How Manchester City should line up vs Everton
Can Manchester City seal three points at Everton today?
Manchester City travel to Liverpool today to take on Everton. The Cityzens go into the game knowing that a win would get them in a position of sealing the title at Old Trafford next week.
Pep Guardiola, however, was not getting carried away. He believes that a lot is still to be done this season. Here's a summary of his pre-match press conference:
Team news: “John Stones has [a] concussion in his head from the last game of the international break," He feels really good but the rules say he must take seven days off so he is not available. The other ones are okay.”
On Aguero: “He is much, much better. We will see tomorrow if he is involved.”
On the Title: “It’s not already done. We need three games or two if we win the next two. Of course, we are in a good position, but it is not already done and we need to prepare for the next games in the Premier League and Champions League.
"I do not know how we are going to react tomorrow. I hope the same level as we have been this season, but I don’t know.”
On Everton: “[Under Sam Allardyce], Everton have been good. The results are better. Especially at home, the results are so strong. Everton at home last season was one of the best performances and we drew.
"I didn’t think we played that badly but when the result happens, you have to accept it. I think this season, the results have been much better. Goodison Park is always a tough ground.”
