Manchester City -120
Out-of-form Everton host reigning champions Manchester City at Goodison Park on Saturday looking to kick-start their league campaign.
The Toffees head into this clash on the back of a 1-1 draw with West Ham in the FA Cup third round on Tuesday night. Roberto Martinez’s men looked to be heading out of the competition, until stoppage-time when striker Romelu Lukaku forced home an equaliser. Everton had suffered four straight defeats prior to draw and have drop down into 13th place in the Premier League table, just four points clear of the relegation zone. The Toffees' struggle have been highlighted by the fact they have failed to score in four out their last six top-flight games. Martinez himself has managed against City 11 times and suffered ten defeats.
Premier League champions Manchester City recorded a last-gasp 2-1 victory over championship Sheffield Wednesday in their FA Cup tie, with James Milner netting a brace. City’s form of late has been outstanding with five wins in their last six outings in all competitions. Their recent good form has put them joint top of the Premier League with Chelsea, the Blues topping the table by alphabetical order. City are the joint top scorers with Chelsea in the top-flight and will look to profit from playing against an Everton team with second worst defensive record in the Premier League.
Free Soccer Pick:
Manchester City are firing on all cylinders and Everton's defense has holes everywhere. Even though the odds on a City win might look good at first, keep in mind that this team has conceded more than 1 goal numerous times this season, and Everton are bound to win sometime. A safer bet lies on the goals scored.
