Everton FC v Manchester City
Goodison Park
Saturday 3rd May 17:30
Premier League Match 37

Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Everton 3-0 Arsenal (Naismith, Lukaku, O.G)
Sunderland 0-1 Everton (O.G)
Everton 2-3 Crystal Palace (Naismith, Mirallas)
Everton 2-0 Manchester United (Baines Pen, Mirallas)
Southampton 2-0 Everton

Manchester United's last 5 domestic results:

Manchester City 4-1 Southampton (Toure Pen, Nasri, Dzeko, Jovetic)
Liverpool 3-2 Manchester City (Silva, O.G.)
Manchester City 2-2 Sunderland (Fernandinho, Nasri)
Manchester City 3-1 West Brom (Zabaleta, Aguero, Demichelis)
Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester City (Dzeko, Toure)

Everton

Everton's hopes of 4th place finish and a 4th straight away win were crushed at St Mary's as Antolin Alcaraz and Seamus Coleman inadvertently put the ball through their net to hand Southampton a 2-0 victory. In the space of 5 matches, Everton have beaten both Arsenal and Manchester United yet lost to Crystal Palace and Southampton. Everton haven't drawn in the Premier League for 14 matches and haven't drawn at home for 12 matches, the longest of any side. Everton have scored in each of the last 9 home matches, the longest streak of any Premier League side ahead of Fulham and Chelsea (6).


It may be a disappointing finish to the season for Everton but their last victory in the league which came at home to Manchester United over former manager David Moyes was their 20th win of the campaign with 2 matches to spare and is the most Everton have won in a Premier League season to date. Everton have dropped points in just 5 of their 18 home matches this season including draws against Liverpool, West Brom and Tottenham along with defeats to Sunderland and Crystal Palace.

Possible Line Ups


Manchester City

Manchester City go into this game having taken advantage of Everton's Merseyside rivals Liverpool losing to Chelsea. Their 2-0 win away to Crystal Palace puts the title firmly in their hands knowing that if they win their remaining 3 matches, they'll be champions given their comfortable goal difference. Manchester City lost their last match in Merseyside 3-2 to Liverpool and have now scored in each of their last 5 away matches, only Liverpool can better that (13). Manchester City have also scored in each of their last 10 matches overall which is the best in the league at the moment.


Man City have played very well against the current top 10 teams in the league, 9 of which have been an almost permanent fixture. They have the chance to go top of this table joint with Chelsea should they defeat Everton. Of course, a win will take them joint top of the Premier League table as well for at least a day. Manchester City have scored 45 goals against top half teams this season which is the highest in the league ahead of Liverpool who have scored 41 goals.

Stats & Injuries


Everton: Everton are likely to be down to the bare bones as Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone, Lacina Traore and Bryan Oviedo are unlikely to play given how long they've been out whilst Gareth Barry will be ineligible to play against his parent club. Other injury concerns include Kevin Mirallas who is out for a season as well asPhil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin, Steven Pienaar and quite possibly Leighton Baines.

Manchester City: Both David Silva and Jesus Navas are unlikely to feature for Manchester City whilst Matija Nastasic also won't play.

Lose this and we need a point against Hull to guarantee at least sixth.

This has to be the most emotionally charged game for years. Short on numbers, due to injuries inconsistent form and poor defensive errors, is going to make this an extremely difficult fixture to get anything out of. We're going to have to play out of our skin for the win. But hey! that may not be the most popular of results. I don't know whether to cheer, boo, or wear a tee shirt with Noel Gallagher on it. The sooner this game is out of the way the better. :)

One request, if we lose as I suspect don't go fucking cheering about it in the match day thread. There's plenty on here who will be supporting Everton (strange I know), breath a sigh of relief to yourself but There's plenty who don't want to have to deal with Blues laughing and whooping if we conceed and or lose.

Surely everybody expects us to lose anyway?

Look at that team for christ sake.

If Jagielka doesn't make it back for this game, it will be horrible.

I don't think Shogun's predicted team is that bad, it's not a million miles away from what I would play. It's not inconceivable we get something from this game and I hope we go for it.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned. It's good news on Bainesy, looks like he will be fit to play.

If Lukaku and Barkley weren't so horribly out of form I'd give us a chance.

Lukaku does seem to like playing the big teams though so who knows.
