Everton v Man City Match Preview & Betting Tips

Two whole games into the season and Chelsea are doomed, Sunderland are down, Leicester are better than Barcelona and Roberto Soldado remains crap. None of which has anything to do with an enticing clash between Everton and Manchester City at Goodison Park. Super Duper Sunday with all the glitz and glamour of actually being there except you aren't having to pay a quid to an eight-year-old skinhead to "look after yer car".


Roberto Martinez' men are something of an enigma as always having played poorly to scrape a draw with newly promoted Watford on the opening day before walloping Southampton 3-0 away on a day their consistently inconsistent stars all turned up and took advantage of a makeshift defence with a mix of brute force, slick passing and keeping the ball away from Tom Cleverley. It was arguably the outstanding performance of this embryonic season so far and suggests they may do considerably better than my pre-season prediction of 14th.

Manchester City are flying majestically like an incredibly expensive eagle. Two 3-0 wins so far including last week's battering of the evil club from South-West London has seen them installed as favourites for the league now that Yaya Toure is back from last season's sabbatical and half the squad have realised they're nearly 30 and really need to pull their finger out to get a new contract. I still don't trust Pellegrini to lead this squad through a whole season to win the league once Europe gets in the way, but we shall see.

The away side are favourites, of course, at a not too generous best price 8/11 across the board. The draw is as high as 16/5 with SportingBet and you can get 21/5 on The Toffees with BetVictor. As good as City have been, big clubs tend to struggle at Goodison and if Lukaku and Barkley are on their game, you fear for their ability to record a third clean sheet of the season. Therefore the draw looks a decent shout. 

Draw – 31/10 – 888Sport


Turning our attentions to the goalscorer market, as good as these sides are going forward, on the basis that a draw is no bad result for anyone, 12/1 with various firms on No Goalscorer looks huge value. Everton's centre-halves are sure to be in for a tough afternoon and both Phil Jagielka and John Stones likely to pick up a booking. 

12/1 No Goalscorer

Phil Jagielka to be booked – 11/4 Betfred

John Stones to be booked – 5/2 Betfred
