A stunning 5-1 victory on the road last time out versus Brighton & Hove Albion could hardly have come at a better time for Everton as they finally clambered their way out of the relegation spots in the Premier League with three matches to go.
They likely need more points on the board if they're to beat the drop this season, though, and that could be tough given the fact that Manchester City are the next visitors to Goodison Park.
After drawing away to Real Madrid in the Champions League this week, Pep Guardiola's side are now 21 matches unbeaten across all competitions as they continue their hunt for a famous treble this campaign.
Will the away side claim another three points in their title charge or can Toffees boss Sean Dyche mastermind a famous victory for the hosts?

Everton vs Manchester City prediction, odds
- Moneyline lean: Manchester City (-285)
- Score prediction: Everton 1-3 Manchester City
As expected, Manchester City have been made huge favourites for this clash, and for good reason.
City are now 21 matches unbeaten across all competitions after their 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in midweek Champions League action as they continue their run towards the Premier League title at Arsenal's potential expense.
City are also 12 matches unbeaten against Everton in competitive action, winning 10 of those games since their last loss in January 2017. However, a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium in the reverse league fixture this season could be a cause for concern, especially with The Toffees fighting to stave off relegation again.

Everton vs Manchester City: best bet
- Pick: Over 3.5 goals scored
- Odds: +150 (BetMGM)
At +150 with BetMGM, there's certainly some value here in leaning towards a bit of a goal fest.
As mentioned throughout, Manchester City remain in great form of late and come into this match as the Premier League's top scorers, netting 89 times through 35 matches.
That could be a good enough reason to back the over here against relegation-threatened Everton but then add into the equation the hosts' five-goal performance last time out and it feels like goalscoring should be a theme throughout this latest clash.

Everton vs Manchester City flier bet
- Pick: John Stones to score anytime
- Odds: 9/1 (SkyBet)
Whilst the usual suspects of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne have stolen the headlines of late, there have been few better performers for Manchester City than John Stones in recent weeks.
The centre-back has adopted a hybrid role that gives him much more influence in midfield and has even seen him join the City attack much further up the field in central areas.
Add to that the fact that he netted against Arsenal recently and that he's a former Everton player — and former stars often come back to haunt their old sides — and this selection seems like a well-considered punt.
