It was another exasperating Goodison Park clash last weekend for Everton, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to lowly Burley.

After Liverpool’s 1-0 win at Wolves on Monday, the Blues are now seventh in the Premier League, but only the bottom five have worse home records than Carlo Ancelotti’s side this season.

Matthew and Geno discussed the loss to the Clarets on the latest episode of SOS Radio, looking at how identical this felt to recent home defeats to Newcastle and Fulham in particular, sympathy for Mason Holgate, the worrying re-occurrence of Jordan Pickford’s rib injury and more.

They guys then previewed Everton’s next match; the visit to Goodison of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final.

Champions-elect City have won an astonishing 23 of their last 24 matches in al competitions, including a 3-1 win in the Premier League at Goodison last month.

So, how can Everton stop them? Should Ancelotti shuffle his pack, and if so, how? Is it better for Everton to play City now than at Wembley later in the competition? And what lessons can be learn from their defeat to them in the league in February?
