The topmost tier of English football is the Premier League, and it will see its defending Champion in Manchester City travel to face Everton in what will be either team’s 26th game of the season. A victory for either side will help with the morale of the players in the upcoming fixtures.
Everton have been one of the better mid-table sides all season long. The team did really well at the start of the season but have slowed down since then. They do have genuine squad depth and players who are worthy of being at the club but for some reason, things are not going their way lately. Coach Marko Silva will be looking to make some changes in order to find the correct formation which will help this side get back in winnings ways. Another problem they have had all season long has been inconsistency, and if they fix that issue, it is clear that they will be contesting for a spot in the UEFA Europa League.
On the other hand, Manchester City have not stopped being dominant in English football. They do have one of the best squads in the entire world, and yet still their manager in Pep Guardiola is looking to strengthen them in many ways. They broke many records in their title run of last season, and have got themselves some work cut out as Liverpool are leading the table. The gap between the two teams is down to three points, and with since both teams have played each other twice, the fate of the title lies on the hands of other clubs. All they can do is win their upcoming games, and hope that Liverpool falters when they go up against another giant of this country.
