Predicted line-ups

Monday Premier League preview featuring Manchester City v Everton

Fact me

  • Manchester City lost their last Premier League meeting with Everton 0-4. It was Pep Guardiola’s heaviest ever defeat in league competition as a manager.
  • Indeed, it was Everton’s biggest ever Premier League win over Man City, with the Toffees scoring with all four of their shots on target.
  • Manchester City are unbeaten in six Premier League home matches against Everton, winning three and drawing three. Prior to this run City had lost four in a row at home to the Merseyside club.
  • Everton last won back to back matches against Manchester City in May 2011, when they won four in a row.
  • Pep Guardiola’s side have lost just one of their last 22 home Premier League games (W13 D8 L1), which was against eventual champions Chelsea in December 2016.
  • Wayne Rooney’s last away appearance in the Premier League for Everton was a 5-1 loss to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
  • Rooney’s goal on the opening day against Stoke was his 199th in the Premier League, putting him one away from becoming only the second player to bag 200 in the competition after Alan Shearer (260).
  • Only Alan Shearer (11) has scored more goals against Manchester City in the Premier League than Wayne Rooney (8).
  • Sergio Aguero has failed to score in his last six Premier League appearances against Everton, his longest current drought versus a top-flight side.
  • Aguero needs one more goal to become the all-time highest ever non-European goalscorer in Premier League history – he’s currently level with Dwight Yorke on 123 goals.
  • Before last season, Pep Guardiola had beaten every club he’d faced in league competition within his first two meetings against them. Everton are now looking to become the first team he’s failed to beat in any of his first three matches.
