Recent respective form guides

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last six home games, winning five of them, and drawing the other one. During these games, Sky Blues have smashed 14 goals past the opposition and conceded a paltry 1.

The Toffees have had a decent run of form away from home recently, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 4 have been let in at the wrong end.

Manchester City's total of 13 points from their 5 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.

Everton lie just outside the playoff positions in the Barclays Premier League, picking up 7 from their 4 games so far.
