Manchester City Match previews Manchester City v Everton: match preview

After the convincing 2-0 win at Brighton in the campaign opener, Manchester City face a sterner test in Everton. Pep Guardiola’s default system may now be a back three which is why the West Bromwich Albion central defender Jonny Evans is being pursued. The last time City faced Ronald Koeman’s side they suffered a 4-0 defeat at Goodison Park. The corresponding home league game was a 1-1 draw City dominated, so the manager will hope that match, not January’s reverse, is an augury of Monday’s meeting. Jamie Jackson
