Man City have won only two of their last seven matches against Everton in all competitions and have managed only one clean sheet in that run. Everton have drawn their last three PL away matches against City, with only four goals being scored in these meetings (two each).

City haven't lost a PL match against a non "big six" opponent since January 2017, against Everton. Since then, they have won 139 points out of a possible 153 in these matches (W44 D7 L0).

Under Pep Guardiola, City have conceded seven PL goals against Everton. Against no other side have they shipped more.

Since the start of last season, Raheem Sterling has been directly involved in 26 goals in 21 PL home matches, with 17 strikes and nine assists.
