Everton vs. Manchester City Betting Tips 26/02/2022

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Everton will welcome Premier League leaders Manchester City to Goodison Park for their EPL Matchday 27 clash. The game kicks off by 23:00 IST on Saturday, 26th February 2022.

The Toffees are locked in a battle for survival with fellow strugglers Burnley, Newcastle, Norwich, and Watford and will hope to get a miracle from this encounter. Manchester City, on their part, have seen their lead at the top of the table cut to 6 points and in danger of being cut to 3 points if Liverpool defeats Leeds at Anfield in midweek.

Teams Status

Here is the latest form and team news for Everton and Manchester City:

Everton Form and Team News

Frank Lampard’s Everton have found themselves in the bottom half of the league table this season, a mere 4 points above the drop zone, having played a game less than Watford, who are in the 18th position. Their struggles led to the recent appointment of Lampard, who has recorded mixed results since his appointment.

In their last five league games, they have lost 4 and won 1, losing last time out away at Southampton. In 23 games this term, they have scored 28 times and conceded 40, garnering a total of 22 points in that period. Winger Demarai Gray leads the scoreboard for Everton with 5 goals and 2 assists in the league this far.

For their form and team news, Everton are missing a handful of players at the moment. Demarai Gray, Yerry Mina, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Fabian Delph, Tom Davies, and Ben Godfrey are sidelined with injuries and most likely will not play any part in their clash over the weekend.

Manchester City Form and Team News

Pep Guardiola’s City were brought down from their lofty heights at home to Tottenham as they lost only their second home game all season. Harry Kane’s late goal ensured that the Citizens left empty-handed, and they will hope to get back to winning ways in this fixture.

City have been in exquisite form all season, winning 20, drawing 3, and losing 3 out of 26 games played this term, with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss from their last 5 league fixtures. They have scored 63 goals and conceded 17, with Englishman Raheem Sterling being their top scorer with 10 goals and 1 assist.

For their team news, Manchester City will be missing Steffen Zackary, Cole Palmer, Gabriel Jesus, and Jack Grealish, who are sidelined with injuries, and Kyle Walker, who is currently unavailable.

Tipster’s Angle

Everton face an uphill task keeping out a Manchester City team who are desperate to return to winning ways after witnessing Liverpool cut down their lead at the top of the table.

Equally, Everton are also under pressure to escape relegation, making the fixture of great importance to both sides. Here are our thoughts on the most likely outcomes to expect from this fixture:

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.54

City have scored the second-highest tally in the league this season and are already on 97 goals for the season in all competitions. This game has a history of being a high-scoring affair in recent times.

Four out of the last five meetings between these two sides ended with at least 3 goals. We expect an open game, with over 2 goals. Over 2.5 goals is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.54 odds.

Tip: Manchester City To Win @ 1.304

Everton are under pressure to escape relegation, but City have a bigger aim to stay top of the league. We expect a swift response to their loss at home to Tottenham, and all three points should be claimed by Guardiola’s men in a routine win. Manchester City to win is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.304 odds.


Everton will host the free-scoring Citizens who want to respond to their loss last time out. Both sides met four times last season, and City won in all four meetings. We expect an exciting football game as is expected of Pep Guardiola’s teams.
