotti also considering Seamus Coleman and Andre Gomes.

Predicted line-ups

Everton XI: Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Keane, Godfrey; Gomes, Doucoure; Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin

Man City XI: Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Mendy; Rodri, Fernandinho; Torres, De Bruyne, Sterling; Aguero

Everton: 5/1

Draw: 100/30

Prediction

This is an intriguing game and a real test for both sides off short rest, but City appear to be finally discovering their best form again, so we’ll lean towards Pep Guardiola’s side to win this one in a high-scoring affair. Everton 2-3 Man City
