Both teams will come out with a sense of urgency, but for very different reasons, when Manchester City visits Everton on Saturday for an English Premier League match. League leader and reigning champion City (20-3-3) comes into Goodison Park off a shocking loss last Saturday. The 3-2 setback against Spurs allowed Liverpool back into the title race, with City’s lead shrinking to three points. Everton (6-4-13) is in a battle of its own, trying to stay clear of the relegation zone, with just a two-point margin keeping it in 16th place. The Cityzens have won nine straight meetings in all competitions and took a 3-0 victory in the first matchup between the teams this season.

Featured Game | Everton vs. Manchester City
Why you should back Manchester City
City has shown a strong ability to bounce back from its losses this season, and it surely has confidence it can do it against the Toffees. It has lost just once in the last 17 league meetings (12-4-1), outscoring Everton 36-15 over that span. The Cityzens lost their EPL opener to Spurs this season, then exploded for 10 goals in their next two games. Following their second loss back in October, they went on a 12-game win streak. They have shut out the Toffees in three straight overall meetings while scoring 10 goals. They held the ball for 78 percent of the last matchup.
Raheem Sterling, Rodri and Bernardo Silva all scored in that 3-0 home victory in October, and they should be prominent players again in this one. Sterling leads the team with 10 goals, while Riyad Mahrez (eight) and Silva (seven) also are among the 16 City players with at least one. City is second in the league with 63 goals scored while allowing the fewest at 17. It also has a sizeable lead in possession at 68.2 and has fired almost 200 more shots than Everton (474-285) and put nearly twice as many on target (163-84). Ederson leads the EPL with 14 clean sheets.
Why you should back Everton
Five of the Toffees’ six wins and 18 of their 28 goals have come at Goodison Park. They have won their past two home games, including a 4-1 FA Cup victory against Brentford. Star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has returned, though he is scoreless in his five games after missing more than four months. He scored in all three games to start the season before his injury, so he could be due for a breakthrough.
Everton should come out playing with some fire as it fights to remain in the top flight. Frank Lampard took over as manager a month ago, and Everton is 2-0-3 in five games overall since then. He is a legendary football figure in England and should be able to get the attention of the players. The Toffees have eight goals in their last four in all competitions and have scored at least once in nine of the past 11 games. Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is tied for fifth in the league with 71 saves, and he is a strong leader in the back.
