Manchester City will be looking to open up a 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League table when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola’s men are seven points clear of neighbours Manchester United with a game in hand, having put together a record-breaking 16-match winning streak in all competitions.

Two of the hosts’ last three fixtures have resulted in draws after 90 minutes, and you can get odds of 9/2 (5.50) on them earning a point in this one.

Everton vs Manchester City Team News
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jordan Pickford will hope to return after missing Sunday’s Fulham defeat, while James Rodriguez will be assessed after coming off injured in that clash and Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are also doubtful.
Ruben Dias and Sergio Aguero are both in contention after making the bench for Saturday’s win over Tottenham and Ilkay Gundogan faces a late fitness test, although Nathan Ake, Fernandinho and Kevin De Bruyne remain sidelined.
Everton vs Manchester City Preview
Calro Ancelotti will be particularly eager to have top scorer Calvert-Lewin back in action as soon as possible after another toothless display in the shock home defeat to relegation-battling Fulham.
That match saw them fail to score for the third time in four Premier League home games, having netted just once the other match in that sequence.
This does not bode well for a game against the Citizens, whose watertight defence has kept 11 clean sheets over the course of their 16-match winning streak – conceding just five goals in total during that run.
Everton vs Manchester City Tips and Predictions
Having let in just one goal in their last eight matches in the league, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem particularly generous on City consigning Everton to a fourth home defeat in five in which they fail to hit the back of the net.
