Manchester City vs. Everton Match Analysis and Prediction

Everton has a golden chance to fight for European competition on the final matchday as they clash with champions Manchester City. The match schedules for Sunday at Etihad Stadium with kickoff at 6 pm.

The Toffees are currently positioned eight on the table and are only three points off the top six. On the other hand, Man City will have more than one eye on next week’s Champions League final.

Consistency remains a significant issue for Carlo Ancelotti pretty much of the 2020-21 campaign. However, last weekend’s win over Wolverhampton through a Richarlison goal ensures the Toffees have a go at Europa League.

Moreover, they trail sixth-placed West Ham by three points but pack a significantly worse goal difference. A loss this weekend puts the Toffees in contention for a Europa League Conference Cup.

The spot comes in high contention, given Arsenal is closing in with a home match against Brighton while Tottenham taking on Leicester City. It is a hard task for Ancelotti, who is without back-to-back wins since March.

On the other hand, Manchester City comes off an entertaining 3-2 loss to Brighton. City does not exactly have much to play for on final matchday. Pep already wrapped up the third title in four seasons. However, judging by recent fixtures, it looks like the Citizens have taken their foot off the pedal.
