After losing to Spurs last weekend, Manchester City will be keen to get their Premier League campaign back on track here with an away trip to the inconsistent Everton.

The match betting suggests a straightforward task for the current league champions with City at 1.28, the Draw 5.75 and Everton as big as 10.00.

City also saw off Everton 3-0 this season in the league and this fixture last term ended 1-3 to the Manchester side – you can back a repeat of that score at 12.00.

It’s generally a fixture that produces goals too – 5 of the last 6 clashes saw OVER 2.5 GOALS scored, so this might appeal at 1.57, but in contrast both teams DIDN’T score in the last three – suggesting City get most of the goals in this clash.

You can back both teams NOT to score at 1.75.

City have also won their last nine when playing Everton and are unbeaten in their last 12 against the Toffeemen, so things have not been good for the Merseysiders in this fixture in recent years.

In fact, Everton haven’t even scored in the last three meetings (all comps) as they faced-off in the FA Cup last season too. You can back City to win ‘to nil’ at 2.00.

As always with City, the team news is key when it comes to the scoring markets as they often chop and change their side. But Mahrez at 4.50 (1st) or 1.90 (anytime) figures well in the betting, with De Bruyne at 6.00 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime).

Everton’s Richarlison, who has scored 4 league goals this season, might be the home side’s best chance of scoring at 15.00 (1st) or 5.00 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game City like to win and often do! The 1.28 in the match betting is short, so we’ll opt for goals here in the OVER 2.5 goals market at 1.57. If you are feeling brave then you might want to go OVER 3.5 GOALS at 2.37.
