The Premier League is back to providing football fans with entertainment following the international break. Manchester City will host Everton at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, December 31.
Prior to the international break, the Citizens’ stellar performance began to wane. The Toffees, however, are having a difficult time this year and are in much worse shape than they were in previous years.
Manchester City, the league’s reigning champions, recently played with a slight drop in performance. Even though three victories and two defeats in five games may not seem like a bad record, it is unexpected from Pep’s team.
The Citizens have ten wins, two losses, and two draws from their 14 total games this season. Additionally, they are playing outstanding football as evidenced by their current goal differential of 40:14.
Everton, on the other hand, was consistently a strong force, never quite at the top but always close. They got off to a rocky start this season, and it hasn’t gotten any better. They have a win, a draw, and three losses in their last five games.
You can really see how poorly they are currently performing after 16 games. Just three victories, five draws, and eight defeats. Additionally, a goal differential of 12:19 indicates that they are scoring 0.75 goals per contest. They are currently ranked 17th on the table based on these outcomes.
They might be relegated at the end of the season if these results persist!
The Citizens are far superior after countless Premier League games. Man City has won all five of its most recent league games. Additionally, the Toffees’ most recent victory over City came in 2017.
