Manchester City have the perfect opportunity to temporarily displace Liverpool at the summit with the Reds touted to play their weekend clash after City’s encounter with Everton. Guardiola’s men have not lost a match in all competitions since their narrow defeat against Aston Villa back in the first week of December as the Sky Blues look to continue their domination in the league and defend their crown.
Everton, on the other hand, are on the run of three successive stalemates as Dyche’s men continue their hunt for revival after being handed a 10-point deduction early on in the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.
The home side are without any injury concerns with Pep Guardiola getting a fully fit squad to choose from at his disposal.
Phil Foden thundered a magnificent hattrick to save faces for the champions as he’s touted to operate on the left flank once again with Portuguese maestro Bernardo Silva strutting his stuff on the opposite flank.
