Everton vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City remains spoilt of choices this campaign with four trophies up for takes. This weekend they embark on their first trophy chase in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday with kickoff at 8:30 pm.

The Toffees advanced to the last eight following a thrilling 5-4 win over Tottenham Hotspur last time out, while Manchester City eased past Swansea City to book a trip to the last eight this weekend.

Bernard’s move to Everton did not go as planned since his arrival. However, we witnessed the Brazilian’s brilliance as the side edged out Jose Mourinho with a 97th-minute winner. It ended up proving decisive in extra time round five, as the Toffees overcame Tottenham last month.

Since their thrilling win, the fortune for Toffees remains mixed, especially in the Premier League. Carlo Ancelotti’s men recorded wins over West Bromwich, Southampton, and Liverpool. However, the side suffered back-to-back defeats to Chelsea and Burnley. The losses leave the side five points off a Champions League spot with ten games left to play.

Manchester City secured a spot in the last eight of the Champions League after a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia Monchengladbach. With 14 points clear off the top of the table, City can risk focusing on other cup titles. In 13 matches, the side only failed to notch more than two goals.
