Everton vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 17 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
The Citizens are continuing their mesmerizing run towards the PL title. They are at the top of the table with a seven-point lead, and have a game in hand as well. They have also scored the second-most number of goals, and have conceded the least in return.
They are on a record-breaking winning streak at the moment, and have set sights on securing all trophies available.
Meanwhile, the Toffees are going through an inconsistent run at the moment, and their title hopes early in the season seem like a memory of distant past.
They are also conceding goals in huge numbers, and most importantly, they have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Manchester City to post a win this Wednesday at the Goodison Park.

Everton vs Manchester City Prediction
Carlo Ancelotti’s men lost 0-2 on the road the last match-day, against the relegation-threatened Fulham. In the meantime, the Citizens won 3-0 at home the past game week, against Tottenham.
Going on, Pep’s men are on a 16-fixture winning run, and they are also on a 23-game unbeaten run. They have scored a total of 26 goals from the preceding nine match-ups.
Note that they are also on a nine-match winning run on the road, and had scored 17 goals from their preceding five games away from home as well.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in five of their last six matches, and they had let in a total of nine goals from the past three fixtures alone.
At home, they were winless in seven of their former eight appearances at home, and the sole win during this stretch had come in the FA Cup.
In addition, Pep’s men also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.
As such, expect Manchester City to have a cracker of a performance this Wednesday at the Goodison Park.
