Man City v Everton (Preview)

Everton travel to Manchester City tomorrow for the Premiership’s earliest ever kick-off, 11:15am at The City of Manchester Stadium, after a much improved performance against Dinamo Bucharest which will raise confidence levels among the players.

Tim Cahill is one player who will be relishing the chance to follow up Thursday’s performance and stick to winning ways, and goes back to Man City with mixed memories of his last visit there, where he scored his first Everton goal, and was promptly given his first Everton red-card for lifting his shirt over his head in celebration.

“Last season’s game at Manchester City has got mixed memories for me with what happened,” he said. “But those times are over now and it is time to look forward to what we have got to do at the minute. It is not looking very good for us at the minute but one result can turn that around for us.”

Thursday’s encounter, however, left Everton missing two key players, and David Moyes will be without Mikel Arteta and Tony Hibbert who were both injured by the Romanians at Goodison Park.

Simon Davies is 50/50 for the game tomorrow, after missing Thursday’s game with a jarred ankle, while James McFadden is feeling his groin. The treatment room this season certainly isn’t as lonely as it was last!

Man City boss Stuart Pearce watched Everton beat Bucharest, and was impressed with what he saw, stating that Everton’s current league position was certainly a false one.

“They didn’t look like a side at the bottom of the table when they beat Dinamo Bucharest. They are in a false position. They did really well.

“Everton played with confidence and will be in the top half come the end of the season.

“With the Premiership being so tight, they haven’t had the rub of the green.”
