Man City vs Everton team news

While Guardiola may be tempted to rest some key players in order to avoid late injury problems, the Catalan coach recently spoke of wanting his side to be as sharp as possible to face Chelsea.

That means we could see a lineup close to resembling his Champions Lague Final XI when the Toffees visit in order to bring some stability, though there will be a few notable absentees.

Joao Cancelo is suspended after being sent off at Newcastle, while Ilkay Gundogan (knee), Kyle Walker and Raheem Sterling (both muscle) are doubts and will likely be afforded important recovery time.

Aguero is also a doubt with a leg problem, but given his legendary status at the club as he prepares to leave this summer, it would take something serious to deny him a cameo from the bench at the very least.

As for Everton, James Rodriguez should be back after missing the Toffees’ win over Wolves due to fatigue, while Jean-Philippe Gbamin is out with a knee injury.

Man City vs Everton prediction

City have not been at their best of late: they lost 2-1 to Chelsea, beat Newcastle 4-3 and then fell 3-2 at Brighton. Everton are also a good team away from home, so this could be ricky for the champions.
