After suffering its first Premier League loss of the season and falling out of first place, Manchester City looks to get back on track on Saturday as the club hosts talented Everton in the day’s first game. City is in second place with 41 points, while Everton is in seventh with 24 points. City enters the weekend just one point behind first-place Liverpool.
Manchester City: City is dealing with a ton of injuries, the latest to David Silva and Fernandinho, and though both players are important to the squad, they have the depth to win this in their potential absence. But, it won’t come easy. On Tuesday, Guardiola told reporters that he is down to 15 players for this game. Sergio Aguero is still out, as is Kevin de Bruyne.
Everton: James McCarthy has been out since January with his fibula and tibia fracture, but otherwise the team enters the game healthy. Andre Gomes picked up a little knock last time out, but he finished the match against Watford and should be good to go.
