Manchester City v Everton predicted lineups and match preview

Manchester City Stand

Manchester City host Everton in the Premier League tonight.

To be played on Wednesday 13th January 2016 at 19:45. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Odds: Man City 8/15, Draw 3/1, Everton 11/2

Manchester City and Everton meet for the second time in a week this evening, this time in the Premier League.

The two teams faced off in the Capital One Cup a week ago, with Everton running out 2-1 winners thanks to Romelu Lukaku's winning goal.

City will be looking to pick up a third win in their last four Premier League games, but will have to do it without the injured Eliaquim Mangala, Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho.

Manuel Pellegrini has to choice to make in midfield, with either Fabian Delph or Fernando set to partner Yaya Toure.

The dangerous quartet of Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero are again set to be called upon in attack, and will no doubt cause problems for Everton's backline.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has his own injury woes, as Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy are ruled out, whilst Tom Cleverley may also be missing.

That may mean that John Stones shifts across to right back and the returning Phil Jagielka coming in to partner Ramiro Funes Mori in the heart of defence.

Muhamed Besic may replace Cleverley in midfield, whilst Martinez is likely to go with either Arouna Kone or Kevin Mirallas on the left, with Kone potentially set to start again despite some criticism from Everton fans recently.
