Manchester City will be determined to bounce back from last week’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur when they travel to Goodison Park in Saturday’s evening kick-off.
The hosts are still adjusting to life under new boss Frank Lampard after a topsy-turvy start to the Chelsea legend’s reign. Lampard saw his team get off to a winning start in the FA Cup, before a defeat Newcastle in the league. They managed a win against Leeds after that but slipped again last week with the 2-0 away defeat to Southampton. It leaves Everton struggling at the wrong end of the table, in 16th spot and just two points off the bottom three.
Probably the biggest Premier League result last week saw Spurs stun the champions and snatch the win against City – ending the Citizens’ 13-game unbeaten streak. Pep Guardiola will be expecting his side to return to winning ways with a win that will keep their lead – now just three points above Liverpool at the top of the table.
Raheem Sterling is City’s top scorer this season with ten Premier League goals in 22 games, as well as scoring the last time these two met.
