Everton v Manchester City Premier League Betting Tips 26/02/2022

Everton v Manchester City

Everton are struggling to make progress under new manager Frank Lampard. The Toffees rarely win and find themselves just four points off the relegation places. Lampard welcomes his former club Manchester City to Goodison Park this weekend and the Citizens head to Merseyside fresh from a home loss against Spurs, so it’s time for our Everton v Manchester City Premier League Betting Tips 26/02/2022. Can Everton take advantage and turn their season around? Or will City bounce back with a win? This match kicks off at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, and it will be shown live on Sky Sports. 

Team News/Form

Everton’s plummet down the Premier League table continued last week as they lost 2-0 at Southampton. The result leaves the Toffees with five losses in their last six league matches, and they are just two points above the relegation zone. Despite losing their first Premier League match in 15 after a 3-2 home loss against Spurs, City remain top of the table by three points. 

In terms of team news, Everton’s Demarai Gray and Abdoulaye Doucoure may be back in the squad following their respective injuries. However, the game may come too soon for Tom Davies, Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph and Ben Godfrey. They are all ruled out with groin injuries. City striker Gabriel Jesus may return to the squad, and Zack Steffen remains doubtful. Midfielder Jack Grealish (calf) is ruled out. 

Match Winner Betting Odds

Unsurprisingly, Manchester City are the overwhelming favourites for this fixture considering the form of the two sides. Everton has won their last two at home after beating Brentford 4-1 and Leeds 3-0. There could be value in backing the Toffees as an outside option, with BetVictor offering the best odds of 11/1. A draw between these sides seems unlikely. Everton has drawn just once in their 12 home matches this season. Also, City rarely draw. The Citizens have drawn only three of their 38 matches in all competitions this season. As a result, there is not much for Betfred’s 11/2 odds for a tie. For this fixture, City is our choice this weekend. Guardiola’s side has won their last nine matches against Everton, and we are backing them to win once more on Merseyside. At 2/7, Boylesports has the best odds for an away win. 

Under/Over Total Goals Betting

With low odds on a potential Manchester City win, looking in the alternative markets, or going for a combination bet may be a better option. The under/over market is a good choice, and our tip is to back over 2.5 goals at Goodison Park. Everton has seen over 2.5 goals in six of their last eight in all competitions. In addition, Frank Lampard’s side rarely keeps clean sheets, which could lead to further goals. Everton has failed to shut out the opposition in 13 of their last 14 matches. Furthermore, City are usually among the goals, scoring two or more in their last five matches. SBK again have the best offer for over 2.5 goals at 10/17. 

Anytime Goalscorer Bets

Goals have been regular at Goodison, but few have come from a regular Everton goalscorer. As a result, there are few great options in the Toffees’ ranks for an anytime goalscorer. Although, young star Anthony Gordon is finding form, and he scored and put in a man of the match performance in his last home game against Leeds. Another Gordon goal this weekend could be a good outside option with 36/5 odds, provided by Sporting Index. However, the best value in the goalscorer market is likely to come from City’s ranks, particularly from Raheem Sterling or Riyad Mahrez. Sterling has four goals in his last three, and he netted in the last meeting between these sides. Another goal for the English forward comes with odds of 13/10 at Bet365. But Mahrez is our goalscorer pick this week. The Algerian is in sensational form, scoring five in his last five. He has also netted in his last two appearances, and Unibet have the best odds at 6/5. 

Everton must find form quickly to avoid getting tangled up in a relegation battle. They have a hard ask this weekend against in-form City. But can the Toffees hurt the wounded Citizens following their rare loss last weekend?
