Manchester City travel to Goodison Park this Saturday to take on Everton knowing the Blues are one victory away from securing a third Premier League title should they overcome the Toffees.
The Blues are hoping to record a fourth successive league victory by toppling Everton and put them within’ two points of capturing their fifth top-flight league trophy.
Surprisingly, the Toffees shook City on game-week two when they held Pep Guardiola’s side to a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium; subsequently the only dropped points City have suffered on home soil.
Everton will be stiff opponents for title-chasing City after Sam Allardyce’s side continue to produce inconsistent performances under his tenure and Saturday’s clash against the Blues could be the ideal game for him to showcase he is the right man for the job at Goodison Park.
City have a fully fit squad to choose from as Sergio Aguero is expected to return from a knee injury that kept him out of City’s 0-2 victory over Stoke last time out. Benjamin Mendy could feature for the Blues after a seven-month layoff.
Here is the team Pep Guardiola could pick against Everton.
