Predicted Manchester City and Everton line-ups - One eye on Europe for Pellegrini

Match to be played on Saturday 6th December 2014 at 17:30. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was unsurprisingly delighted with the way his team played to secure a 4-1 win against Sunderland last night, which helps them keep the pressure up on Chelsea at the top of the league.

City have been searching for some consistency and Pellegrini will now be hoping that his team can string together an impressive run of results heading into a busy Christmas and New Year period where they will be tested.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez will be angry about the way his team conceded against Hull, which saw them relinquish a narrow advantage.

Everton are fighting to get into the top half of the table, which is where they should be looking to consolidate for most of the season after an inconsistent first few months.

Here are the potential teams that each club could go with.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Boyata, Demichelis, Clichy, Navas, Toure, Fernandinho, Milner, Jovetic, Aguero

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, McGeady, Besic, Barry, Osman, Barkley, Mirallas, Lukaku
