Preview Manchester City Premier League, Nov 21, 2021
Preview Manchester City picked up a 2-0 win over archrivals Manchester United at Old Trafford with 73,000 spectators in the stands. An own goal from Eric Bailly (7' O.G.) had the sky-blue-wearing side in the lead inside the opening ten minutes. Right at the stroke of halftime, Bernardo Silva (45') doubled City’s lead. An uneventful second half followed, with the scoreline remaining the same at the end of the second forty-five. With only one defeat in five Premier League games, DWWLW, the Cityzens moved one spot from 3rd to 2nd place, having picked up 23 points after 7W, 2D, & 2L. Pep Guardiola aims for the win in a bid to remain within touching distance of first-placed Chelsea. The Blues have a tricky fixture against Leicester City on Saturday. Pep's side has an impeccable record against the Toffees, scoring 21 times and conceding only five goals against Everton in the last seven league games. The 50-year-old appears to have settled on the 4—3—3 formation with a Grealish—Foden—Jesus design in attack. Raheem Sterling appears to be on his way out of the club in January, possibly for Barcelona, due to reduced playing time ever since the arrival of Jack Grealish. Uncorroborated reports suggest that Liverpool is also keeping tabs on the situation surrounding their former player.
Preview Everton Premier League, Nov 21, 2021
Preview Everton picked up a goalless draw against Spurs at Goodison Park before the break and dropped one spot from 10th to 11th place on the Premier League table. After a fairytale start to the season, reality appears to have caught up with Rafael Benítez and the Toffees. The club remains without a win in five Premier League games: DLLLD, and have 15 points from 4W, 3D, & 4L. The cracks are beginning to appear in Rafael Benítez’s side. On Sunday, the 61-year-old will look to remedy the situation and save his side from slipping further down the table. A point would be good enough for the moment against the second-best in the Premier League. Everton will be keeping an eye on City’s Gabriel Jesus, who has scored eight goals in eight Premier League appearances against the club. The villain has a deadly average of 1 goal every 69 minutes against Everton. A 4—4—1—1 formation with Richarlison at the top is expected. Mason Holgate picked up a red at the death in the game against Spurs and is suspended for this fixture.
