MANCHESTER CITY FC vs EVERTON FC Match Preview & Analysis

Manchester City will finally lift the Premier League trophy on the final day of the season, even though they wrapped up the title some weeks ago after a sensational comeback from a poor start to the season.

Despite being down in 13th place after eight games, City went on an incredible 15 match winning run to propel themselves to the top of the table and leave everyone else stranded in their wake.

With a squad of immense talent, manager Pep Guardiola has kept everyone happy by giving them all plenty of game time, and rotating regularly without any noticeable difference in quality.

Everton will be looking to dampen the title celebrations with a win of their own here. In 8th place, their dreams of European football next season hang in the balance and need either Spurs or West Ham to lose their respective games.

City will want to finish strongly here with the Champions League final on the horizon.

Teams Preview

Manchester City FC Preview

Form Guide (all comps): WWLWL

Original predicted finish: 1st   

Likely finish: 1st 

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Will be determined to see out a fantastic season in style

     A win would boost their confidence before Champions League final

Reasons to be fearful:

     They could have one eye on the final

     Everton won’t be a pushover

Manchester City have looked like champions for so many weeks now that, when they beat Everton back in February as part of their 15-match winning run, it appeared only a matter of time before they were officially crowned.

In addition, this week defender Ruben Dias has been named Player of the Season by the Football Writers’ Association, a huge honour considering that this is his first season in the Premier League at the age of just 24.

With fans back in the stadium, they will be determined to put in a good performance and lift the trophy off the back of a victory.

With the Champions League final just a week away, they’ll want to build some confidence going into that.

Star Man – Ilkay Gundogan

While Ruben Dias has been named best player, Gundogan has been instrumental to City this season, with his 17 goals helping them to a Premier League title and a Champions League final.

Everton FC Preview

Form Guide (all comps): LWDLW

Original predicted finish: 8th 

Likely finish: 9th 

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Have had a good season, despite late slump

     Quality strikers can make it a difficult day for City

Reasons to be fearful:

     Were beaten by City earlier in the season

     Could finish as low as 10th if both Arsenal and Leeds win

Everton have enjoyed a good season under Carlo Ancelotti, although fans will be left to think about what could have been after starting the season in such style.

The Toffees sat atop the Premier League table for three weeks at the start of the campaign, and have also flirted with the top four at times in what has been an up and down campaign for them.

Since the start of 2021 however, it has been a largely inconsistent period, winning nine of their 21 games. Their away form has been largely to blame – indeed, it’s only the 15th best in the league this season.

They can still spoil the party here, of course. Calvert-Lewin has enjoyed a good season in front of goal, while Richarlison is a player who can create something out of nothing.

Star Man – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

The England striker will likely join up with his country for the Euros this summer, following a good season where he has scored 21 goals.

MANCHESTER CITY FC vs EVERTON FC Winning Prediction

     Man City would love to win the game in front of fans

     Guardiola will play a strong team to get them ready for next week’s final

     If Everton play well they can frustrate City

Every Premier League title winner deserves the opportunity to celebrate in front of their fans, and City will do everything they can to win the game here, too.

With the club losing their last game to Brighton, it will make them all the more determined to win here and set themselves up nicely for the Champions League final six days later.

Everton are a team who can turn on the quality at any time they choose, but can also be poor when not quite at it.
