Everton vs. Manchester City: Team Lineups and News

Jamie McDonald

Tottenham's loss earlier today means Everton has virtually guaranteed a trip to Europe, only a 20 goal swing in the next two matches can change that. Any points tonight would officially seal a European adventure for Roberto Martinez. That said 4th is still an option, Everton has to win out and hope Arsenal drops at least 4 points. It is unlikely, but anything can happen in the Premier League.

Gareth Barry will be absent from this one due to the Premier League loan rules, and it appears Everton might be going for a 3-5-2 with Stones, Alcaraz, and Jagielka in the back. Either that or Martinez is using Alcaraz or Jags as a defensive midfielder.

Join us below to discuss the final home match of the season.

Everton XI: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Naismith, McCarthy, Lukaku, Barkley, Osman, Coleman, Stones, Alcaraz

Everton Subs: Robles, McGeady, Deulofeu, Distin, Garbutt, Ledson

Man City XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany (c), Demichelis, Clichy, Garcia, Toure, Milner, Nasri, Dzeko, Aguero.

Man City Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Kolarov, Silva, Fernandinho, Negredo, Jovetic.
