Here is the latest form and team news for Everton and Manchester City:
Frank Lampard’s Everton have found themselves in the bottom half of the league table this season, a mere 4 points above the drop zone, having played a game less than Watford, who are in the 18th position. Their struggles led to the recent appointment of Lampard, who has recorded mixed results since his appointment.
In their last five league games, they have lost 4 and won 1, losing last time out away at Southampton. In 23 games this term, they have scored 28 times and conceded 40, garnering a total of 22 points in that period. Winger Demarai Gray leads the scoreboard for Everton with 5 goals and 2 assists in the league this far.
For their form and team news, Everton are missing a handful of players at the moment. Demarai Gray, Yerry Mina, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Fabian Delph, Tom Davies, and Ben Godfrey are sidelined with injuries and most likely will not play any part in their clash over the weekend.
Pep Guardiola’s City were brought down from their lofty heights at home to Tottenham as they lost only their second home game all season. Harry Kane’s late goal ensured that the Citizens left empty-handed, and they will hope to get back to winning ways in this fixture.
City have been in exquisite form all season, winning 20, drawing 3, and losing 3 out of 26 games played this term, with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss from their last 5 league fixtures. They have scored 63 goals and conceded 17, with Englishman Raheem Sterling being their top scorer with 10 goals and 1 assist.
For their team news, Manchester City will be missing Steffen Zackary, Cole Palmer, Gabriel Jesus, and Jack Grealish, who are sidelined with injuries, and Kyle Walker, who is currently unavailable.
