There’s a lot more riding on this game for Everton than there is for Manchester City, with the Toffees needing points to secure European football next season.
However, Citizens boss Pep Guardiola will want to finish the campaign on a high, ahead of the trophy presentation, and he will be keen that his team don’t take their eyes off the ball ahead of next weekend’s Champions League final.
In terms of team news, Guardiola has confirmed he has a fully fit squad, with Sergio Aguero having returned to training after a knock. The Argentine will be able to say farewell to the fans during his last game at the Etihad. The only absentee will be Joao Cancelo after his sending off against Brighton.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Everton:
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Mendy, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva, Mahrez, Aguero, Foden
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is sweating over the fitness of James Rodriguez after he missed the win over Wolves due to fatigue. Seamus Coleman (knock) and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (knee) have both been ruled out.
Everton’s Predicted XI:
Pickford, Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne, Doucoure, Allan, Gomes, Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
The bookmakers have made City the strong favourites with Betway pricing them at 4/9 for the win. A draw is 4/1 with Bet 365 while a victory for Everton is currently 13/2 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 1-1
