Everton vs Manchester City – Betting Tips & Predictions – 06-02

Last updated & checked: 10/08/2021

Manchester City travel along the East Lancs Road on Wednesday evening to face Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s men are looking for their sixth win in seven Premier League games, while the Toffees will be keen to bounce back from a disappointing weekend home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
City will be encouraged by their recent history against the Toffees on Merseyside, having won two of their last three games against Everton at Goodison Park.

Everton vs Manchester City Prediction: Toffees 1-2 City

Our prediction for this game is that City will win 2-1. While Everton will be keen to bounce back from their disappointing home defeat against Wolves at the weekend, there are doubts at the moment whether they are playing well enough collectively to trouble a team like City. We suspect that Everton will start strongly in front of their own fans, and might even take an early lead. In the end, City’s quality will tell, though. We predict that two second-half goals will see the Citizens take three valuable points back along the East Lancs Road.

Our recommended tip: City, both score

Our featured tip for this game comes from William Hill. They are offering odds of 6/4 on City to win and both teams to score. We think that Everton will make a strong start but will succumb to City’s quality in the end. A bet on both teams to score also gives you a bit of flexibility when it comes to the final score. Odds of 6/4 also offer decent value for punters without there being too much risk. You should get decent returns for a reasonably sized bet at odds of 6/4.

Top 3 Premier League Bookies

Players to watch: Theo Walcott & Sergio Aguero

Former Arsenal winger Theo Walcott could the man who breaks this game open for Everton. Walcott has scored five Premier League goals against City in his career. He has only scored more against West Ham United. Those five goals have come in his last seven games against the Mancunian outfit. For Everton this season, Walcott has provided three goals and two assists in his 24 Premier League appearances. He has also created three big chances.
City striker Sergio Aguero has scored in each of his last four games in all competitions, hitting six goals from eight shots in those games. What is particularly striking about that stat is that the Argentine has only played 249 minutes out of 360 in those games. There are few players who can deliver that kind of goalscoring efficiency in the Premier League, and Everton will need to keep a close eye on ‘Kun’ on Wednesday evening.
