Everton vs Man City Betting Preview

By Ernie Bibby, Friday, May 12, 2023 4:09 pm

Man City will continue their march to the Premier League title by making the short trip to Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon. The match kicks off at 2pm UK time.



Everton have given their chances of remaining in the Premier League a sizeable boost by beating Brighton and picking up a useful draw at the King Power. The Toffees have been fairly stodgy under Sean Dyche so far, however, they appear to have sprung into life and have found plenty of confidence going forward.

A fortnight ago, Everton had only scored ten times on the road, yet they’ve now netted seven times across their last two away trips and can take that new-found confidence into this tricky tie. Dwight McNeil has been excellent recently and although they still lack an out-and-out striker who can stay fit, they are now scoring goals from all over the pitch.

Despite this, Everton have the third worst home form in the division and have won just five of their 17 matches at this venue. They’ve also scored just 15 times at Goodison Park and need to seriously improve their output in Merseyside if they are to beat the drop this year.


Man City

City weren’t at their imperious best last weekend, however, they still managed to collect all three points and remain on course for the treble. Pep’s men were also in UCL action in midweek, picking up a decent 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu and giving themselves a significant advantage ahead of the return leg.

The visitors possess the second best away form in the division and have won ten of their 16 matches on the road. They have tended to struggle at fellow top six sides, however, they’ve been close to perfection when visiting bottom half sides. They’ve won nine of their ten away trips to sides situated tenth or below and will be confident of avoiding any slipups here.

City have a one point advantage over Arsenal, yet they also have a game in hand. The title is in their own hands and even if they somehow drop points at Goodison Park, they should still have enough to clinch top spot this year.


Head to Head

Everton did manage to take a point off Manchester City when they met earlier in the campaign (1-1). Nevertheless, their recent record against this opposition is poor.

Overall, they’ve won just 11 of their last 34 meetings with City, yet you have to rewind all the way back to January 2017 to find the last time that Everton won in this fixture (4-0).

City have won 17 of the last 34 meetings between these clubs and that includes nine of the last ten.

Prior to their 1-1 draw earlier in the campaign, the previous stalemate between these two came back in August 2017.


Key Betting Stats

  • Despite their excellent record on the road, Man City have still conceded in 69% of their away matches.
  • Everton have avoided defeat in three of their five home matches against top six opposition
  • Everton the joint-lowest home scorers (alongside Southampton) this season. They’ve netted just 15 times here.
  • The visitors have the best away defence in the PL and have been breached on just 14 occasions.
  • City have been breached in four of their last five away matches
  • The visitors have scored more second half goals than any other top flight side (46)
  • Dwight McNeil is Everton’s top goal-scorer and has scored four of his seven goals in the last month
  • 94% of Everton matches have featured three or more cards so far this season.


Match Prediction

City don’t look like dropping points at any stage, however, this won’t be easy for them. Everton are full of confidence and desperately need the points. They are attacking with gusto and should find the back of the net in this one.
