Predicted Manchester City Line-up To Face Everton In The Premier League
Manchester City will look to take a step closer to winning the Premier League title when they take on Everton at the Goodison Park on Saturday.
The Cityzens sit on top of the league table with 81 points from 30 games and need two more wins to win the title. Manager Pep Guardiola will be hoping to get one over Sam Allardyce’s Toffees to set up a possible title victory against rivals Manchester United next weekend.
Probable Manchester City XI
Manager: Pep Guardiola
Ederson Moraes (GK)
The Brazilian has been sensational between the sticks and will hope to continue in the same vein of form on Saturday.
Kyle Walker (RB)
The England international has been easily one of the best right-backs in the Premier League this season. A definite starter.
Vincent Kompany (CB)
In the heart of the defence, captain Vincent Kompany is expected to start again, with John Stones out with a concussion.
Nicolas Otamendi (CB)
The Argentine has been one of the most improved players under Guardiola this term and is a guaranteed starter against the Toffees.
Oleksandr Zinchenko (LB)
The youngster has performed admirably in the left-back position, in the absence of Benjamin Mendy and Fabian Delph. He should start at the Goodison Park.
At the base of the midfield, Brazilian international Fernandinho is a sure starter for the champions-elect.
Raheem Sterling (RW)
Sterling has been in fine form this season and has been scoring goals regularly. A definite starter on the right-hand side.
Kevin De Bruyne (CM)
Kevin De Bruyne will take the field against Everton and provide the creative edge going forward.
David Silva (CM)
Pairing up with De Bruyne in the middle of the park should be his usual partner in crime, David Silva. Will feature from the kickoff.
Leroy Sane (LW)
The German speedster can be a handful for any defence, with his pace and direct movement. The second-highest assist maker in the league with 11 assists, he will start on the left-hand side.
Gabriel Jesus (ST)
The Brazilian was in fine form during the international break and netted in the Selecao’s 1-0 win over Germany. With Sergio Aguero not completely fit, Jesus is expected to lead the line for City.
