Defending champions Manchester City have a chance to go back to the top of the Premier League table if they beat Everton tomorrow night.
This is their extra matchday in the league, as Pep Guardiola’s men will be contesting the Carabao Cup final during the weekend that this game was set to take place on.
After surrendering the lead and eventually the game against Newcastle United, the Cityzens showed their superiority against Arsenal and overwhelmed them on Sunday.
They still have a chance to win all four competitions, which is a high incentive to have for a team that aims to become the best in the world.
However, an away game at Goodison Park under the lights won’t be easy, even though Everton have been in patchy form in recent times.
Captain Vincent Kompany is going to miss this game. Other than that, Guardiola has a near-clean bill of health to pick his line-up from for tomorrow’s match.
Here’s how we think the Spaniard could line his team up:
The Brazilian is the club’s first-choice goalkeeper and is expected to start every league game.
RB: Kyle Walker
After sitting out a few games, Walker has done well since his return to the side. We predict him to start tomorrow.
CB: John Stones
He was benched for the game against Arsenal and is expected to feature against his old club tomorrow.
CB: Aymeric Laporte
The Frenchman has been a consistent selection at the back. He has started all bar one game in the league this season. He is expected to start in central defence against the Toffees.
He was below-par against Newcastle and benched against Arsenal. However, we predict him to take the field tomorrow.
The Brazilian played as a floating defensive midfielder against the Gunners with relative ease. Expect him to play in the same position tomorrow.
RCM: Bernardo Silva
He played on the right wing against Arsenal and is expected to be back in midfield tomorrow. It is because Kevin De Bruyne played almost the entire game on Sunday and starting him again would be a risk.
LCM: David Silva
The Spaniard’s runs on the left side would be tough for the Everton defence to mark.
RW: Raheem Sterling
He started on the left wing against Arsenal and roasted Stephan Lichtsteiner. The Englishman is predicted to slot back into his natural right-side wide role.
ST: Sergio Aguero
The Argentine scored the hat-trick on Sunday to continue his impressive form in front of goal. Everton will be scared of him tomorrow.
LW: Leroy Sane
After an underwhelming display against Newcastle, he was benched on Sunday. But, we could see the German starting tomorrow and troubling Seamus Coleman.
