Manchester City vs Everton Stats

The Blues from Manchester were kept at bay during their meeting with Chelsea, which was only the second time this season. The previous being the game against Liverpool in early October, which comes to show that City are struggling away from home when to facing another title challenger. It might have been totally different given they were playing without their undoubtedly best players in the face of Aguero and De Bruyne.

Everton are on a poor form recently, having won just a single game from their last 5 outings. They have scored only four in these games, while conceded the same amount. All Everton fans hopes will lie on the shoulders of summer signing Richarlison who is the man on form for the Toffees and he already has eight goals in the league to his name. Being just two points below 6th placed Manchester United, Everton will be directly involved in the battle for European qualification if they manage to better their performances on the pitch.
