Manchester City vs Everton

Manchester City will play host to Everton this coming Sunday.

The Sky Blues head into the game on the back of a 2-0 drubbing of their cross-town rivals, Manchester United.

Said win, combined with results elsewhere in gameweek 11, would see Man City move up to 2nd in the Premier League table and to within just three points of table-topping Chelsea,

The title race is still very much wide open, though, and 5th place Arsenal could actually draw level on points with City this weekend should the Gunners win and Pep Guardiola’s men lose.

A loss against Everton, though, does not seem too likely at present. Rafa Benitez’s side are on a horrid run of form which has seen them fail to win their last five PL ties.

Manchester City team news

Ahead of the Everton game, Pep Guardiola would provide an update on three City stars on Friday.

And it is not great news for the Manchester outfit as Kevin De Bruyne is out with Covid-19, Jack Grealish also looks likely to miss out and Phil Foden is something of a doubt:

“Jack is getting better, Phil Foden came back with a problem on his leg and unfortunately Kevin got positive for Covid in Belgium.

“Jack I don’t think so [will be available], Phil maybe.”

Speaking more on De Bruyne’s Covid-19 case, Guardiola stated:

“We found out two days ago, he is here. Forget about fitness and momentum, he is positive now he has to recover. We have to be careful, people are dying from Covid, he is vaccinated so hopefully he will be okay. There is no concern about rhythm it’s about the human being.”
