Everton are set to play hosts to Manchester City at Goodison Park on Tuesday for their latest Premier League assignment.

Everton come into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over struggling Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. A late second-half goal from Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson ensured victory for Carlo Ancelotti's Everton as Sheffield United continue to be winless in the league so far.

Manchester City, on the other hand, beat Newcastle United 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Goals from German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Spain international Ferran Torres secured the win for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Everton vs Manchester City Prediction

Everton have done well this season despite the absence of James Rodriguez in midfield. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has arguably been the Toffees standout performer so far, with the England international scoring 11 goals in 15 Premier League games and impressing with his all-round play.

Manchester City, on the other hand, have been a confusing side to watch this season. They endured a slow start and continue to be an inconsistent outfit. Centre-back Ruben Dias has proved to be a good acquisition, while manager Pep Guardiola will hope that veteran striker Sergio Aguero remains fit for the remainder of the season.

Everton sit second in the league table, three points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester City who have a game in hand. While the Toffees have been a good side so far, Manchester City might just have enough to emerge victorious against the Merseyside outfit.

Prediction: Everton 1-2 Manchester City
