Manchester City can take advantage of Chelsea's defeat at Newcastle by beating Everton tonight.
A win for City would close the gap to three points at the top of the Premier League, which is a surprise turnaround given the criticism leveled at City in recent weeks.
They come up against an Everton side who have been something of a bogey team for City in recent seasons, but defeat to Tottenham last week showed that the Toffees have regressed from last season.
City will be firm favourites to win the game with star striker Sergio Aguero bang in form, and the prospect of facing Sylvain Distin and Tony Hibbert is one that the Argentine will relish.
