Ederson should be back between the sticks for the hosts after receiving a red card against Wolves. Gabriel Jesus was fit enough to make it to the bench against Sheffield but Sergio Aguero is expected to lead the line. Ilkay Gundogan, Nicolas Otamendi and Benjamin Mendy should be pushing for starts for City. Pep Guardiola will be without John Stones, David Silva, Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte are on the sidelines due to injury.
Fabian Delph should be back into the starting eleven for the visitors. Carlo Ancelotti could revert to the three-man defence with Yerry Mina, Lucas Digne and Seamus Coleman returning to the sid. Alex Iwobi, Andre Gomes, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Cuco Martina are out injured, while Morgan Schneiderlin and Beni Baningime are doubtful to start.

Kevin De Bruyne is turning out to be one of the players of the season in the league. The midfield ace has seven goals and 12 assists for Manchester City with a pass accuracy of 81.4% from 1564 minutes so far.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be lethal in the attacking front for Everton. The 22-year-old has eight goals and a pass accuracy of 63.3% from 18 appearances this season.
Sergio Aguero got his goal-scoring tally to double figures after netting one against Sheffield. Aguero has 10 goals and two assists with a pass accuracy of 80.2% from 909 minutes in the league this season.
Richarlison has also been a key figure in the attacking midfield region for Everton. The Brazilian has six goals and three assists and a pass accuracy of 67% from 20 appearances this season.
Though Carlo Ancelotti’s inclusion as the manager of Everton has brought in life in the club, it should be Manchester City who is likely to walk away with all three points.
