Man City v Everton Preview: Toffees face sticky test

MRF_EnglishFootball_Aguero_ManCity

I TIPPED Man City to lift the title and they face their first big test in Monday’s live TV showdown.

Last week’s 2-0 defeat of Brighton was no more than expected but Everton will be keen to show they can match City on the pitch as well in the transfer market.

Billionaire owner Farhad Moshiri has provided Ronald Koeman with funds to believe in a top-four finish but in reality the Toffees will finish no higher than seventh. They are 6-5 with mcbookie to win the league without the big six.

Moshiri’s bottomless pit of cash couldn’t prevent Romelu Lukaku leaving but the fee has been well spent on the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Wayne Rooney and Davy Klasssen.

Everton may have a fitness advantage having played three Europa League ties but could have one eye on their trip to Hajduk Split on Thursday.

I’m confident City will win but I can’t back them at a best 3-10 with William Hill. Everton are 11-1 with bet365 while a third league draw in a row between the sides in Manchester pays 5-1 at McBookie.

That stalemate at the Etihad was one of only two points Everton took away from home to anyone in the top nine and that’s a terrible record.

The stat convinces me to take City and backing them to be leading at half-time and full-time pays 20-23 with Coral as opposed to the 1-3 just to win.

With both sides at full strength in attack goals are expected but over 2.5 pays just 4-7 at Betfred while both teams to score appeals slightly at 21-20 with McBookie – although Everton haven’t been firing up front with three 1-0s and a 2-0 win this season.

When looking at City scorers it’s tough to pick from Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane but I’d favour Jesus at 10-11 with William Hill.

Former Man United hero Wayne Rooney netted the winner against Stoke last week and is 19-4 at unibet to strike a goal the home fans would hate to see.
