Manchester City v Everton: Live GameThread

Can Everton really beat Manchester City after drawing consecutively to Norwich City and Arsenal?

People are wondering if we will ever win another match after a string of draws. Things especially don't bode well this week when we travel to Etihad to play Manchester City. It doesn't help that we have a bunch of injuries as well, the injury to Baines being the most important (although it looks like he might play today).

Even though we have played Man City quite well in the recent history, I don't see that having any relevance in today's form. I don't see a victory here. I would be more than happy with a draw.

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Naismith, Gibson, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic

Subs: Mucha, Oviedo, Heitinga, Hitzlsperger, Barkley, Vellios, Gueye

Man City Starting XI: Hart, Maicon, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov, Y. Toure, Barry, Silva, Nasri, Tevez, Dzeko

Subs: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, K. Toure, Sinclair, Garcia, Aguero, Balotelli
