Everton and Manchester City will take on each other in the Premier League matchday 16 on Monday. The kick-off is at 20:00 GMT.
The Toffees' 1-0 victory over Sheffield United on Saturday saw Carlo Ancelotti's men jump to second in the league standings ahead of their final PL game in 2020. What's more, Everton come into this one on the back of a four-game winning streak in the Premier League which includes victories over Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal.
The Citizens also managed a win on Boxing Day as Pep Guardiola's side defeated Newcastle 2-0 to extend their run without a loss in the league to six games. Nevertheless, City are now fifth in the standings, three points behind the Toffees with a game in hand.
Richarlison won't be available for the hosts due to concussion protocols while James Rodriguez remains a doubt with a calf problem.
Eric Garcia is the only injury absentee in Guardiola's squad. Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker, meanwhile, will miss their side's trip to Goodison Park after testing positive for Covid-19 over the weekend.
With a few key players missing this clash for Everton, we'd say that Man City are slight favourites to claim all three points on Monday. Nevertheless, the Toffees' position in the table and their recent wins over some of the league's top clubs suggest that Ancelotti's side are set to give the Citizens a hard time this time around.
