Current form — Manchester City v. Everton
The Citizens are on a roll
Manchester City look to continue their current momentum with another positive result. Pep Guardiola’s side look back on their last 3 matches with some decent results. Against Crystal Palace, they were left empty-handed in a 2-0 defeat, but they avenged themselves by beating Club Bruges in a 4-1 win. They followed that up with a 2-0 win against Manchester United in their most recent outing.
The Blues on a miserable run
The mood around Everton is pretty low right now as a win has proven hard to come by in recent weeks. Only a single point prevents Rafael Benitez’s side from having nothing to show for their previous 3 games. They came up short, losing by 2-5 and 2-1 against Watford and Wolves, respectively. Their latest match brought some consolation, as they were able to hang on for a 0-0 draw against Tottenham.
Just limiting an expected defeat might be the target for Everton here. Siding with a home win at odds 1.21 is a no-brainer in the kind of form they are displaying.

Primary goal getter
It is difficult to look past Riyad Mahrez, when on the search for a marksman. He seems to be on a strong run, as he hit the target 4 times lately for Manchester City. Andros Townsend has managed to score 2 times in the last half dozen matches for Everton. It is safe to say that they will both be looking to add to that tally here once again.
