Everton XI vs. Man City prediction 26-year-old, £33,00 player returns to start for Sean Dyche

Everton is gearing up for another Premier League fixture this weekend, facing the daunting challenge of an away match against Manchester City.

The Toffees haven’t secured a victory at City’s stadium since 2010, and City has

dominated their recent encounters, winning 12 out of the last 13 matches

across all competitions against Everton.

Anticipation among fans is mixed with apprehension, particularly as relegation

rivals Luton Town and Sheffield United are set to face each other on the same day.

Manager Sean Dyche faces a formidable task in assembling a squad capable of

competing at the Etihad Stadium.

Here’s the expected Everton lineup for the Manchester City match:

Dyche is likely to make three changes from the team that salvaged a late draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

Jordan Pickford will continue in goal, with a slightly altered back four

to address the challenges posed by the upcoming opponents.

While Ben Godfrey has been performing well at full-back recently, Seamus

Coleman’s return from injury suggests he may reclaim his position as club captain for added stability.

James Tarkowski and Jarrad Branthwaite are expected to partner in central defense, with Vitaliy Mykolenko providing defensive support.

Amadou Onana, who was uncertain for the Spurs game due to fitness concerns, is expected

to start, possibly with a limited playing time to gradually regain match fitness for the crucial upcoming

match against Crystal Palace.

In midfield, Idrissa Gana Gueye is set to continue alongside James Garner, allowing for a more advanced role for Garner, who impressed in the previous game.

Given the challenging nature of the match, there may be an opportunity to rest Dwight McNeil, who appeared fatigued in the last game.

Lewis Dobbin could potentially replace him, bringing pace and directness to the team.

Jack Harrison is expected to retain his position on the opposite flank, with both wingers aiming

to support Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has been experiencing a goal drought, having not scored in his

last 18 appearances across all competitions.
