City Could Struggle Away To Everton
Everton To Hold City To A Draw
Matt Le Tissier gives freebets.com an exclusive betting tip for today’s crucial Premier League clash between Everton and Manchester City at Goodison Park, live from 17:30 on Sky Sports 1.
The Toffees have had a great first season under Roberto Martinez and can consolodate fifth spot in the table with a win today, which would also put pressure on fourth placed Arsenal to get a result tomorrow.
The ramifications of today’s result are much more severe for Manchester City though. Manuel Pellegrini’s side are three points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool with a game in hand and are 8 goals better off, so a win would see them inch closer to the title, anything less would hand the initiative back to Liverpool who don’t play until Monday.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “The Toffees have a fantastic record against City, winning nine of the last 13 meetings but I think this is another game which will end with both parties taking a point.
The draw is backable at 10/3 with Betfair Sportsbook. If, however, Manuel Pellegirini’s side do win, book the open top bus!”
Leighton Baines should have recovered from a knock sustained against Southampton and should return to the side along with Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin, with Stones and Alcaraz ready to start if the centre-back duo haven’t recovered in time.
David Silva and Jesus Navas have both been out injured, but Pellegrini may choose to risk them if they have any chance of making it, while Gael Clichy could start at left-back once again.
