On December 31, Etihad Stadium (Manchester) will host the match of the 18th round of the English Premier League, in which Manchester City will compete with Everton. The battle will start at 16:00 CET.

Manchester City

The club, taking into account only recent years, has only once passed the title in the inner arena. That was in 2020 when Liverpool managed to take the trophy. But the season after the team regained the 1st place, and in the next one – it was defended. No one doubted that “the Citizens” would keep the gold, especially after having won a quite desirable right to sign Erling Haaland in summer. And the Norwegian has even exceeded all expectations, scoring on average almost one and a half goals per game. At the same time, Arsenal, which has made a minimum of misfires in the autumn, is also on the peak and 5 points ahead of the favourite. December looks pretty successful: the Norwegian does not slow down in his performance; the team is confident and has won in both matches – with Liverpool in the EFL Cup and with Leeds in the Premier League.

Everton

The team under the rule of Ancelotti showed not only the ambition to compete for the top 4, but also, albeit in an episodic way, real attempts to stay in the Champions League zone. But Carlo left the club, and Rafael Benitez, who replaced him, completely failed. As a result, the management relied on Frank Lampard, and he won the fight for survival in the spring. On the other hand, it is difficult for the team to add in the game with this coach. In August-November, 15 matches gave only 3 wins and 14 points. Only the top three outsiders have worse results, thus, there is no chance to relax. Especially after, having conceded in the 95th minute, they lost to a direct competitor, Wolverhampton, in a home match.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Since 2018, Manchester City has had only wins for the past 10 matches in a row against this opponent. Last February, Guardiola also beat Lampard at Goodison Park by means of a single goal scored by Foden.

Predictions

Bookmakers are confident in Guardiola’s victory, only the final score is under question. Keeping in memory the weakness of Leeds, we bet on the victory of City with “a -2.5 goal handicap” (odd: 2.09).
