Barton predicts Everton v Manchester City outcome

The Queens Park Rangers midfielder gives his take on today’s key Premier League clash.

Joey Barton is never scared to speak his mind on social networking site Twitter, and ahead of a key game this evening, the Queens Park Rangers midfielder has not shied away from predicting its outcome.

Everton against Manchester City at Goodison Park has been built up as the game that will decide the Premier League title race.

Heading into this weekend’s penultimate round of matches, the Toffees find themselves four points off the fourth spot and need to win today to stand any chance of making it to next season’s Champions League.

On the other hand, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will take a massive step towards the title if they get a win on Merseyside this evening.

The Citizens are currently three points behind leaders Liverpool, but have a game in hand and a better goal difference than the Reds.

Barton, who is from Merseyside and played for Everton and Liverpool as a youngster before going on to make his professional debut with Manchester City, has now given his take on how today’s match will pan out.
