How Everton and Man City are expected to line-up today in FA Cup


anchester City continue to have a fully fit squad to pick from as they today look to beat Everton in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Pep Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns following their midweek Champions League outing against Borussia Monchengladbach in Budapest.

Raheem Sterling could be among those to come in after three games without starting.

Everton will be without their two senior goalkeepers Jordan Pickford and Robin Olsen.

Pickford aggravated a rib problem in last weekend’s defeat to Burnley while Olsen has not recovered from an abdominal muscle injury which has sidelined him for four matches, meaning 21-year-old Joao Virginia will make only his third appearance for the club.

Midfielders Fabian Delph (tendon) and Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot) are missing as is playmaker James Rodriguez (calf).

Predicted lineups

Everton predicted XI (4-2-1-2): Virginia; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne; Allan, Davies, Gomes; Sigurdsson; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin

Manchester City predicted XI (4-3-3): Steffen; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Torres, Aguero, Sterling

Everton squad from: Virginia, Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Allan, Gomes, Davies, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Tyrer, Mina, Nkounkou, Broadhead, Sigurdsson, Bernard, John, Iwobi, Onyango, King.

Manchester City squad from: Ederson, Steffen, Walker, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Stones, Garcia, Ake, Zinchenko, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodri, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling, Torres, Mahrez, Foden, Jesus, Aguero.
