Both Manchester City and Everton are expected to miss a couple of players on December 31. However, for the reigning Premier League champions, that’s not a big deal – they got a very, very long bench. For the Toffees, however, missing a couple of key men could equal big trouble.

Before Betting on Manchester City vs Everton

Manchester City will be without injured Ruben Diaz, a center-back who’ll probably be replaced by Manuel Akanji on Saturday. Kalvin Phillips – who returned from Qatar with a few pounds more – is not yet fit to play, meaning that Rodri will probably assume the role of the box-to-box midfielder.

Although that’s not his natural position, the Spanish player usually does this job very well. What this means is that Man City’s injury problems shouldn’t give too much of a headache to coach Pep Guardiola.

It’s a whole different story when it comes to Everton’s manager Frank Lampard. He won’t be able to count on Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Andres Townsend, and James Garner. Still, even if they were 100% fit, the Toffees would still be huge underdogs against Man City.

Believe it or not but Manchester City are 10-0 against Everton in their last ten meetings. Further, in their last three Premier League meetings, Man City’s goalie Ederson kept a clean sheet each time. We think something similar might happen on Saturday as well.
